Thanks water dog. I think I'm going to go with Silver. I haven't fished there yet, so it will be good to try a new lake.

Which is better from shore Caples or Silver. I fished Caples from shore 3 or 4 weeks ago and did really good down by the spillway. It was my first time fishing there. I was going to fish by the damn but it looked too shallow. I have nevr fished silver.

justme, I fished silver from shore last nov. in blizzard conditions and killed the browns on kastmasters. Never fished caples from shore only by boat.

Went to Silver today and had a good time. I had to work hard for my limit. It was a little frustrating because it seemed like everyone around me was catching them like crazy, but I was finally able to get five in the boat. The one thing that is nice about Silver compared to caples is the ten dollar fee rather then twenty for Caples.

I was just going to ask if you had a boat cause i read the launch at Silver was blocked off do to demolision. You answerd my question.

seemed there were a few campers in the campground @ Caples but it was not full today. had fish on all day today trolling flashers and a worm. hot spots were in front of the dam and the mouth of the back cove.

I was curious how you would setup the flashers and worm? Are you talking about the 12" flashers that you can buy that you put on your line before your leader? Also, how long of a leader do you use from the flashers to the hook? Do you use the entire worm or just enough worm to cover the entire hook? What size hook? Sorry for all the noob questions, I am new to this trolling for trout technique. Thanks.

Noobfisher - I am no expert, but yes, I use the smaller flasher that are about 12" long, crome in color. My leader is about 10-12" long. I have threaded the worn onto the hook and I have also just looped it on. Both have the same results imo. What I found NOT to work was having a long portion of the worm trailing behind the hook. I have used a 1/4" chunk of worm on a hook and caught a fish.
