OCTOBER 2019

FISHING REPORT AND NEWS

Monday, October 14th - Well, I sure had the wrong date on my last report. I had posted September 5th instead of October! Apologies for the confusion. Fishing is just plain odd this fall so far. It must be because the world is going to end in 12 years. Since that is going to happen, I better get the dates right on my fishing reports. (that is sarcasm, in case I just gave you Chicken Little Fever).

Fishing is quite at the odds everywhere right now. There just hasn't been enough rain or cooler temps to stir up a big run. It's been crazy for brown trout the last three weeks. There was a guy Friday who caught a 25 pound brown off the pier in Olcott. At the same time, Burt Dam began to rock and roll with plenty of fishermen. The 300 fish in the hole had 200 anglers catching and recatching them over and over. It made for a lot of extremely tired fish. The dam was on and off today. Some did okay, some didn't. One guy got smacked in the back of the head with someone's bobber. It's been like survival of the fittest down there this holiday weekend. Some got a few kings in Eighteen Mile today. They are throwing everything out there they can. It's been kind of crazy to give accurate reports. It's on and off all over the place. Wednesday's rain might bring on something good. I saw pics today one guy caught two silver kings at the dam. The water isn't cold enough yet and with all the north and east winds, fish are still out there in the lake. When the lake wasn't rolling, fishing offshore in 400 to 500 fow was actually good. Orange and pinks have been hot colors at the dam. I'll get you a report after Wednesday's rain and let you know what is up. Have a great day.

We are open here at the Boat Doctors seven days a week and have a great stock of everything you need for fishing and boating. If you thought we were just a place that fixes boats, you are going to be surprised. We hear it every day. We aren't Cabela's, but we have a fully stocked tackle shop and marine store . Stop by and see us. We've been here 23 years!
