This past week was one of the biggest trout onslaughts I have seen in awhile!! Sam Kemp of Roseville hooked a monster 11 lb. 8 oz. trout trolling with flashers and a worm just off the beach. The next day another Roseville resident, Brent Agee caught an 11 lb. 9 oz. trout on a Rapala trolling in the channel approx. 23′ down. Josh also trolled a Rapala and hooked a 9 lb. Rainbow.
We will continue to plant twice a week for the next three weeks. Bill & Rowland Coffman came back and tried their luck again this week with Bill’s wife Yvonne. Together they caught a limit of trout each trolling with Shasta Tackle and their biggest weighed 7 lb. 4 oz.
