Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

Boy has this forum been quite. Hope everybody is too busy fishing to post. Anyways, made down to the Vermilion last Saturday. Action was fast a furious right away. Caught a 16.5" and 21" brown just before 7AM. Nothing after that. Had a slight mishap while drudging along the river bank. I fell into a rut and thought I'd never get up again. Twisted my back up pretty good and ended up cutting my outing a little short mad.gif. I should be back in action by next weekend. Water level is very low but suprisingly very cold. Because of the low water conditions, I was able to retrive a couple of raps that I had lost earlier this spring.
While fishing, I caught an unusual amount of chubs. They were very aggresive as I was using a #11 rapala and some of the chubs I was catching were the same size as the rap. It's no wonder the trout get so large in this river with all of the chubs that available.

I was at Whitewater over the weekend and did pretty good. The river was super low and the trout were all in the deeper holes. Duck weed cover much of the river, so that made it harder to catch fish.

Best times were very early in the morning and very late in the day. Best color of rapala was a natural and black and silver.

Biggest trout of the weekend was a 16 inch brown. Most of the trout ran between 6 to 12 inches.

We did catch 2 rainbows 12 incher and a 14 incher. Both were not freshly stocked rainbows, since they showed no signs of being just stocked.

    • Wow, I didn’t realize the lake was under that intense of pressure. I suppose I will try elsewhere if most of the trout have been taken out. Thanks for the advice! 
    • ...LOL, I did it again on Sunday as well. I used 21-40 ct shrimp and grilled up some chicken breast ahead of time that were added before the pan went on the grill.... pretty spot on!
    • Thanks for coming back with a review. They look like they should work well but I'm wondering if they allow slack in the line at the trip and let the fish off the hook?  I use dipsy's and a few other divers for deep trolling Walleye's in late summer.  Fun stuff when their out there. 🙂
    • All the little Trout ponds around the cities get hit like this on opener. More or less a "Put and take" fishery.  
    • Wow that is some high density fishing pressure!!!
    • This is a couple years old but I happened to stumble on it again today and I’m not really a big fan of the slide divers myself after giving them a shot. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but they seem more of a hassle than just the plain old, but effective, Dipsy diver     
    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
