Well Summer is almost over and the time of year when many of you like to get out fishing is fast approaching. We finished off our lake season with some great pike, all I can say is that if you have not tried it with us you should. The picture you see here is a 42′ long and 17″ around monster we picked up as the last fish of the day. Between coaching this young fisherman, staying out of the reeds and keeping the waves from coming over the bow it was a busy time in my boat.
We are now back on the river after a very long wait, longest in my 18 years of guiding but we are so happy to be back on it. The fishing has been not bad and we are burning up bait on the many goldeye in the river. Some very nice ones being caught as well as some very healthy walleye. Throw in pike, sauger and a very fat sucker and you have a very nice mixture. The icing on the cake has to be catching our third Brown Trout in the last two years. Crazy to go 16 years and never catching any and then get three in less then a year. This may be a great brown fishery one day.
We are pleased to be collecting walleye data for the SRD this year and we are getting our guests involved with it as well. It gives them a chance to be part of helping make sure that the right data is being collected for our fishing future. So far our guests have enjoyed being part of the project.
September and October dates are filling up. The following dates are still open in Sept. They are the 4-6th, 10,11,13,17,19,24-26th and 30th. In October there are more open dates but the 3,6,9,11,12,15,19,20 are booked up so far. You can call us to see if there are any single boats available but so far as large groups we only have the dates posted as open.
Hope that helps with the latest update and we look forward to seeing you on the water this Fall.
