I talked to a guy at the Steel Bridge who said he had caught about 30 on 11/2 in an hour and a half but I saw none and heard of none being caught at the Steel Bridge on 11/3.

Last year the Ami fished well in the first few of weeks of the DH season. So what is happening to the Ami this year? Is the water too warm for fish to be active? It felt cold enough but I did not measure the surface temp. Were fewer fish stocked this year? Will there be a second stocking on the Ami in November?

Lots of mysteries. What do you all think?

Don't know what to say. Our chapter personally stocked 800 'bows and bookies at 53 bridge and 900 at Steele bridge on Wednesday. I guess they just weren't ready to eat yet. They're there.

Wink SH Stocker Diary

Dear Diary: Today my raceways buddies and I went for a truck ride and then like nobody wanted us they dumped us here in this place that is kinda like our raceway, but not as consistent. Guess I will just hang out here with my buds for now.

Day Two: Still hanging here with my buddies just like the old days but people keep throwing these little pieces of stuff in the water - have no clue what it is.

Day Three: The pellet truck has not come by for three days and we are all getting a little hungry. Leroy thought he would try one of those things people throw in the water - well that's how the pellet truck does - and all of a sudden his whole body was yanked right out of the water! He came back but was quite shaken by the experience and sulked on the bottom the rest of the day.

Day Four: Still not pellet truck but I smelled something that seemed like it might be good to eat right on the bottom of this new raceway. Not as tasty as a pellet, but not bad. Oh, and late yesterday this shadow shape flew over our new home and next thing we know there is a splash right where George was swimming! He never came back.

Day Five: Dear Diary this is my last entry for awhile. The shadow came back again and the people throwing stuff in the water were here all day. Worse, everyone else in the pod found out there was food in the water other than pellets but now there is nothing left to eat here. I have to move either up stream or down stream, find protection from the shadows and the people and have enough food. Saw a really cute girl trout earlier but she said she was not ready to pawn. Wonder what she has to sell ....... ?

They’re there and definitely eating Neal! Went down a few days ago and wore them out... then again, I’ve had quite of bit of experience on that water, so I guess I kinda have a leg up when it comes to fishing there haha!

I did pretty well on 11/3 at steel bridge just a bit after sun up. Somewhere around 19 in about 2 hours. One 16ish inch rainbow and a couple of pretty brookies in the mix. Alot of the rainbows were colored up better than you normally see a fresh stocker. The only thing they really wanted was a small red squirmy worm.

I moved down the 53 after that and only got 3 in an hour and called it quites.

Had a pretty good morning at Paces. Had 8 with a nice 14-15" bow. Also had a couple of browns. Decent start to DH season. Great to get out again, been a while. Eggs, Y2k and PT.
God bless,
Darryl

I hit paces Saturday afternoon for a partially rainy day. I worked my way up from the ramp to the bridge and caught 9 stocker bows and 1 holdover brown. No way he was just stocked, his fins we're perfect and he took off like a rocket when I pierced his lip!

Also saw one that had to have been 20+ inches. He slowly cruised into deep water and I couldn't locate him again. Anyone know if they stocked any donkeys this year?

Tight lines!

Went to Paces today for a couple hours before lunch. Walking to the water I noticed the dumpster was full of flies and smelled like dead fish. Pretty f'd up if you ask me. After shaking that off I managed this nice brown. But really what kind of scumbag is harvesting these fish right at the river during DH...
