Sunday Funday @ Don Pedro 5-22-2022

New client Paul brought along his family for a day of trout and kokanee fishing @ Don Pedro. They arrived @ 6:00 A.M. and I already had the boat in the water, we loaded up and headed out. The second rod was barley out when the first rod was hit but soon lost, the fishing was on and I could not get the rods out fast enough. After loosing the first three fish we finally put a fish in the Reliable fish bag. The day was filled with laughter and many fish coming over the rail. The day we had full sun and beautiful weather with a light breeze. We fished till 1:00 o’clock and headed for the dock with 10 kokanee, 13 rainbows and one king salmon. They let some trout go and lost a few and we missed some opportunities on the kokanee. A great day with some great guys. Thanks for fishing with Gold Country Sportfishing.

Long time client Mike and he wanted to treat his Friend to a fishing trip on Don Pedro. The morning was questionable as for the forecast was to be windy, when we arrived it was not bad so we headed out and I wanted to see if the fish were holding in a new area, well be boated two smaller kokanee and we left the area to where we had been fishing and we were soon we rewarded with fish. The wind was blowing but not bad and doable. We were putting fish in the fish bag and at 8:45 Mikes buddy needed to get going as he had to travel. The mornings tally was Five kokanee and four rainbows with some lost fish and we missed some bites do to the wind as it was hard to notice the bites. They were camera shy.

New client Tim and returning client Mike were onboard for some trout and kokanee action. I put these two single guys together to make a trip. Tim wanted fish and Mike wanted just kokanee. The day was way different than the previous day as it started out ok but quickly died as we were fighting the clutches of a full moon. Still no shortage of trout however the kokanee were scattered but we did end up with Tim Having five trout and two kokanee and Mike went home with three kokanee. This was the first day out that the wind did not blow. A great day with two great guys!!!! Thanks again for fishing with Gold Country Sportfishing.

Kokanee trip @ Don Pedro 5-17-2022

Returning clients Bob, Al and Mark were back onboard with me @ Don Pedro on May the 17th to chase down the kokanee in the big Reservoir. It took us a while to find the kokanee but once we did we started putting fish in the Reliable fish bag. It wasn’t faced pace but we found a small school of them that was willing to bite and we had plenty of action on trout that was all released. They landed over twenty trout. The days end was ten kokanee landed and a few lost and some missed opportunities. A great day on the waters of Don Pedro with great people. Thanks again guys!!!

Combo Trip @ Don Pedro 5-14-2022

New clients DJ and his son Rafter were onboard with me for the day @ Don Pedro in hopes of catching some fish. The morning started off with not even all the rods out and we had fish on but unfortunately it came off however the next one made its way to the net. after putting a few fish in the Reliable fish bag the bite slowed down so we moved on, after a short time I noticed four fish on the Garmin and within 30 seconds we had a triple on fish with three different species. We were getting a nice selection of fish when one of the rods got bit and DJ reeled in a really nice King and with in a few minutes we had another good fish on and I am certain that it was also a king but came undone. Then about 45 minutes later the wind started coming up and it was not going away but it was late in the trip when we decided to call it a day. The tally for the day was two King Salmon, Five kokanee and ten Rainbows. Another great day on the waters of Don Pedro with great people. Thanks again!!!

Don Pedro combo trip 4-19-2022

New client Bill brought along a group of young men for a day of fishing at Don Pedro/ The weather was cloudy with some rain in the forecast. I started setting rods and in just a few short minutes we were catching fish. It was hard to keep for a while then we settled in and the bite was great. The boys did a great job of reeling in fish and they just kept some for the dinner table. The weather turned out to be perfect with never even a drop of rain and no wind as well. They called it at noon with 12 fish, a mix of kokanee, trout and small king salmon. It turned out great as each boy at the end caught a fish I would put the rod away and lucky enough every rod caught a fish. Thanks again everyone and thank you for fishing Gold Country Sportfishing.
