    Not JigFest, but a chilly day in the trout boat. Bret got cold so we had to quit an hour early. Roads got stupid bad with snow and ice on the way home. #GoodTimes

    I usually don’t fish if it’s less than 20 degrees. Usually. Dress appropriately and it’s not so bad.

    Ohhh I’ve had a zootopia of unintended captures. Some worse that others. I think I’m at 4 hooked snakes and 4 turtles too. I kept expecting to hook a gator, but never did. Please understand that I did not want to catch one and never tried to catch one. The nutria rat was bad.

    Yeah, you’ll lose a few fish (or a lot), but all but eliminates trips to the ER for Fish hooks.

    I saw you rolling out this morning. I made a lot of progress re-organizing my fly fishing stuff before heading into work. Glad you had a Good Trip.

    I do. I don’t keep crappie over 13.5 inches or walleye over 25 inches, but that’s just me.

    July 2018 Fishing Report

    The White River below Bull Shoals is fishing Great right now. I don’t typically enjoy fishing in the summer ; Crowds and slower than average fishing combine to ruin the fun for me. But for whatever reason, there are a lot of really nice fish in the water. I suspect the extended periods of generation due to springtime high water levels in BSL has had the fish feeding a lot and growing a lot. Maybe the new regulations are letting some larger fish stay in the river longer also. Lately, there has been higher generation during the heat of the afternoon, but dropping down to 2300 ish CFS the rest of the time. I love that water level ( roughly 2500 CFS) for many sections of the river. I can really work on them with Zig Jigs on 4 and 6 lb line. 1/32 oz Zig Jigs have been doing most of the work lately and some 1/16 oz Jigs in the deepest and fastest stuff I am fishing. I haven’t even thrown the 1/8 oz Jig in quite a while. I’ve been starting with olive/ginger and have not needed to change colors all day. I throw the 1/32 oz on 4 lb P Line CX Premium and the 1/16 oz on 6 lb Nanofil with a 4 or 6 lb P Line CX Premium leader. The cherry on top for me is that I have found a couple “new” areas of the river to fish. I’m still working out some of the details, but they seem to be full of fish and set up well for the ways I like to fish. I’m not sure there is a bad section of the river to fish, but I do like getting away from the crowds and the boat traffic. I trust Kris Nault when he tells me the upper river has a much higher % of Brown trout, but I’m finding a few south of the Hwy 62 bridge. Still the vast majority of what I catch are Rainbow Trout. The Good Old Days are right now. Head to the White River and catch a bunch!

    You know who has a boat? I do. You would NOT have to trailer yours.

    Hey Marty, The Long pole would work like a Champ. They bite all day long. The water level would likely be good all day. Just saying
