Hey Stu

Stu,

I think I'm coming up there this weekend. Regardless of me, then my dad and brother will be around for sure. Are the reports still Red hot? Weather looks good- should be a great weekend for some kitty hunting.

Scoot, sorry for the late response, I've been busy!

I wouldn't call the action fast & furious, however the river is producing nothing but quality kitties!

The night bite is the ticket right now, this is due the warm water temps. As August rolls alaong and water temps continue to drop, the action will only continue to improve.

Currently, water temps are 73 degree's, last week they were 79 degree's!

Stu, my brother, father, mother, and a couple friends went up. They did ok- caught some fish, but not a lot. They struggled until they threw corks up really shallow near the dam- like you suggested, they caught some very nice fish doing that.

I hope to see you this October!

Scoot: I long lined by that flat area last evening from about 7:30 til 9PM and the tally was 6 boated with a few lost. ALL were fat and slammed the bait. That is a nice area isn't it. If only we can get that metal bar out of the river now. I am sure we will.

To me the kitties seem to be fall fish, all fat and putting on the feed bag.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
