Over the past three days I have been fishing using several different methods. Sunday, fly-fishing by streaming a dry fly, letting it drift with the current, was on my agenda. It worked out OK, but did not result in as many fish as caught with an ultra-lite spinning rod. Later in the week, things, including location, would change.
On Monday, I fished with Ken and was able to walk in below Spider Creek. Between the two of us, fly-fishing, we caught well over 20 fish. I wanted to work on my new dry fly technique, so I went below Spider Creek Island and did very well! The trout were hungry and were eager to please. We did not keep fish, so I returned later in the morning with a spinning rod and caught a limit that was meant to replenish my supply of freezer fillets. The bite at Bertrand was slow and the fish were a little small.
This morning, I began fishing at Bertrand and found that neither the the bite nor the fish size had improved. Finished my cup of 'heart starter,' and moved below Beaver Dam to see if the trout there were more accommodating. As one can see below, they were. The bite was every couple of minutes on both yellow and salmon peach power bait. Try to get out and enjoy this beautiful day!
Generation today is slated from 4 through 5 PM at 44% of capacity. The high temperature today is expected to hit 86º F. under mostly sunny skies.
