When I go to Beardsley I usually go with spinners (uncle larry's, wedding ring) worm combows (get it? com"bows"?) or small castmasters and do pretty good. Some one told me to use nothing but crawlers behind a dodger...I tried and it works, pretty well. I still don't have a Go To lure for there because I don't get there really often. Seems like I usually fall back on the old reliables. What is the consensus for the best all around "Beardsley" lure?
This ought to get a million remarks Huh?

Wedding ring W/a crawler is always great. Try a Triple teaser too.

My top producer is a worm behind a dodger.

A night crawler behind the ol' Ford Fenders has been my go to set up there. A small rapala has also done well. Given the downside of using fenders (drag on the fish) I'll start with just a wedding ring and a crawler
but if the bite is slow, out come the fenders.

I'm headed up today (even with the moon) so I'll try them and let you know which one wins!

I done very well for brown using a goldeneye down about 15 ft on a downrigger. For rainbow - meat and metal.

I went up today, one brown on a blue and silver needle-fish, 2 bows on a weddingring/crawler, and like 8 bows on a silver dodger/crawler or brass dodger with glitter tape/crawlercombo. The dodger/crawler wins for the day!

Have fished there for 50+ years, don't fish there any more, small fish. Can't beat 1/2 nite crawler behind blades. Usually best fishing in afternoon when wind comes up at the enterence to the narrows sometimes just drift with the wind. Used to be real good with fat rainbows and browns with orange meat.

I have had good luck chucking 4"-4 1/2" gold/black pattern plugs. Brand didn't seem to matter. Same goes for afterbay...

A couple or three yrs. ago I nailed eight or nine C & R on gold and red Thos. Buoyant lures in just a couple hours just before sunset. They were planters. It was the only time I've fished it.

Seems like silver is the best color for the bows. Last weekend they liked silver dodgers and silver weddingrings. In two days I caught about 20 trout and only 2 were browns...one on a silver and blue needlefish and 1 on a silver and green weedingring. I never even got to my Rapalas or Rebels. I guess next time I'll try to target the browns. Maybe a silver apex?

I've caught a limit of holdover rainbows on a gold/blank F13 Rapala while trying to target browns.
