Started up lake in the dark and ran when the light came. I stopped and checked several spots along the way and found nothing. I started trolling at Beaver Dam and headed up to Lynville.
15th - I saw a few fish but no schools. 18th - I saw fewer fish. Today I saw zilch. Its like they all disappeared.
18th I made it all to way to the flats near Hardy. The bait was flipping but I saw nothing chasing. Casting only got me some good practice. Today I went past the Hardy bridge to the first holes in the river. I was only marking small fish but I cast and jigged anyway. No bites. Each day on the way back I would check spots and troll some with no results. No breakers ever. Three days, 27 hours of fishing got me one 17" early on the 18th at Beaverdam. Good thing I like to fish or this would be disheartening. It can only get better. Later Joel
