Had to fish behind Buford Dam today because all the water down river was
thick with mud. The hatchery must have had a recent release because stockers
were everywhere. I saw several pods of at least 30 fish and one run that
must have had 50+ in it. Since they were all starving to death, they were
hitting just about everything. I caught them on Rapalas, spinners, jigs,
a black ant, a muddler minnow, and a woolly bugger. One particular place that
was excellent and didn't have a lot of pressure was the left side of the big
island. The pool that held the 50+ trout was at the upstream end of the island
just before the main channel goes under that big tree on the right.
All the pools down the left side of the island seem to be holding trout. I spooked
a lot, but caught a lot to.
