Incredible trout catches this week, the biggest one was 8 lbs. on a stringer brought up by Nancy Stapp & Madeln Baker. They limited out and they trolled the east side either on a Rapala or Needlefish, the guys didn’t stand a chance with this duo. Another lady angler from Marysville, Maggie Capitano hooked a 7 lb. 5 oz. bow on a Flicker Shad Lure. Little Mykala outdid her brother Dylan with her huge trout weighing in at 6 lb. 4 oz. Regina caught a 3 lb. 8 oz. Rainbow and made her honey doo hold up his minnow looking trout to make hers look bigger!!! Angel Swan & Brandon trolled with worms on the east side and Angel’s big catch of the day included a hefty 7 pound Rainbow.
With our trout planting season in full swing, the results are undeniably tremendous and will continue to get even better as we receive more plants and start to release some of the net pens beginning mid March.
Ricardo Gomez & Giovanni caught their first big trout of this year, a 6 lb. 4 oz. Rainbow and with the help of little Victoria they landed a few others as well on PowerBait from the beach.
