Fishing Report – October 23, 2009
I started fishing the lakes last Friday. Flat calm and mostly sunny. We managed to land 14 fish, but nothing to write home about. Bucktails and Lyman Plugs were the order of the day.
Back out on the water on Monday. Again flat calm most of the day, but on an outside turn at “Rainbow Bay”, an 11lb Rainbow slammed our fly and took off running. That fly must have been going 4 mph on the outside turn, making for an exciting take. The conditions then changed from a 4 inch chop to flat calm, so I put out a # 69 Lyman plug at 21ft. Half an hour later we had a 6 lb trout on it. We landed 9 fish that day to 11lbs.
Tues we won’t talk about. It seemed like I had no idea how to fish. No matter what we tried the fish were not very interested. We dropped a couple of short biting fish, and landed a couple of trout to 5 lbs. Maybe some of you know what I’m talking about. Anyways back to the dock I slinked, to lick my wounds and get ready for the next day.
Out we go at 8:00am on Wed. I’m really worried about a long day with few fish after yesterday. My only hope was that after a day of rest, the fish would be hungry today. Sure enough, I put a couple of flies out, and double header. Put them back out, went a couple of minutes and another double header. Well this helps a guys confidence. 7 fish in the first hour.
We ended up with 13 fish landed that day to 10 lbs.
Water temperature is around 50 degrees. Definitely in the money zone, and it just gets better and better. November and December are excellent Gerrard rainbow months.
The new boat with the hard top is just awesome with the diesel furnace in it. Nice and comfortable for the cool days.
Lets get out fishing!!!
