Michael W.: Aug. 15. Caught Some Nice Quality Fish Today At Ashurst Lake! In 5 1/2 hours, I caught & released (10) nice quality rainbow trout, a 16″, 17″, 18″ and (7) other trout ranging from 12 to 13 1/2 inches. I also broke off (2) more fish … One 22″ trout next to bank, as it wrapped around the green leafed & pink flowered water plants … The other was a monster fish that I never saw, once hooked, it spooled me for 50 yards as it headed for the middle of lake before breaking me off, what a thrill! All fish caught on crappie tubes and plastic grubs, by working jigs slowly on the bottom. Weather Conditions: Cloudy. Water Conditions: Stained with algae bloom.
