Yesterday I fished with a client from MN. With bass on our radar I headed to where I had success the other day way up in the Forks.
Our first spot was way up in the West Fork past the West Fork boat ramp. The water looked perfect, temperature was still 50 degrees with a little current. We fished a 150 yard bank where we caught 6-8 bass and lost a few big girls in just 45 minutes the other day. Today, casting our Tn-rigs, not sniff(what a humbling sport). Then we backed down to the next rocky bank and caught 2 decent bass on Tn-rigs(one keeper and one just short).
The next few hours we jump around on several of the banks we caught fish the other day and only caught one more! I switched between tn-rig, red deep crank, minnow 3.3(red craw)…nothing seemed to work.
Half way through the day we moved back into Spring Creek. We fished for one hour and had 0 bites there. I know they were back there with the water clear and 54 degrees, but I could not get them to hit anything.
Lastly we moved to Stewart Creek and finally got some action. We started near the back boat ramp, fishing only to the rip rap. We caught 6-8 back there on
tn-rigs and Minnow 3.3 Red Craw and Minnow 3.3 Craw. All the fish were relating to rocks on the bank and isolated in the channel. Our biggest was almost 5lbs caught on a 3.3 Craw in 2ft of water.

We headed to the marina with a couple to be proud of, but it was a tough day. I thought we would have had more bites with the warmer air temp, water at 50 degrees and front moving in. Wednesday and Thursday I’ll be crappie fishing and then Friday and Saturday(tournament) I’ll be bass fishing!!!!
