A friend of mine and I decided to target some whitefish at vernita. First time targeting these fish so researched from past posts about what gear to use. We chose egg fly patterns tipped with fake soft eggs and whitefish flies tipped with gulp maggots. Egg fly pattern caught all the fish. We drifted from whitefish island to the power lines and consistently hooked up into fish. The feel of the bite is very soft. Caught fish in the 17 to 23 fow. Decided to smoke them cuz I heard they were pretty good. Processing these fish takes some time cuz they do have quite a bit of bones near the upper half of the fillet. They are tasty fish smoked and we were very surprised that they are an under fished and under appreciated species.
