Went out 4-25-11 from 5:30 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. at the big dam today at shoto. Caught two steelies drifting spawn. No bobber, just two small splitshots sinkers with hook drifting in current. Lots of suckers in now but there is alot of steelies too. Saw a bunch of them jumping at dam.

Rivers are really flowing hard now.

Figure8out, not all fish that come up spawn. Immature fish will come back to feed when conditions are right. Arlee eggs tend to be smaller than the steelhead. If the egg skeins were like the size of "cream of wheat" it's a fish that won't spawn for a year or 2. This happens in winter all the time.

Yeah, it looked footballish,not a 100 % on strains (2nd year after em')eggs definately under developed so thats why im curious do the arlees spawn last , is that still considered to young to spawn?

figure8out, could have been an arlee with spawn. they run considerably smaller for the most part. They look a lot like the 2-5lb footbal browns caught off the pier/trolling in close in the spring, except they are rainbows. Good luck out there for those still poundin!

Water was high and muddy yesterday with lots of suckers, I cannot imagine it after all that rain last night and today. I think the run is nearing an end Crying

figure, it would probably work, but not as good as a fully mature one. That fish was probably 2 years old (total guess), and usually 3 is when they are more mature.

Spent a few hours at Mishicot dam today; not a thing doing and I was the only one there for most of the morning. Water was very high (small island still underwater). Saw them jumping, but they weren't hungry. Also went to Shoto, and was slow as well.

just wondering how the water levels are from all the rain we got on Sunday and if people think that it would be worth making the drive from Appleton on Saturday. And do people think if we get the rain on Friday that it will make the water rise a lot to make it unfishable thanks and tight lines Big Smile
