Today’s fishing report will sound familiar since the story is nearly identical to our last report. We launched at Bertrand at 7:30 and headed upstream while trolling with a floating lure. Our first catch of the day occurred just 20 yards from the launch ramp. This was the first trout ever for the young man on board, so we were cheering for him. We hooked two more beauties while trolling but just didn’t manage to boat them.
We stopped at a favorite spot to anchor for a time. Using power bait paste and power eggs, we caught several more trout. Today we had success with various colors, but red did not work well for us. As happened yesterday, we did have a few problems with our lines hanging up on rocks and such. Our time was coming to an end, so we trolled our way back to the launch ramp and caught another for the live well. Now, if we were using “Pond Rules” where every catch counts, we caught our limit, including both fishermen and the guide. By Game and Fish rules, the three of us were 2 short.
Hope to see you on the river!
