Fished for trout from 7am on the west side. Weather was alright despite the rain report.

Fished a Carolina rig with 2 foot leader and a stopper bead about 2 feet up on the main line. Bait was red worm floated with a garlic marshmallow.

Got a big bite after only 10min in the water. But it spit it out.

After a bait change and an hour later got another big bite. Landed a flathead catfish about 20in. Fat one. Let it go back to its business. (The marshmallow fell off and the worm sunk down. Catfish picked it up instead of a trout. )

I'll try a longer rig to get above the weeds.

Anyone know how deep the reservoir is on the west side?
