Tom along with his brother Matt booked a morning trip on the river below the 21 bridge. They were on the river Saturday and had a tough time getting any action at all. Tom wanted to catch at least 1 crappie, mostly because he has never caught one. The bite started really slow fishing shoreline trees so we looked for submerged timber. Dead rods and and hand held rods with a plain hook baited with a fat-head minnow worked best. We finished with 16 crappies (Tom was elated), 8 walleyes, all "shorties", 5 perch, and 6 rock bass, and 1 punkinseed. 

Keep a tight line!!!

The end is near!

Our grand kids will be coming for a visit for the up-coming holidays and usually want a fish fry during their stay, so Kay and I went out on Monday and poked around some trees on the river and back-water areas below the Hwy. 21 bridge. We boated over 50 crappies, blue gills, and walleyes. We kept 16 blue gills, and 15 crappies. No big slabs, but nice enough to fillet.

Keep a tight line!!!

hit the dam this afternoon - on at 1:30 off at 6:30 - slow.  Marked some fish but not a ton.  Not many boats out today.  Fished all over right by the dam.  Caught 4 walleye under 12" and one nice 22" walleye.  Only saw a couple other small ones caught.  Water at dam was calm - no shutes open. Nice to be out.  Tight lines - Sully

Rich and Tracy from St Louis booked a morning trip on "The Rock" for today. They purchased a home on the river and wanted to find a few spots from the trestle up. we started out off the channel edge in a 10 foot depression with dead rods and jigs tipped with fat-heads. Only had a few bites and boated 1 nice northern. Headed up river above between Ospry landing and the dam working shorelines and trees. Ended the morning with the 1 northern, 18 crappies, 8 blue gills, 5 walleyes, and 1 catfish. 

Keep a tight line!!!

Took my youngest boy and a friend out this afternoon. Started jigging below the dam and moved south casting brush along both east and west shorelines. Fishing was tough and the current was fast. This spillway was open and current pushed us around 2.5 mph if we just drifted. Managed 1 small walleye, 2 big white bass and a big Smallie. There was a ton of Algae floating and if you werent moving your line, it would build up on your line and jig.

Great day to be on the water. Water temps were around 63. Fishing should get better with cooler temps in the forecast but current may remain fast with all the rain coming this weekend.

Does anyone know when the dock will be pulled at Adams County launch off 21? How about the bait shop launch below the dam?

FYI, they pulled the dock at May's Point launch (Castle Rock lake SW of the trestle bridge) this morning. Why they're pulling them this early is beyond me.
