Expect Better Trout Action With Cooler Weather
The weather is cooling down in the high country and anglers can expect improving rainbow, brown and mackinaw action at Caples, Silver and Lower Bear River Lakes.
“One of the locals up here in Kirkwood braved the cold this morning and hooked a 2 lb rainbow trout,” reported Dave at Caples Lake Resort. “Nick Burruel was fishing a worm near the spillway at sunrise floating when he caught this monster.”
“For those willing to brave the cooler temperatures that fall brings our way, the fishing is some of the best of the season,” he noted.
Dan Foley and his 2 boys, Seth and Caleb. were trolling Power Bait “Mice Tails” on the surface near Woods Creek inlet when they caught seven rainbows. The two largest fish weighed 2 pounds each
Guest Brandon Burrell and his dad were trolling in the middle of the lake with worms and flashers when they hooked eight beautiful rainbows up to 3 pounds.
“Fishing is very slow now,” reported Jim Stewart at the Bear River Lake Resort in Pioneer, “with the exception of some 8 to 10 inch rainbows that anglers are caching off the bank on PowerBait, crawlers and salmon eggs. The fishing should improve as the lake turns over and the trout begin to feed.”Back To Reports
