Spring has arrived and the bite is starting to get good!
The rivers are really starting to show signs of life. The white bass are at the end of their run and the Hybrids and Stripers are starting their spawn migration run up both rivers.
The lake is still fishing well, there is still a lot of fish in the main lake. For people like me that do feel comfortable in skinning water this is great news.
Please Note: According to our friend Captain Eidson “skinning water” — the shallow headwaters of the river where it’s only 2-3 feet deep, for example – “eats fiberglass” on boats.
Thread Fin shad has been the bait of choice both on the rivers and on the main lake.
Planer boards and Freelines are working best on the main lake fished in the mouth of the creeks, along with small pockets off the main lake.
The river bite is basically the same. But add a couple of cut bait lines with your spread. Fishing should hit its peak in the next week.
Grab the kids and hit the water. Call me and we’ll catch you some fish!
