I recently was going thru the fishing handbook you get, trying to see what we can do in are spare time. I noticed the early trout season. I have never went this early for trout before but figured why not, try it out. I called my buddy Matt told him about it and we decided to go. Now in this early season you need to look up what places you are allowed to fish. Mostly its just lakes and dams, so I looked and we have two. We have twin lakes and keystone lake not to far from us. We decided to hit keystone, which we like to call in snagstone cause you get a lot of them there lol.
We went back a couple days later and hit the spot he caught that one. It was a cold day and with the wind to help it out. So the poles went in with excitement to try to catch more. Not long matt got a hit on his line, after a few of them it was fish on, first strike. So thru out the day he continue getting hits while I struggled for one. At the end of our fishing day he ended up catching his limit. It was a good day, cause we (he) caught some fish that day. So off for home to hit the place the next day, but a new spot.
We set out for the same lake but a different spot that Matt said was a good spot. The poles went in again with him more excited that I was, cause I have not caught one yet this year. It was a little warmer that day and sunny which helped out a lot. Matt didn’t have to wait to long they started hitting is lines. Then I got a hit and at the same time we pole grabbed the poles and jerked. At the same time it was fish on, first strike. Thats the first time we caught one each at the same time, so i figured it was going to be a good day for me. Wrong again, Matt limited again today and that one was the only one I caught. Matt even pulled out a very nice brook trout. Cant figure it out, using the same bait and the same location. I think they hate me lol. So off for home to come out another day which was suppose to be nice, yeah right
Today we had to make a stop at best buy to get our games we pre-ordered so we decided to hit another lake, twin lakes. I thought a new lake a new chance. WRONG for both of us, nothing at all, barely even a hit. so we left to get our games and go back to the spot in keystone. The poles went in the water, the wind was blowing, and it was cold again. Matt didnt wait long again to get a bite. After that I started to get hits. It was looking like a good day and it turned out pretty good. Matt caught two, but one to small for us to really want. I did manage to catch two rainbows, one around 12 inches, the other a 19 inch rainbow. I finally made up for those last few days of catching nothing and sitting around. So the fishing day was over and we plan on going back out here very soon, with hopefully a little more sun and a little less wind. The whole time we were fishing there, he used powerbait and a nightcrawler. They are loving that combo right now and I followed quickly when Matt found that out, we like to call it the Scout Bait….
