Hey I was just seeing if anyone has fished the wheatland ferry a report said that there was a good chance to take some Chinook there so has anyone fished there before?
Yes I know that area very well.. my old stompin' grounds. I wont waste time down there unless the counts are over 700, three to five days prior. Call me stubborn, but I have put in some serious bank time down there and only pulled a few fish - steel and salmon. Small window of opportunity as the algae blooms here in the next few weeks. Just start hittin' it - on the east side below the ferry - west side will produce summers on the gravel bar just below the ferry. One of the best tips I had been given by some of the "old timers" - dont cast so far! Keep it within 15-25 ft. Spin-n-glow, prawn spinners, Kwikfish - plunk on!
As far as I can guesstimate, roughly 45 hrs per fish!!
Sounds like you have it dialed in! I need to try a bit closer maybe? May bring up my catch rate. Yes, the algae is a bloomin!
