Fishing Report….sorta

Well…first post in a long while and it’s not really much about fishing.  More of a water report than anything else.  I hit Big Lake with Tom Horvath this am.  Glad to say there is plenty of water this year.   Drifts along the road in were six-seven ft tall in some areas.  Water in Railroad is about 6′ from the bottom of the ramp and goes back 70-80′ into the cove.  Went all the way back to the fence line around the corner in the north cove.  Marked one fish in all that time.  I remembered that Rick Law told me it takes the fish awhile to get back into Railroad some years, especially if it’s been a long winter.  Packed up and hit South Cove to see if we could find some fish.  About a dozen boats out….all in the deeper water still.  Went to launch and my fin strap broke….end of my fishing.  Just another extra I’m gonna have to carry around along with all the other extra stuff in the back of my truck.  You can see why it’s not much of a fishing report.

Sunrise has water all the way back to the cinder pit.  There is water at the boat ramp across from it.  Not sure how deep it is but it’s probably been at least 10-12 years since we’ve had water back there.  Crescent looked very good.  Water is not up to the high water mark but it has a ton more in it than I’ve seen in awhile.  A-1 is maxed out and Horseshoe is spilling over into the creek below.  I hit it about 2 weeks ago and landed 6 walking the bank in a three hour period using soft hackle SS 60’s w/orange bead.  Biggest went 16″  All in all, it looks like we may have a decent season.  Although I’ve seen it before where the water gets high and the fish seem to disappear.  Not complaining, I’m loving it

Glad to have the time to spend on the site.  I’ll try and keep the posts coming
