Weather hot hot and hotter, Fishing OK :) Float tubed bouy line near the boat ramp Wed. morning and picked up a couple of trout on crawlers and two on power worms 20 to 30', Saw two others caught by a boat trolling over the shelf at the ramp. Trolled Friday morning with my 8 year old son trying out our "new to us boat" older valco with even older motor, but she trolled great. He caught 2, one on uncle larry and the other on pin minnow 20 to 23' at the dam. I got 3 or 4 hits on watermelon dodger followed by a brass perch but could not bring one in. Had a great morning with my son.
When we were leaving Sat. morning saw a guy with what looked to be 2- 3+pounders
Hope this info helps if someone is heading that way.

Nice report and great fishing with son. Hope he caught a tagged fish for one of those ice creams :D Or did you get to buy him one. I think they are well known for the super huge scoops.

I hadn't eaten ice cream for years untill a trip to Collins. I had one of their super huge cones and have been hooked since :D
