Fished both days from first light until 1pm. Both days we used the Yellow Cliffs launch, although today the dock catwalk was almost under water with the lake rising.
Sunday we went up into river past the no wake buoys to what is left of the island. Spent about an hour up there in muddy water and 57 degrees water, and decided to head down lake with no bites. We stopped in Echo and tried that with no luck. Headed down in search of clearer water and found it in Alder. We ended up with 17 really nice fish. All but one came on bare hook minnow rigs.
Today we headed right for Alder. Good bite until about 10, then you had to chase the crappie and dodge boats. We ended up with 18. We tried trolling jigs, but could only pick up 4. The rest came on minnow rigs again.
By the time we left today water clarity was changing, and debris was coming into the cove. At 1 it was 64 degrees towards the back in about 10FOW.
