Fishing report for 3-24-13

"What happened to spring"


What happened to spring? I thought March brought warm days. We are still waking up to temps below zero and the days are not getting warm niether. OK, enough of my whining lets get to the report. Last week we averaged 2 larger fish a day, the days we mixed up large and small fish we caught good numbers of small ones and a couple larger ones. The fish we were catching were in 50-60 feet of water. Berkely 'Gulp" saltwater shrimp, the Havoc tubes and 4" power minnows seemed to get the most bites. The rainbows and browns are working the shorelines and hitting small maribou's and soft plastics. The pump canal continues to produce lots of rainbows with ice jigs under a bobber, spawn sacs or crawlers drifted along the bottom. The rainbows on Grand lake are very easy to catch right now, the CPW just put 8000 catchables in. Last week we had our "kids day" every kid caught at least 2 or 3. This year the kids ages were between 3 and 6 years old. The ice is still over 15" thick with no signs of going away.
