Loon Lake Cools, Rainbow Bite Improves
The surface temperature at Loon Lake cooled by four degrees and anglers are seeing an uptick in trout action there.
“The surface water temperature is sitting at 68 degrees,” said Dale Daneman of Dale’s Foothill Fishing, “and that was enough to improve the bite. It’s still not limit action, but we are seeing better numbers. Sep’s sidekicks and a brown grub or a nightcrawler are the best bets now.”
“Union Valley kokes are still tough,” said Ken Mathis at Ken’s Custom Tackle. “But we are finding scattered action in deep water. Most anglers are seeing 2-3 fish for their efforts and working 55-75 feet deep with orange or red spinners and my Code Blue dodger.”
Mackinaw continue to pick up the slack and putting in time will find mack limits for most. “The Best action is 125-165 feet over water 200 feet deep and I am using glow dodgers and glow flutter spoons. The biggest mack this past week I have seen is a nice sixteen pounder,” he disclosed.
“French Meadows anglers should work Needlefish for their trout catches,” reported John Wadden at Will Fish Bait and Tackle. “A #2 Needlefish in firetiger or bikini is all you need – tip it with a nightcrawler and lead it with a chrome dodger and anglers will find the fish.”Back To Reports
