I made another trip to my favorite lake for some morning fishing. Got there around 830am and left around 130 with my limit. Fished mainly with night crawlers which to seem to work great floated on top. I know some of you might be getting tired of seeing Applegate Lake so often on here, hopefully that will change soon. I plan on fishing the Upper Rogue and Applegate rivers for some winter steelhead reall soon. Also i plan on fishing Lake Selmac for the first time in a week or two so look forward to that. I thank u all for stopping by my blog and reading my lousy reports but hey atleast i have pictures right?
Well this morning i woke up early and decided to goto my sanctuary for some trout fishing. On the way there i noticed quite a bit smoke. I guess there was a controlled burn over the weekend that got out of control. I got some pictures of the fire on my way out. Also got pictures of the fish and a couple of the areas i was fishing by.
French Gulch boat ramp.
Last monday i went to applegate once again. It was kinda shitty out with rain coming and going. I fished right by the french gulch boat ramp with worms and powerbait. Got my limit and smoked them a day or two later.
I decided to park on the road and walk down to the lake bad idea LOL
the last shot is a bit blurry but it was the only picture i got of my fish from this day oh well 😀
So on saturday before playoffs started i decided to go get my limit of trout at my favorite lake. With 2 rods i got my limit in 3-4 hours which wasnt bad. The bite was on real good at first but died off as the sun started to break through the clouds. My bait of the day was worms and i fished off the dam because the rocks were dry. Weather was awesome no wind or rain for the first few hours then and it started to get windy right before i caught my final trout.
Well i made it to the local lake for some evening trout fishing. I had a good time, plenty of bites but only one caught. The only downside was i fished the opposite side of the lake were i drove through lots of mud. and since it was so muddy i only fished one rod. Ill end it with the best part of the post the pictures 😀
Went out to Applegate Lake again, didnt do as well as last time but still had some fun. I caught 2 small rainbows, both were released, had more bites than fish. The weather was kinda crappy with rain 90% of the time, but at least there was no wind.
Well today i went fishing for the first time of the new year, after making a quick stop to buy my license and 2 rod permit at sportsmans wharehouse i was off to beautiful Applegate Res. The lake is filling up but its still really low, i fished on the dam so i wouldnt get all muddy. I had real good luck with night crawlers that i found after the rain the other night. All my fish were caught with the worms, and i had some bites on power eggs with powerbait, and a green crappie jig. I lost track of how many i caught buy my best guess would be 15, most of them being cookie cutters. I kept one that was 13 inches and fat. Also i found plano tackle box floating that was a nice bonus . Now ill post the pictures. Enjoy.
