I tried a slough in the Mid-Columbia area today. The water is very cold and the fish inactive. Got 31 fish total for about 4 hours of fishing. 21 Bluegill, 5 Black Crappie, 1 Yellow Perch and 4 small Pikeminnow.
Everything caught on 1” Gulp Minnows on tiny bare jig heads. You had to place that jig literally right in front of the fishes face, they wouldn’t chase anything. The water actually looks completely dead so I did a lot of “educated” blind casting.
The bite was extremely light, very hard to detect. I looked for pauses in the drop.
Still fun and kinda surprising for November 17th. I usually quit warm water fishing in September!
