Yesterday looked pretty similar to the past few days, that water is lowwwww, but people are still getting ’em. Seems it has been steady from from first cast til around 10:30 then it drops off, till later in the evening. We saw some limits, as well as guys with 3s and 4s. Heard that buttonwood, and bluegrass were producing better than Jerome yesterday.

LAST DAY TO WEIGH ANY FISH FOR THE TOURNAMENT (ends at 5:00pm)- Anthony Yeager is still in the lead with 9.56lbs

Looked like everyone had a blast at the trout stockings over the weekend, its always great to see the whole family get to go out fishing, and enjoy the nice weather. We have plenty of small treble hooks, inline spinners, and various trout doughs to help catch ’em. We are OUT of waxworms at the moment, hoping to get more in the next day or so.
