9/26 LIR Report

Recommended Posts

Started out the day around 9:30 in the Watts area. The water was a little murky, I assume from a pretty good rain the previous evening. Didn't do any good at all there, so I moved up closer to the dam. Ended up with 17, mostly on egg patterns and various midges. Zero surface activity.

Went to the river yesterday and found the water brown with very little to no visibility. First time I have been there since early spring. The river has changed a lot. Went to the gravel parking lot and fished the back side of the island and downstream . The only thing I could get anything to bit on was a green san juan worm. Out of the 16 fish caught, half were trout and half were channel cats. They ranged from 6 inches to 15 inches. Was a little surprised when I caught the first one but after a couple you could tell right off if it was going to be a trout or catfish. First time I have caught any catfish there, did ODWC get a mixed lot of fish this last week. Has anyone else been there lately and had the same experience?

That catfish thing is weird. I went a couple of weeks ago and it seems like the water keeps getting nastier. I was going to go up as close to the dam as I could to check the clarity up there, but ran out of time. I don't know if the water coming out of the bottom of the lake is off color, or if there is just a bunch of silt built up from the high water awhile back. The fishing was decent, but I sure miss the clearer water.

After they sounded the horn we went down stream to about 1/2 mile above Gore Landing. The water was a lot clearer but we caught no fish. So I think the water being released is really brown. Because the it seemed a lot of the dirt settled out by the time the water got down that far.
