Our winter run steel head are coming in. Blue Creek area is where most of the action is right now. Some boats are limiting. Bank fishermen are starting to fish now also. I have heard mixed reports from the bank. They are using corky and yarn, jig and bobber and some spinners. A little variety of things, and a variety of colors.
At Barrier Dam they are catching some of the hook nose silvers coming in. The boats have also caught some big silvers on the upper six miles. The average has been 12lbs. to 18lbs. Nice fish. Casting plugs has been working for boaters. Bank fishermen are using jigs topped off with a piece of cured prawn or shrimp. Shrimp and eggs has been the bait of choice.
If you want to catch trout, Blue Creek area or So. County Park in Toledo is the place to go.
Water is high right now, with the cold weather coming it should drop some.
I guess it’s that time of year.
Bundle up, take a day, relax and go fishing.
(Remember to use barbless hooks)
