Fishing Adventures

Thursday at Applegate

Well i had this all wrote out then something happend and the draft wasnt saved so ill make this short and sweet. Thursday i had the urge to fish im sure you know what im talking about, so i decided to goto my favorite little area even though the weather man said it wasnt gonna be nice out. I first fished the Applegate River not too far above historic Mckee Bridge, the river opened to trout fishing last saturday so i thought id give it a shot. The spot i was fishing had quite a few trees along the shore and i managed to hook one with my panther martin, after that i didnt stay for much longer, i did pack out a bunch of stuff from there though about 20 cents in deposit, a raft ore, 1 flip flop, 1 ford hub cap, and a bunch of beer caps. I then went up to the lake, i fished the back end with a variety spinners i caught about 12 rainbow trout keeping 4. A few of the ones i released i wouldnt of mind keeping but they some how manged to get free right at shore, the biggest was about 15 inches, and the rest ranged from 11-13 inches and almost all were fatties. I was using my 4’6 Ultra Light rod and some of these little trout were peeling my four pound line and most were bending my rod pretty good. I fished off the dam before i left to try to get the fifth and final trout but by then it was quite rainy. Had a great day of fishing at a great place. Thanks for reading and tight lines!

The other side of the river looks like it might be nice to fish from, but i think its private property

  1. Looks like a damp day. You can see the rain on the lake. I know it was raining down here all day Thursday. Lake looks full though. Should be a good year of fishing if summer ever comes.
