Have you fished there before HnF? i'll bet it's be lots of fun catching those steelhead in there on your marshrat.

No I have never fished it before. It's a bit far for me, considering I can just dump the sled in locally. But I'm game for anything. Besides tossing the rats in the truck doesn't use the same fuel as if I was dragging the sled behind. And I'm sure Vernonia Pond probably warms up a little earlier than the rivers do. The Willy is still high, cold and off color.
I can fish just about anyday, your free. Phone # is in my profile.

i grew fishing that lake. bass fishing picks up first part of may. ive pulled 5 pounds out of there and seen 8+pounders caught. its hard to fish from the bank when the lilly pads come up. float tubes are the way to go. green plastic salamanders. texas rig of course.

I fished it yesterday for a couple hours. Not a bite from anything close to shore. The nights out here have been quite cold and I just don't think that the bass have moved up shallow yet. I fished several spots that always have fish bedding on them this time of year and just nothing there yet. I flipped jigs and Carolina rigs around the reeds and nothing. We just need a couple more warm days and evenings to get them to come up shallow.

"moved up to shallow" I'd believe the deepest in the lake is about less than 10 ft of water. where else they be hiding

When I say shallow I mean 3 feet of water at most... They hunker down in a trough across the middle of the lake and move out as it warms...
