Default Minersville 9/13

We hit Minersville on Sunday. It was great!

We started out with an orange triple teaser on one rod and a bugger on a fly rod. The triple teaser landed 4 fish before we decided to toss another spinning rod out and bring in the bugger (no hits. ). We then tried a purple needle fish. The triple teaser had another 3 fish, so we bailed on the needle fish and put out a second triple teaser (red). Then both rods started catching fish. It was a red / orange triple teaser day.

The kids boated over a dozen rainbows between 16 - 20". All fish are FAT. (puking up plankton). We lost another 6-7 fish -- they fight HARD! The kids had a blast playing them, and watching the acrobatics. It was fun.

The water is low. The lake is only about 15' deep right now. But the fish looked like they are handling it fine - only 1 had any sores at all. I think they're going to make it through this summer without much loss.

Now we just need some precipitation this winter...

Thanks for the report. It sounds like you and the kids had fun.

It's good to hear the fish are in good shape.

With the water that low is it murky?

I fished with your dad in the fall several years ago when the water was low and we did not do well with flies either.

I don't know if you call the water "murky" or just "green". It looks green to me.

But it doesn't foul up your flies / lures.

I guess I should have asked how far you think you can see in the water instead of murky. I know that because of all the wind Minersville gets, and with the water level low, that it stirs things up.

Thanks!

a couple feet. It wasn't real bad. But I have to wonder if that's why the bright orange / red lures were working better than my dark colored buggers?

of course, we haven't had a ton of wind for the last few days either.

It's nice to see someone still using the good old reliable triple teaser.

Those things have been around longer than I have and that is a long time.

It just goes to show you that you don't need the latest hot number to catch fish.

triple teaser, needle fish, and flat fish are my "go-to" choices when trolling for trout. Well, that is if I'm not dragging a wooly bugger already!
