We fished below Keller Ferry. Upon arrival there were only 2 rigs in the parking lot at 8:30. My friend Brian and I were dressed for the cold. But, the breeze would cut right through you. We managed 3 trout each and one Kokanee. Brian picked up the Koke with an orange, J-7 Rapala. The Koke was 18'' and the biggest Bow was 20''. The Bows were picked up with orange or pink flies and the Rapala. We used downriggers at 5-12 feet with 2 rods. We flat lined one rod and used a side winder on one. Our speed varied from 1.5 - 2.5. There were a few other fishin' fools out there. But, we didn't see any nets flying.
We had good roads to travel both to and from. Fog was very tiring to drive in getting there. I had concerns of de-icer getting on my new boat.
We saw deer, turkeys, ducks, geese and Bald eagles.
The one major glitch we had occurred at the launch. All 4 tires were frozen solid at the disc brakes! The trailer bucked, bunny hopped and slid all the way to the water! After that it was trouble free. I'll carry a small propane torch in the future.
It was good to be able to scratch that itch!
