Owasco Lake 10/9


AM: Guided Fred Sr., Fred Jr. and Matt for a 6 hour trip today. Fishing started off slowly but then Fred Jr. had a surprise from a solid rainbow trout in the 4lb range. The trout grabbed his jig on the descent. After a few jumps it was off.

Lake trout fishing gradually picked up and we even had one double. Plastics did best but Hopkins Spoons also produced a fish or two. The guys wound up with around 9 solid fish to 28" on the day.

PM: Guided the Hermans for the afternoon. It was windy and cold out and we even had a light sprinkle on the way back in. We cut the day a little short with the nasty incoming weather. Lake trout action was very good with around 5 or 6 solid fish landed on both plastics and "hardware." Surface temps were around 65/66 degrees if I remember right. They dropped at least a half a degree while we were out. We only saw one or two other boats fishing on the day. Many sportsmen are heading into the woods for bow season.
