Fished both Saturday and Sunday midday this weekend. Most of the time was spent fishing the Rotary Park white railing and its rocks while using only one bait and presentation, freshly dead small alewives that were cast out and then bounced back along bottom.
Saturday went 2 for 3 with the brown trout, catching a 13 and 20 incher and losing another about 20 inches. On Sunday ( yesterday ) I didn't have any brown trout encounters but I did have a carp take off with the alewife. This fish measured 32 inches and took forever to bring to the net.
About an hour yesterday was spent checking out the power plant discharge. The Fishermen's Park entrance has been closed off due to the construction but the area is still accessible via the west slip. Only two bites and one hook-up were experienced although the water sure looked promising to begin with. The hook-up turned out to be a chunky, 9 inch, orange finned Arlee rainbow that I thought was a brook trout when I first saw it in the water.
Belated report: Fished Saturday midday May 25th mostly using the small dead alewives for bait. There were no signs of trout but I did go 3 for 4 with the carp. All were about the same size and all were pregnant. Time was taken to measure 2 of the 3 carp caught. They had measurements of 31 and 31 1/2 inches. Guesstimate weights of over 20 pounds were made at the time of their nettings. ( It sure felt like they were over 20 lbs. ) Googling on the internet suggests that they were pushing 15 pounds tops.
