    Hadn’t fished it since June due to the tough bite. Well, the tough bite continues, at least for me. Plenty of fish but few takers. Found a good load of fish on some deep gravel. Marked a lot of fish. Lindy rig and crawler in 29 feet. Landed the first bite on the first pass, a very plump 20 1/2″ that gave a good fight and swallowed the hook, so I thought here we go. The second bite on the next pass dropped it. That was it for bites. Also tried power corkin”, a blade bait and lead core and stick bait. Had some fish flies in some areas.

    Thanks for the report. Sounds very similar to what I have been hearing

    Water temp was 71 in the morning and 76 by 2:00 pm before the wind got going.

    Man, it’s gotta be frustrating marking that many and not being able to get them to go.

    It’s also good to know they are eating so well and staying healthy.
