Sorry to have been MIA for a bit. We have been fishing and not catching and it just seemed redundant to post the same thing over and over. (Stupid river salmon lol).
Up at 3:30 and on the water before light at 7am. Boy it's staying dark longer!
Mike and I head out to try some bait fishing back in the Jackson creek arm. We spent a couple of cold and unproductive hours on the shady side of the inlet.
Time to troll! We made a full pass around the lake pulling all of our favorites and go to lures for no love. We marked fish high and low and tried to target them without success.
So back to bait fishing! This time we went a little further back in the canyon. Still in the shade. Brrr! But then Mikes side rod starts to dance and we aren't cold anymore! A nice fighting 15" Lassen trout on power eggs that were half white and half clear with garlic scent and a white honey worm.
A little later one of my rods goes off and I jump on it! Yes another 15" fat trout this time on white power eggs and a brown power worm. Effectively getting the skunk off the boat for the both of us!
The river salmon hunt was extra hard for us this year. (Like zero). So we are glad to be back in our familiar stomping grounds.
This was Amador's first plant of the year. So I was happy to get two fish.
Talked to a guy who had a few caught trolling Rapalas shallow. We tried that as well on our way out. Didn't work for us but am I bummed? Nope! We had a nice day, Not much boat traffic and caught two great fish for lunch today.
Trout fishing is dear to my heart and it's only going to get better from here on!
Pics from the day.
Kind of in the reverse order of how I wanted it but that's how it worked.

Mike and Kristy. Excellent pictures as always! Nice to know you're still getting on the water. My wife and I are beginning to lean in the direction of the lake waters instead of the river as well. Last year was no problem catching those (stupid) river salmon, this year is zero for five trips. May give it one (maybe two) more attempts before the switch-over if I am hopeful enough based on forum contributors. The sturgeon await!
