Recommended Posts

Heading to White Water this Thursday... plan on using cranks, jigs, crawler, power bait... whatever so the kids can catch some...

Any particular ideas ???

Also what do you guys think about selective ahrvest there ??? Are these all stocked, is there natural production ???

Last ??? do they clip the adipose fin of hatchery fish ???

Selective harvest is kinda tough when bait fishing, trout tend to swallow bait. I flyfish but I used to spin fish and if you would like your kids to catch some eatin fish, catch some grasshoppers(which is fun for kids too).

I flyfish now beacause bait fishing just got to be way to easy and is not at all Catch and Realease friendly.

The white water area is stocked with rainbows BUT there natural repoduction of browns.

As far as clipping fins, I don't think so but its pretty safe to say any rainbow you catch is stocked.

Good Luck and Tight lines!

Yea thats why I asked about natural reproduction... with power abit in particular they get it pretty deep...

With stocking... not big deal to harvest... with natural a bit different...

WALLEYE, DEPENDS ON THE AGE OF THE KIDS. BAIT (WORMS) IS THE BEST WITH YOUNGER KIDS BUT THE GRASSHOPPER IDEA IS A GREAT ONE ANOTHER ONE IS CRICKETS. I WAS GOING TO TRY THIS, IS CATCH A BUNCH OF GRASSHOPPERS AND CRICKETS ANTHING THAT HAS THE HARD SKELETON, AND FREEZE THEM. THEN SUPER GLUE THEM TO SMALL HOOKS, I'D USE THEM MAINLY ON A FLYROD BUT YOU'D THINK YOU COULD USE THEM JUST LIKE A WORM. NOW I KNOW THAT A FROZEN HOPPER IS NOTHING LIKE THE ONES THAT ARE ALIVE, BUT IF YOU'VE TRIED CASTING A HOPPER YOU TEND TO USE ABOUT 3 PER ONE CAST ON THE WATER. IF FROZEN AND GLUED YOU'D NEVER LOSE THEM.
WITH OLDER KIDS THAT CAN HANDLE A FISHING ROD SMALL SPINNERS AND RAPALAS WORK REAL WELL, PLUS IT GIVES THEM A CHANCE TO PRACTICE CASTING.
GOOD LUCK...

tstephens, now you are supergluing bait to a hook, what next hucking sun dried minnows with bobber boy?? a good realistic hopper fly will take as many trout as your super glued bait on a hook. but anyway good luck...

I never had too much trouble with the grasshoppers coming off. What you do is hold the hopper belly side up, run the hook under the chest plate starting at the neck. All the hook shank gets covered, like putting on a jig body. The trout like em fresh though. The only thing about hoppers is that they like to spit some brown stuff like tobbaco spit on your fingers when putting them on. eeewww! LOL

That's more like it!

I bet you two("smells" , "TSEPEHENS") would enjoy fishing together and probably learn a lot from each other!

My money's on Smells. Hopper flies work very well when fished correctly. Super glue? Bait dunking is for boats wink.gif
