View Full Version : MF Stanislaus & Beardsley Afterbay - May 12

05-13-2012, 06:19 PM
Started around 7am with a couple friends. Fished the Afterbay @ the powerhouse first thing. Hooked 5 browns from 14-16". Landed three of them. Black w/silver blade 1/6oz Rooster tail and 1/6oz yellow w/silver blade. Buddies landed a handful of fish as well all of similar size and same lures.

After a couple hours we walked the river down to the Spring Gap footbridge. We each landed quite a few 'bows and browns. Fish were 8-14" and were caught on rooster tails and kastmasters.

Came back to the Afterbay a little after noon and got into a few more fish at the powerhouse. Flows were around 350cfs. It'll really turn on if they release some more water but it's hard to say considering Beardsley reservoir is on the low side. But all in all, it was a great day.
