  1. Over the last 6 nights in a row I have been fishing streamers up at the dam. The flow each night was approximately a half unit give or take a few cfs. Learning how to get the streamer into position through the drift took a few nights of playing around with and a long conversation with duckydoty! However after some adjustments to my technique, which included a 5 foot slow sinking leader and a short 2 to 3 foot piece of 2x tippet on the end of that and also learning that my rod tip was supposed to stay In The water haha, my success and hook up rate increased drastically over the last few nights. I had one night in a 3 hour period where I caught over 20 fish and one trophy! All primarily on the black pine squirrel streamer. I tried other colors but black seemed to be the hot color this past week. Also each night I fished from the cable down to outlet 2 that is where I fished every night!
  2. 12/12/2020 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!
