  1. Crabtree ramp will be out of the wind. Windy banks from Crabtree to the dam provide good spinnerbait oppourtunities. If it gets crazy windy you can get back to the ramp easily by staying off the main lake.
  2. Buffalo Spawn before the Carp and they are huge.I never have have taken them on the the fly. I have caught them below Truman Dam on jigs. My brother snagged one on Stockton with a spinnerbait and it spewed eggs all over the boat and we had a heck of a time cleaning them up. That fish was between 20 and 30 lbs.
  3. I've caught a lot of Carp on Flies at Stockton over the years averaging between four and 6 pounds, but that's been mostly when the lake levels are low and in the back of coves. Never tried it when the water was way up but I plan to. I sight fish for them in shallow water with flies that sink to the bottom and mimic crayfish or large nymphs. Thanks for the input.
  4. i haven't fished at all on Stockton since the water has gone up. I've been watching posts from you guys and it looks like conditions are tough, which sucks. In years past I've noticed that when the water is up in the brush you might find big bluegills in there. I like to fish for those guys with a fly rod and it fills a void when other species aren't cooperating. Also, there may be carp cruising those ares as well, which I target with a fly rod. I like the dam area in particular because of the clear water. Have any of you guys noticed any of this type activity on the upper part of the lake? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Thank you Guys for your service. I served 4 years Air Force, security Police Bomb Dog Handler. So proud to be an American!
  6. Caught a lot of short walleyes today trollig up by the dam , from 6" to 14 7/8", and less Crappie than yesterday. Just fished the morning and pulled out before noon. Water temp at 70. Pretty good breeze today which made it feel a lot cooler, good thing. Trolled Flicker 9D in purple over pink. Be careful at Crabtree ramp. The metal ramp walking up to the dock is slippery as snot when you step on it if it's wet and it angles up because of high water. I didn't fall but if I did, oh boy. Tight lines!
  7. Phil, I tied up some of your mink scuds and caught a nice bow at the rebar hole today. Not much wind today, but still cold.
  8. I haven't fished Pomme for years, and when I did it was for Bass, Whites, and Crappie.i am going to try and get a Muskie on the fly rod this year, operative word "try." Just wondering what part of the lake has good numbers? I've caught Pike on flies up north and it was fantastic. Any pointers on Pomme would be appreciated.
  9. When I can't find colors I want I mark them with a Sharpie over the shad colored version. Probably doesn't matter, just fun to experiment. This little Walleye took on more than he could handle. He was quickly returned unharmed after posing for the camera. I catch Crappie on lots of different crankbaits, but lately the Flicker Shad is outperforming others for me.
  10. Ok, misunderstood you. Lol!...nice rod.
  11. Great catch! I had a friend who passed in th 90's and we used to fly fish the little Sac together on his friend's land. We caught lots of Whites up there and had a great time. One time he got an 80th ounce jig caught in the cartilage of his ear while he was casting, right after we got there. I tried to get that thing out but couldn't so we fished until we caught our limit and then headed home so he could get it taken out by a doctor. His wife wasn't too happy with us for staying and fishing while that hook was in his ear. She said he might've got blood poisoning, and we weren't going to argue with her. It's hard to leave when the fish are biting. 😟 A few weeks ago I caught some Crappie on my four weight fly rod near Aldrich. Lately I've been fishing the upper end and catching bass on streamer flies on my six weight. I use an intermediate sinking line. I'm catching a few on the wiggle minnow too. Last week I killed them on the Ned. Caught one small walleye on the flyrod too. I switch back-and-forth between fly and conventional tackle and that keeps things real interesting. The fishing has been unbelievable this year! Thank you for your report.
