Any Ifishers going to be at the Fishery on saturday. I will be there, somewhere around Horsetail in a red Jetcraft looking for the elusive peeler. Anybody have a recent report?
Thanks in advance.

I hit the area for a couple of hours last weekend. I will not post a report on oversize due to the amount of criticism that you get from "haters" and every other back seat angler on the subject but I will say that they are in thick. Fish below horsetail in about 30 to 45 feet of water. Anchor in the softer water near the main current seam with a fresh shad trimmed with a long leader and hang on. Good luck :cheers:

Can you buy shad now at the fishery??? I'd rather not haul the shad gear along if possible.

Monday I'm taking two guys who havent experienced the oversized sturgeon spectacle..should be fun.

Trim the gill plates, fins, and tail off. This will help your bait not spin as much and will keep it on the bottom. I also cut slits along the fish to let it ooze stinky oily stuff.

Sometimes you don't even need to use a whole shad to catch an oversize. We usually quarter the shad and have caught more fish then you can shake a stick at (not trying to brag, just have been doing it for many years). The gills works well also. We might be going to Camas Sunday to try. Good Luck!
