Freshwater Lagoon (Reprise) 3-31-2011
« on: March 31, 2011, 10:50:34 pm »
I fished Freshwater Lagoon again today with almost identical results as Tuesday except it wasn't raining.   :)  Was OTW at 1:30 and off at 5:00.  I caught four of the hatchery trout.   One fish was 12" the other three were smaller.   I caught all of them trolling a red spinner.  The fish seemed more spread out today, not concentrated in the southwest end.  I caught the 12" fish almost in the middle of the lagoon, the others were spread around from the west side to the southeast side.  I circumnavigated the entire lagoon while trolling.  It was a tad windy but that's not much of a problem in the hobie.

There were lots of people  fishing. One guy in a bass boat, two guys in inner tubes, and quite a few shore fishermen, mostly in waders, fly-fishing.    They guy in the bassboat was bass fishing and had three, one was pretty nice. (maybe 4 lbs). The guys in the inner tubes were trout fishing and had about the same luck as I did.  They mentioned that the lagoon was stocked on Monday.  One of the shore fishermen said he had tried Stone Lagoon earlier today and had no luck.  (like me, yesterday)

This was my last hurrah for this trip.  I'm headed back to San Jose tomorrow, then LA on Saturday.   It sure is nice up here. My wife tells me it's 80 degrees at home!  I think I like it better up here. -- So it's 299 to I5 tomorrow to avoid the Garberville mudslide!

I'll be back up in June.   ;D

Nice work, Dave!  I'd say you had a very successful trip considering the weather we've had lately! 

101 getting destroyed was certainly a major event!!  Anyway, safe travels, and WTG on the trip you had.   :)

See you OTW!
