The fishing slowed down this week for us a bit, the water became a little off-color making catching fish a challenge, pretty much have to hit them in the nose with it! Also, the river is still pretty cold too, so they aren’t very active. We have been gradually making our way further up river out of ice at both Vinegar and Spring Bar.
Downriver, Janet Martinez’s boats, Racks & Rods, got into some fish though with Rusty and Colt! Dola Maclead, Angela Bennett and Thelma Black all 3 landed hatchery fish. Melissa Lanning and Lori Reche reeling in wild ones!
We had a few boats out and a few steelhead caught!
Shaylee Hugues fishing apart of Jennifer Ingraham’s group with Sam and Justin reeled in a little 23.5″ hatchery! Rochelle Fuquay fishing with Rose Brook’s group on Rusty & Colt’s boat from landed a wild one.
Over on Brenda Huston’s boat she caught a 25″ hatchery fish!
Taryn Smith, fishing with Yecora Daniel’s boat out with Brian and Paul reeled in 20.25″ hatchery fish!
Not a ton of fish today but a ton of fun with all of our groups of ladies!
We had a 4 boat crew of a bunch of girlfriends and they overtook Riggins with their laughs ad good times! One of the girls was even in the band that rocked out our live music at Seven Devils all weekend! We had 2 of them at Hammer Creek and 2 at Spring bar, no steelhead caught but a few trash fish and memories!
On upriver was an adventure of a day!
On Brook’s boat fishing with Sam and Justin, Bobbi Hall landed a whopper of a wild fish and they had themselves a very buzzing dayt
Annette Gilmore’s group was the fishiest of the day, but also had the biggest adventures! They were fishing on Rich and Tommy’s boat. Annette herself reeling in a 24″ hatchery. Tavia Thompson landed 2 hatchery fish, putting her into 4th Place Most Fish! Jo Farrish reeled in a nice wild one! They then got stuck behind some ice that came out! So, they had to grab what they wanted to pack out with them and they had a straight up climb from the boat to the river trail. After not quite a mile hike on the river trail, Sam’s boat was on the other side of the ice to pick them all up to take them back to the ramp. Thanks for really gritting it out ladies! What a day and memories to have!
Luckily the ice was gone in the morning, and Sam was able to take Rich right up to this boat and get to fishing! Sharon Adams fishing with Sam and Justin landed a 21.5″ hatchery fish. Down at Spring Bar, Liz Laidig with Camri Hughes boat reeled in a pretty wild one!
Lori Stewart on Liz Thiel’s boat landed a wild fish with Rich and Paul. And over on Shelly Jenkin’s boat Hailey Knight reeled in a hatchery fish with Sam and Justin!
Well, we were supposed to have two boats out today but Mother Nature had other plans! We got to Vinegar and the boats were completely iced up and iced in. The guys had to work VERY hard to get them out. We hoped to maybe be able to bring them down to Spring Bar at least to fish but everything was slushed up. The boats were frozen up and we had to take them home to thaw out! Thank you for being so understanding ladies! We were able to get both groups rescheduled or taken care of to get on the water again:) They also were able to see some bighorn sheep on the way back to town! Check out some pictures!
