Bank Anglers Score Rainbows And Browns At French Meadows

Written By: Garry Erck, September 2, 2014
Species: Trout
Location: Loon Lake, French Meadows Reservoir, Stumpy Meadows Lake, Jenkinson Reservoir,

(Riverton) “French Meadows and Hell Hole are both low and launching is tough for all but smaller boats,” reported Mike Cunningham at Will Fish Bait and Tackle. “If you can get in, anglers are doing decently.”

French Meadows is offering up some action for bank anglers or trollers working Rapalas, but PowerBait off the bank is probably a better bet. Hell Hole is experiencing a pretty good mack bite right now for anglers jigging 1-2 ounce jigs at the dam – the better mack concentration has been at ninety feet deep.”

“Stumpy Meadows is low,” said Tug Keller at Georgetown Ace Hardware. “There is no boat launching available, but bank action is OK with folks seeing 1-3 fish per rod. Better areas have been the dam or the backside inlet – most are catching and releasing as trout at Stumpy have a pretty heavy copepod issue right now.”

“Planter action at Jenkinson Lake is pretty decent,” reported Sara at Sly Park Resort. “The second dam is holding pretty good for bank anglers tossing Powerbait. A nice two pound mackinaw was caught on a Flutter Spoon by Charlie Cruz.”

Loon Lake stands at 71%, Union Valley is at 78% capacity, and Ice House is at 100%.
