So I spent the afternoon up at Olallie with my dad. It was great haven't gone trout fishing with him in a couple years. Got up there around 2pm. The fish were jumping all over the place again, anywhere from 1ft-10ft offshore. Out in the middle of the lake nothing all day long. Instead of hitting these white moth bugs they were going nuts for mosquitos. Too bad I really messed up my already messed up back a couple days ago and could barely get out of bed. My dad busted out the fly rod and caught some small ones then I think he noticed how jealous I was that he could use flies but my back hurt too bad to keep casting and all that so he switched over to powerbait with me. Great day. Wish I wasn't in so much pain but it was great to spend some time with my dad up there. Plus we caught a bunch. 19 total 6 kept I got 10 he got 9 nothing special. The smallest was about 8" the biggest around 14" or so. They were stealing our bait like crazy. Seriously we would cast out and either have a fish on or our bait stolen within a minute or two all day long. A little dissapointed in Fisherman's Marine. Went there to get some stuff. They were out of nearly everything. Almost no Powerbait and what they did have they were charging 6.19 for! I would have bought Powereggs but wasn't about to shell over that much when I can get them for four at Kmart! Other than that slight dissapointment and severe back pain it was a great day! Here are a couple pics.
