Hey folks,

GET OUT THERE!!! Went trout fishing last night and it was AWESOME! The pig browns were on the feed and couldn't resist the 'ol #11 original rapala. Not to mention that these temps kept the evening bug-free & the weed growth is still (barely) managable. Quit complaining about this weather and take advantage of PERFECT trout conditions!!!

JA!

Dark30,

Must have slipped your mind. This weekend is Smallmouth opener! The middle, main and NOrth Branches of the Root river will provide hours of hardcore smallmouth excitement. Now you have the best of both worlds, trout and smallmouth!!!
Keep the rods bendin'!!! Jim W

WET NETS!

I too went to forestville yesterday morning and caught about 20 trout in 2 hours. Nothing real big, but the best fishing I have ever seen there.

Bud,

sounds like you had a good day out? What seemed to be the best presentation for you? Trout fishng, like JA stated is indeed VERY good to excellent! I haven't heard of many hatches(for flyfisherman) since it has been wet and cool, but that first sunny day should turn things on! Hopefully, I can get a few hours in this weekend. Somewhere in between the rain within the counter clockwise system that has plagued us for the past 4 days!!! Jim W

Hay Jim,
Used my trusty old spinning gear with 6 lb. test and a black roster tail spinner. I think that the somewhat high water and the cloudy skys are perfect for spinning gear.

Went to the Root today (Forestvill State Park)Caught close to 35 trout (C&R) in about 3 1/2 hours, it was GREAT!!. I used a yellow/red Panter-Martin sipinner. I talk to some fly-fishermen they had no luck, so try some spinners out there.

Good Luck,

Ed
