Anyone down there for the opener?

Recommended Posts

Water clarity wasn’t the greatest. Fish seemed to he very congregated in certain spots. I helped my fiance catch her five at the buzzer and then fishing slowed. We basically waited around till 9:30 to get in a spot where fish were biting and then caught a 10-12 in short order down below the bathroom hole on a black/yellow jig and orange trout worm.

I’m not sure how many tags were sold but park was the busiest tyat I can remember seeing today.

I've been too a lot of opening days and I think this was the busiest I've ever seen. For as busy as it was, it was awfully boring as far as the people watching went. The folks that hooked lunkers actually knew how to fight fish, nobody fell in the water, nobody got in a fight and everybody was calm and collected when there was a tangle. The best thing I saw all day was some guy in a crappy old Mustang left his rod and reel sitting on top of the car and slung it out on to the highway as he left the park.

People watching used to be as much fun as the fishing

I always tell everybody that's the best part about it. Going down solo strictly for the fishing isn't really worth it, but bringing friends and standing together just having fun is a good time. From a fishing standpoint, you're far better off waiting till about noon and going down as a lot of people will clear out and you can actually get a decent spot where fish are congregated. We didn't get a very good starting spot so we basically just went through the motions for the first few hours and then moved in to a good spot once people started thinning out to clean fish. That's just the nature of the beast when it comes to park trout. Most of the fish are going to be ganged up in small areas.
