Well today we went to MHCC pond and my son Hayden slammed his limit of bows in less than two hours! He did a great job fighting his fish and even managed a 13 incher...(not bad for early stockers) the rest were right at 10-11 inches...we started right off getting bites as soon as the first bait was in the water and I could have got my limit as well but we figured five was enough for now...better to leave some in there for others.

What worked? There were about ten others that I saw fishing and no body was doing any catching so I told a couple of them that we were using chart. Power Nuggets off the bottom with about a foot and a half leader (slide weight or split shots) and as we were packing up they hooked up! I had a great time watching Hayden pull those five fish in and it was a great morning to fish! DB:D

I saw u guys down there, I was the kid in the yellow Oregon sweatshirt. I go to MHCC and after class I always head down there and talk to the anglers. I headed over to salish and few guys were hookin up with 16-18 inchers but no dice for me, the bite went DEAD about 15 mins after I got there

:cool: man, I go to MHCC as well...we might do Salish on Sunday or go back to MHCC...I promised Hayden that he could have another crack at 'em before I do some more Steel fishing next week (and go to school)...did you notice where the action was at Salish? Was Salish busy? Thanks for the info!

I am who I am today because my dad did that kind of thing with me and got a rod in my hand as a young age as well.... Didn't fish for years really till one day a girlfriends dad took me salmon fishing been down hill from then... Think when u put the bug in them at a young age like that they have it for the rest of there life. Even if it takes a while to show.

WOOT WOOT...dats my favorite mathematical equation right there:

Dad + Son(s) + Fish = WINNERS!!!

BTW...Chartreuse was THE color to use everywhere I trout fished last year. Moral of the story, always carry multiple colors...but DON'T forget the chartreuse!

Everyone was hittin em around the dock area at salish, and the other side over there. PowerEggs were the ticket there as well, and I havn't re-stocked my trout gear for too long

Hey Moe,

The Pond it located off Kane...depends on where you are coming from but if you jump on Stark and take it all the way to MHCC, take a right on Kane...than you just turn into the last gate and parking for the pond is in the back parking lot next to Kane (there is a light there at the entrance) good luck.
