Region 2 Fishing Report for 10/27/16
With the cooler weather fishing at Dogtown Reservoir continues to be excellent. Fish are being caught at all locations on the lake. Boat anglers trolling small lures like Joe’s flies, Kastmasters, and Panther Martins have had great success. Fly fishing remains excellent using Prince Nymphs, Zug Bugs, Pheasant Tails, and Wooly Buggers (Brown and Black). Bait anglers are catching fish on worms and power bait fished both on the bottom or 2-3 feet under a bobber. Now is an great time to go fishing before winter comes and the lake freezes over.
My coworker and I fished Kinnikinick Yesterday (10/26/16) evening from a boat and had great success trolling Joe’s Flies. Black and Royal Coachmen patterns worked best. A tip to increase your catch is to tie a fly approximately 12 inches above your lure, we used Prince Nymphs and Zug Bugs. The water is murky so a slow retrieve is necessary for the fish to be able to detect and strike your lure. Other anglers reported catching fish from shore on Black and Brown Wooly Buggers.
Francis Short Pond
Francis Short Pond was stocked this week with Rainbow Trout. Trout are being caught on meal worms fished 2-3 feet under a bobber, small lures, and flies. Fishing has been great for trout. end
