Spent the day at the river today, better than work. Covered a whack of water, landed a nice 20 inch Bull trout on one of Bent Rod's Chartreuse jigs, garnished with a tasty piece of pink dyed bait. It was so nice to be ALONE on the river. ;D Still no steel love on that river this year, and running out of time! :wallbash:

Sorry to hear that. Once you get into one, keep fishing runs around there and that run, the seem to be gathering in schools right now, and there are tons of fish around. Landed a nice chromer wild today at around 7 (got out at 5:30). AT LEAST 14 pounds, and have a friend that can back that up.... last 3 days Ive hooked 7 and landed 5 (all have been bullets). 3 were on free hanging roe (no cure, just borax), 1 was on roe bag, 2 on spoons, 1 on shrimp.

I can back you up on that myself. I was on the flow on Monday April 21 and I hooked onto 6, landed 4 and bonked one 12 pound doe hatch that was weighed in at On The Way Store.

Ogo, look for steady (but not too fast moving) water with corridors of large rocks lining the river bed and if there's fish lurking, they will be in and around them (especially in clear water). Cast slightly upriver and keep your line tight and allow your bait or hardware to sweep adjacent to the rocks. Go slightly heavier with lead to slow your drift.
I'll even go as far as to say, go small and bright. Yes, even in clear low water (it's a contradiction to the do's and don'ts, but its a great way to piss off the fish) :thumbup:

I think someone needs to learn how to fish or spend a day with Hotrod! ( touche! )

Don't you hate that you have to kill your first hatch..... I didn't listen to the "law" when I landed a 14 pounder chromer on April 2nd. It took me till 5 days ago to even hook another fish and 4 days ago I finally got another hatch which I killed. Since then I've been averaging 2 fish per day :happy:

Better enjoy it. Times running out, unless you chuck flies down low. ;)

It's fun just catching fish, retaining them isn't really high on my priority list, but being so late in the season, I figure I should keep at least a couple for the BBQ. :yummy:

I would have LOVED to have ONE for the BBQ this year! We caught 5 in total between the 2 of us and all of them were wild :'( Not very good odds - I guess its time to get the boat out on one of the lakes and at least try for one of those. :confused:
