Fishing Report: Ashurst Lake
Just got back from creeling Ashurst. Folks were catching fish on garlic PowerBait (chartreuse, yellow and white) on both sides of the lake, but the folks on the point opposite of the boat ramp were catching more than the folks around the boat ramp.
There was an exception with the East side being better. There was a fly fisherman fishing a brown woolly bugger off of a rock next to the boat ramp that was catching a trout about every 3rd cast. He wasn’t casting very far out. He caught one fish pushing 3 pounds.
