This weekend, son and I were able to don waders and walk the river in spots below Waterford dam for probably the last time this year.  Used only jigs and twister tails.  Caught and released 6 carp, 1 6# catfish, and 4 small gars.  Water clear and cold.  Fished for one to two hours in afternoon before cold hands and the thought of hot coffee brought us in.  No ice on river.  Small ice floes coming over dam from Tichigan.

Last summer / possibly late spring several thousand smallies were released in Tichigan - Bridge Street if I recall.  

I don’t remember who stocked them though, I want to say the DNR, but I may be mistaken on that. 

Smallies above the Waterford Dam are present, but not common.

I will say that in the past I have caught Smallies in higher numbers in the Fall in the river, but they were all 9 inches - nothing of any size - but was nice to see them.

Snorkel, if you would like to make a donation may I suggest that you stop at Chances Restaurant December 6th around 6:45-7:15.  Ask for Terry or Tom with Pishtaka. Tom is the treasurer and he will buy you a drink as our thanks.

Snorkel.     I hear it’s fair in the river above the dam. I’ve only caught 3 in the lake in the last30 yrs. Last yr. I caught 1 that was 18.5” and this yr. a 12”er and 1 around 17”.  Not many for the hours that I put in.    CARPIO

Bullman,

Do you guys have a paypal account or something were we could send a donation?  I wouldn't go to the banquet but would for sure kick in a donation that might help improve the fishery.

Cactus,


always the the first Wednesday in April.  Tickets are available at Chances approximately one month prior.  We can seat a little over 200 and have been selling out the past few years. This is run like many other banquets. Three or four gun boards, silent auction, live auction as well as special events and walk around guns. I will try and post something when we start selling tickets.  We can always use donations to be used in the auctions to raise funds.

Snorkel,  we have been stocking them between the dams.  We are just starting to split the release above the Waterford dam.  We raise funds for supporting this through a banquet held the first Wednesday in April at the Cotton Exchange.  Fun time at the event.  Normally many guns awarded.  Glad to hear that some have survived the draw down.

Nice, did you release them between the dams?

That's seems like a good cause, do you guys take any donations?
