Well the planned trip I was looking forward too is somewhat of a bust. As luck would have it it started raining the morning we got up there and it rained for about 12hrs straight pretty much making the trout water sections of the river unwadable. So I decided that I would just come home this morning with my buddy and post pone my 10 day alone on the river trip till sometime next month. While it sucks that I had to postpone that, I guess you have to make the best of it and now I can look forward to that trip for another month until it happens.

We did make the best of the 2 days we were there at least. We decided to head about 35 miles down river to where the flow was more steady. No trout in that section since its warm water fishing, but we did get into a bunch of 12-14" smallmouth, some small pike, and a couple of pretty decent walleye all while stripping streamers on the spey rods which was fun.

Steve, I would personally be very happy with those catches, and call it a successful trip.

looks like a great day fishing! last weekend I put a keeper sturgeon in the boat at 48.5" plus caught 1 that was a little past 8' that broke the line when we were measuring it.

Good to hear that the sturgeon populations seem to be doing well. Probably best that the big one got away to breed again.
