Then I sat for two hours changing colors of Power Bait, adding a scent here and there, and had I need to, would have had plenty of time to pick my nose. Yes, it was that exciting.
I don't think Caples has been planted since 2009 and I haven't caught anything since the one I caught last August 2nd, but I am an equal opportunity fisherman, so I gave it a shot.
Since I had so much time on my hands and everyone said keep taking pictures, here are a couple.

|Lots of fish|
Did I tell you they moved the road construction from the Bear River access road out to Highway 88? Yup, wait in line and follow the pilot car only this time there really was a pilot car. The wait was relatively short. I think 5 minutes was the max. No way to get around it, they're working 24/7.
Silver Lake, check in, and out to the rock. One line with Power Bait, one line with a crawler. First fish came at 5 minutes and the other 3 came in the next hour. All caught on Power Bait. The delicate part of this catching was being away from my red Coleman camping chair to put fish on the stringer and getting back to the chair before it was blown into the lake, again. I was successful with that. The old boy can move pretty quickly when necessary. I called it a day at Noon with four on the stringer. I could have hung out and caught the other one, but I had some chores to attend to at home.
That's it for today.
Good ol Silver lake! Great pics of caples!ReplyDelete
A lake that pretty should have some monster rainbows
I'm sure it does Bill, I just can't find them. Used to be, the place I fished was usually good for 4 or 5 one pound fish. Not lately though.Delete
That is a really pretty lake. Although not really a lake fisherman much nowadays, There was a time. Although I caught my fair share, I don't remember ever getting hits so quickly like you do. Maybe my worms were making faces and scaring the fish?ReplyDelete
You might find it easier, as you advance in Geezer age, to park and fish rather than walk and fish. You might try Power Bait. Could surprise you.Delete
I've still got 20 year old Power Bait that's still good. But you may be right, wading is starting to worry me a bit.Delete
I was wondering why the Float Tube Cumberland has not been getting any action. I would love to put in on that lake and just kick around to see what is there...................ReplyDelete
Just time needed to put it all together. I have several lakes I want to fish from the Cumberland, just haven't got there yet.Delete
One other thing, the temperature of that lake is probably low 40's now. Might have to wait for it to warm up a bit.Delete
That is one beautiful lake.ReplyDelete
Just to be able to cast a fly there would be worth it.
Rumor has it that black & olive WB's work best, but when the water warms up a bit.Delete
Beautiful pics, but a bit disappointed there wasn't a shot of the booger-free nose :) I suppose there are worse places to hang out and catch some rays...ReplyDelete
Hi Kelly. If you look at the last post, you can see the booger -free nose. Hey, you've got to have something to do on those hang out days. Maybe next time I'll take a book.Delete
Maybe the fishing wasn't stellar, but the scenery sure was. You live in a beautiful area Mark.ReplyDelete
