: 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.
I was out on the river at Bowman's island ( Is that right at the hatchery?) and got skunked, of course that's not very hard to do since I am new to the sport
The water was crystal clear and the trout were no where to be seen.
There were several other anglers out there also and they only had little success but it looked to me as though they may have been stockers also.
