Blue River Reservoir Fishing Reports

Tried our fishing luck at Blue River Reservoir this morning, the boat launch was just in the water. Thank goodness for four wheel drive, dropped the boat off an embankment and hit the water. Water temp. was 44 degrees and rather clean looking considering the amount of snow run off and rain.

Started trolling and headed for the back of the lake. I hadn't been there for a half a dozen years and never at that level. Once we got to the back of the lake the fish started showing up on the sonar and we pick up our first fish, a nice native Rainbow. We found a hole with a school of fish hanging down around 20 feet, out came the bobber rods and it wasn't long before we had another Rainbow in the net. We fished the back of the lake for the rest of the morning and ending up with 13 Trout, five native and ten fin clipped.

Not bad for a rainy day on a lake that neither of us had ever really fished before. Not another angler on the lake, bank or boat. What a difference between fishing weekends or weekdays, I will take weekdays any time. Here are a few pictures and you can probably feel the wetness. The water temp. never really changed throughout the day, the rain never stopped just let up a few times. Tight lines to all and good luck.
