Heading Down Thursday

Recommended Posts

Sounds like fishing has been a little tough based on Phil's recent OC reports. Guessing this constant generation is taking a toll with very cold water and sub-optimal O2. Oh well, will be nice to get the boat wet for a few days. We typically fish fall creek to the landing. Been a long time since I have tried to go above fall creek and that was back when I had a basic lake jon. Might give it a try with two units.

Honestly don't know why it's so slow.  Can blame it on a lot of things but none make sense.  Yes the water is cold but it's been cold most of the winter.  And the DO (o2) is excellent.

You can find and catch a lot of stocker rainbows up in the creeks right now.

But if you don't like that (and I really don't personally), there are some quality trout to be caught if you want to work for it.  But you have to get out early and stay late, especially on these bright days.... although it looks like we're in for some weather which should be good for catching fish.

Hit the banks, the eddies, with black and brown jigs.  And hit everything with jerks baits, especially early and late.

On One Cast, I generally try places I haven't fished in a while.  Or I'll hit places where I know I have a better chance to catch something... it's split about 50/50.  I'll be writing a report today so watch for it.

I went out to prove fish could be caught and was pretty successful.  Watch One Cast... but I fished 2 lb line, light jigs and slower water.  They're there...

Fished the bluff bank afterwards and didn't do well at all.  Even in the eddies.  But I think if you're after bigger fish, have to stay on the deeper water and just keep banging the bluff banks.  Did have some chasers... may be throw a jerk bait early.

Quick update for Friday fishing. Much tougher today than yesterday. Caught a few in Turkey Creek on jigs,  rooster tails, and orange power eggs. Afternoon was better than morning. Didn't get any bites in Roark Creek. Finished the day drifting from Monkey Island to the landing and caught most fish of the day. Fish caught on drifting rigs with berkely mice tails. Both bubble gum/white and orange/chartreuse colors on the mice tails. A lot of boats today.
