Thanks for the heads up. Can't wait to get out there tomorrow. I have power bait but also hoping to catch some off of my spoons.

Anyone know the keep limit off the top of their head?

I believe you are correct.  I've seen poachers hitting Belleau Lake all week for trout already, even with the gates closed and clearly marked.

I believe this Saturday is the first weekend for Fall Trout correct?  Anyone else going out?

Salt creek and main pool were hot. Square bills and whopper plopper. 6 total fish this evening. Bass were bigger than usual, all about 2.5- 3 lbs. also got a nice Muskie. Special thanks to the gentleman that helped me net this fish. Water temp was probably safe for Muskie today and the important thing was that the fish never touched the ground. Really should bring a proper net if fishing for Muskie. I’ve learned the hard way in the past.

Fishing Report June 5th. Windy with a few showers. We hit about a dozen Bass and missed a bunch in 8 hrs..... Last week on Tuesday hit about a dozen in 2 hours and missed about 20(hit and run). Drop baits worked the best. Nothing huge but decent adolescent Bass
