The unpredictable Lake and Estuary have been predictably silent. No changes today.
DSR reported that the morning was quiet but after the rain there was activity. I spoke to so anglers and they reported the opposite. Anglers that I spoke with were doing well from the early morning to about lunch. They left and the anglers I spoke with said things were slow and waited out the rain but did not improve. Based on the discussion that I had it looks like expectation, technique and location were the determining factors. The early morning anglers were following the fish up from the bottom to the top of the property. Additionally, since they expected to work for it they seemed to think that what they got was above and beyond. The anglers in the afternoon had some expectation because it was supposed to be the “peak” and thought rain would make it better. However, they just fished in one place only.
From the Blackhole to the Ball Park there was minimal movement. The movement was more singles or doubles instead of moving in schools. Most anglers called it quits early cause they got discouraged. Seemed like there was an air of gloominess.
As fish have been moving at night most of these fish are pooling up from upper Sportsman to Trestles and they are hiding out in the nooks and crannies of Ellis Cove. Ellis Cove has all of these little small creeks and roots where fish are just hiding out.
Burt continues to improve and kings, browns, cohos and steel are pooled up at the Dam. Float fishing seems to be best to get at fish.
The Oak continues to see fish move up to the Dam. Most anglers are being successful as they float fish from above.
Oswego continues to get better at the wall with the skein bite and the meat hunters are doing well at the dam. Additionally, trout are starting to show up all the way at the dam.
