Short Trip Early This Morning

Recommended Posts

They blew the horns just as I stepped out of the door at 5:50 am this morning... man!! I was counting on at least a couple of hours of still water-- and I thought there were a bunch of guys wading up at the dam who were ticked too. But had a "date" with Steve Dickey at 6 am so I headed out anyways.

We boated to Lookout and started throwing 3/32nd oz sculpin or olive jigs and catch trout on our first casts. And it didn't stop. Made one drift, then two and then headed to the dam. Made two drifts up there.

We threw mostly sculpin and something- combo colors, sculpin and orange or olive or ginger and they all caught fish. We had several pushing 18 inches and one over 20 (pic). I had another that felt much bigger and Steve had a hog on but broke off.

We did switch to 1/8th oz one the water started moving pretty good. I wouldn't call this morning incredible- good may be- but the size we were catching made the trip worth it.



Same fish in both pics.

At least these reports are good incentive to work hard on my physical therapy rehab so I can get down there soon!!!
