McCloud Reservoir Fish Report for 7-3-2006

by Scott Caldwell

 The Vermeere family had quite a day on the Reservoir. When it was all said and done the group landed 25 of 35 Trout. Most of the Trout were of the Rainbow variety. They did land two other species of Trout, one Brookie and one Brown. Trolling, jigging and plugs were all successful methods with the hotshot/worm combo landing most of the Trout on the day. We trolled a Sep's kick-dodger and a worm in the morning out near the dam and picked up a few fish, then we jigged a buzzbomb in the same area for a few more( The Brookie and Brown both were caught while jigging). Then we headed up the McCloud River and finished off the day hooking over 20 nice Trout. Back-trolling a size 50 hotshot/worm combo was the hot method of the day. I'd like to thank Arnim, Bill, John, Robyn and William for a great day you all kicked some serious Trout butt!!!!!!  

********The Klamath River is finally under 2000cfs (1970), the section below the Irongate hatchery should now be fishable. The water has been on a steady drop for the last few days so now is the time, before it drops below 1000cfs.
