Time to go out and fish, thereby helping one push April 15th out of mind until next year. Sam and I fished in a few spots below the Beaver Dam. We caught fish at Parker Bend right off the ramps, but only caught and released at that location. Yellow was the color of choice at Parker. We moved to an access path between the campground and Bertrand launch ramp and found that the trout causing all of the surface activity were not too interested in biting power bait. Moved closer to the Beaver Dam and, what a difference! The trout bit on anything we threw, so we decided to take our limit and prep the fillets for smoking. There were a couple of fishing parties who came to wet a line as we were on the way out. Colors we used today were garlic, yellow, fluorescent orange, hatchery formula, fluorescent red, and cheese, (by Gulp). Looks like a good day to go out and try your luck. This is Thursday, so it is likely that stocking of trout will take place at both Parker Bend and at the Bertrand launch ramp. You will see in the photos below, one of the pretty “slot” fish that we released and the trout we took home to prep for smoking.Tomorrow, Sam and I plan on fishing for whites and walleye. Hope to have good news in tomorrows report. The high temperature for today should be 78 degrees F., under partly cloudy skies. Winds should be from the SE at 7 MPH, gusting to 12. Generation is to be from 6 through 11 PM. Tomorrow, the predicted high is 77 degrees F., under cloudy skies with winds mirroring those of today.   DSC_0024
