Early this morning I got an email from a friend (Rich) that said he was heading out to the Camanche Trout Pond. I figured I'd surprise him and show up since I was going out that way anyhow.
After a couple stops in town, I got out to the Trout Pond around 9 something. There were a few people fishing on the side we usually fish on, but the trailer side, can you say "Combat Fishing"?
|The trailer side|
I had two rods out with rainbow Power Bait for the couple hours I was there. Some with garlic, anise, and sweet corn, but nothing the fish wanted. None of the people on our side caught anything. Rumor had it that the people down at the end were catching them left and right with garlic Power
Bait although I didn't see anyone catching anything. Maybe someone was trying to get us all to move down there.
Rich didn't show, but his son Mark did. Mark said that Rich was going to come out but feared the Trout Pond would be crowded and he didn't feel like fighting the mob. Had a good chat with Mark and his girl friend and then headed for the North Shore Day use area. Couldn't be any worse than the pond.
There is a specific spot I like to fish on the North Shore where I usually do well. That spot is where my chair is in the picture below.

So I took one more picture of how nice the lake looked and headed home.

Maybe next time.
