There were reports from Saturday that were hoping the late rain would activate the fish to move. but on Sunday things back to the trickle pattern of 2019. It seems fish did but move on Saturday night/early Sunday morning. At daybreak fish moved down low and there was some activity but at sun up it quieted down. There are some predictions being reported that possibly this Thursday we will see the last big push of the season.
There was less movement down low and there did not seem to be new fish into the DSR. However, anglers reported that they saw fish moving from hole to hole. There we no big numbers but if quantity went down it seems quality went up. Lots more steel and browns and more first-timers getting into fish.
Sunday was an odd day in town. less fish and less pressure and it seemed like the negative reports were keeping people out of town. Unfortunately, if you decided to stay home you missed out.
Once again no big numbers and not many on stringers but lots of good quality hookups with steel and browns. The kings were there but you need to swat the zombies away.
As fish are moving into the run at night and the fish are getting into the upper river there was lots of action for anglers ho went to hunting. Some anglers who went up to the upper Trestles to Ellis were able to come upon a small pod of kings. It may have seen a slow day but it seems like the fish cutters were reporting lots of business. So anglers are finding fish.
The weekend brought out everyone and their cousins – lots of people at the dam. Lots of hookups at the dam. There were fish that were moving and some anglers were able to connect in the fast water.
Burt Dam is an EPA nightmare and if you are hoping to sire children I’m not sure you should fish it but Burt Dam produces some of the biggest and baddest browns. If you are a brown trout fisherman and have fished waters in the US you will most likely get your PB at Burt. Just make sure you clean all your gear after you fish there.
