Sorry to say I haven't been much the past week but have talked to quite a few that have.

John Johnson was just here for a couple of days and said fishing was very good for him. He boats above Fall Creek and fishes zebra midges almost exclusively with the exception of a scud every once in a while.

Saturday was not the greatest fishing day but it was a great day to be fishing. High sun, no current and little wind. Did do well using jigs under a float 4-6 ft deep between Fall and Short Creeks as well as throwing 3/32 nd oz jigs straight, no floats and working them off the bottom. Best colors- sculpin, olive and brown/orange.

Power baits worked ok but worms did the best in the bait catagory. Minnows are working good but the water has to be running to be the best.

Crappie are starting to move into winter positions. I've heard the dock and Fish House have been targets for holding crappie- jigs, minnows and swimming minnows. Also try along the wall, mouth of Roark and Turkey Creeks. I like using pink or chartreuse jigs.

We had a 3.80 lb brown caught and weighed in the tournament Saturday which took big trout. Had another rainbow about 2 lbs weighed in. Alittle over 10 won with about 6 teams between 6 and 7 lbs. Weight were not as good as the Boswell or Masters mainly due to the nice conditions, I believe.
