Sam, with a party of two aboard, launched at Bertrand Launch Ramp at 6:30 this morning. It was trout they were out to find and they were not to be disappointed. Fishing, even in the unexpected rain, was very good. Though the initial bite was slow, the trout became more interested as the morning wore on. After putting several in the live well, trolling was on the agenda. The walleye that were stacked up in the bottom in the 59º water for the past week had moved to parts unknown, but the rainbows were plentiful and mostly large. Sadly, a real beauty at 14 inches had to be tossed back in the slot area. The bait bite was on yellow and salmon peach for me from the bank this morning, and orange and rainbow were a great hit from the boat. Following the trolling episode, the folks had their limit and chose to enjoy a tour of the river before heading back to clean the catch! Looks like there is a great dinner on tap!Generation is scheduled from 3 through 7 PM. The high temperature for today is predicted to hit 87º F., under mostly sunny skies, ( HA! ), with a chance of thunderstorms throughout the afternoon. Winds are southerly at 10 MPH.
