I fished the River for the first time in three weeks.It was mostly overcast with temps in the 30s with 3 mph winds.The day started off really slow until I hooked the first fish of the day an approximate 18 Rainbow but lost it three feet from shore! The fish were not very aggressive until the afternoon especially between 2-5 pm! There was quite a bit of icy shorelines but I was able to fish around it. I ended landing 28 fish which included two nice 18 Browns and the best fish of the day an 18 Rainbow! I caught all but two fish on a #7 Rapala Countdown in the Hot Mustard Muddler Pattern! Almost half of the fish caught were 16 or better!
I got back out Sunday with my friend Chet.It was a little colder with temps ranging from 25-35 with pretty much sunny skies and a light wind.The bite was real slow to start but really picked up in the afternoon. I was down River when Chet caught this beautiful 22+ Bow on a Black Crappie Jig.His selfie picture taking needs work! It was definitely a real nice Bow! The pictured Brown was my best fish and the other pictured Brown was a beauty! We both ended up between 20-30!
