Launched at 8am and fished until 1:30ish. Went downstream and started with flies and plugs. Hooked up on a plug after about 30mins but was a native so released in the net. Couldn't buy a bite after that, so started changing offerings, and with no success, decided to move further downstream.

Got around to trying an orange Kekeda and that produced a nice 2lb, 3oz fin clipped 'bow. Worked the rest of that shoreline without a bite so turned around and trolled back toward the spot that produced the keeper. I noted a very specific underwater feature at that spot so tried to find it again, downside is the shoreline structure looks the same for a couple miles. Persevered, and after several "I think this was the spot" moments, I trolled over the same unique underwater structure, 50', 100', 150', 200' past and no takedown so I turned boat to open water to start stowing gear. I stepped out of the nice warm cabin and fish on! After short but feisty battle, I netted another decent 2lb clipped bow.

It was slow, but we persevered and had a couple nice 'bows for our efforts. Both came on an orange Kekeda tipped with crawlers. Surface temps were 39.6°, it was a cozy 62° with the heat on inside, and we enjoyed a week day on the water. :-)

Glad to hear you got out and got some good eating fish. Sure seems like the rainbow are scattered this winter.

Thanks for the report! Was heading that way Friday but seeing the weather forecast I’m holding up and staying warm.
