Night Fishing report taneycomo

The turbidity of the water is getting much clearer, after hearing good reports of night bite from the previous night decided to get out and wade up by the dam!  Got to the hatchery around 10pm started out with the signature series 762 French pearl the first hour had 3 fish between outlet 1 and outlet 2 had  numerous hook up and get off shortly after.  It would seem they were short biting a little bit. However much more active night bite then I have seen in almost 2 months.  Humorous side note I fell over while wading( it was 35 degrees) but didn’t let it deter me, continued fishing.  After a while of trying slightly different retrieval speeds it turned out that and extremely slow retrieve with very short pauses was the most effective for producing the most hook ups. One other side note, they were running a little less than a half unit.  After a little over 1 hour between outlet 1 and 2 we decided to make a move down to the boat ramp around 11pm.  Just 2 casts in by the boat ramp, using a 762 signature series rainbow hooked up with my personal best brown trout length of 30 3/8 inches and we caught one more 19” brown right on the other side of the boat ramp!  Those were the only 2 fish we found down by the boat ramp and it seemed around midnight that they just shut off but an amazing night of fishing and I think we can look forward to a more productive night bite from here on out!

What a fish! This is what night fisherman dream about.

Congratulations on an awesome fish! I told my buddies that next morning that I had them around a 30 incher but they weren't good enough to catch it. 😆
It's interesting that you guys had better luck on the slow retrieve because I was getting spanked by my buddy using a 2" countdown rapala with a fairly quick and snappy retrieve. My catch rate improved once I went to the faster retrieve. Apparently that boat ramp area is where the browns are. The only brown of our trip came on a jig off the rocks right below the ramp. The only place we could get bit that night was that south bank between the cable and the island though.
