View Full Version : Jenkinson?

First time poster, long time lurker.

Taking the kids to Sly Park this week on wednesday. I usually fish for smallmouth there, but with the kids I'd rather soak/troll for some trout.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to the boards. As far as Jenkinson goes I wouldn't be much help. I've only fished it once and the only fish of the day fell right through the net.

Once again, Welcome.

Have'nt had much luck there either 2 small rainbows trolling
in three seperate occasions. I would get an early start to
beat the wakeboards, this being the last week of summer
vacation! Both fish hit on a gold bikini needlefish.
Good luck Oh ya don't bring a negative father in-law
that says there's no fish in this lake!

It might be a good time to jig for macks if you can find some on the sonar...maybe a gibbs minnow or spoon like a big krocadile, I've heard you can hook some dead minnows on all 3 points and plop it right in front of them..they'll whack it..

If you are looking for trout, go to where the ski boats are not. Near dams and inlets, but not too close. The water is pretty warm. I won't fish it until at least October.
By the way, good luck and welcome to the boards!

Simple Lake - Right by the Launch, From the Island to the north cove should be Macks. Go deep trolling jointed Raps. Browns and Rainbows find a happy medium from the inlet to the deep portion of the inlet. Look for the birds. They seem to follow the bait balls. 30' - 50' Flasher / Dodger w' crawler.

Definately weekdays. Using boats go for live baits behind flashers otherwise you can catch your limits anywhere close to the boat launch with worms. Good luck and enjoy pollock pines!
