Posts Tagged ‘Finger Lakes Tackle’

I had a few free hours this afternoon so I decided to head to the DSR thinking it was the last day my season pass was good. I was wrong it had expired yesterday but summer afternoon rate is only $15 so I bought a pass and headed to the river.

The temperature was about 40 degrees and the wind was gusting somewhere in the 30 mph range. Perfect fishing weather, ok maybe not but I had time to fish so that’s what I was going to do. I chose a 9 foot light action spinning rod and a watermelon FLT spinner.

After fishing the wall hole and having a small trout get off the hook I decided to walk up to the Little Black Hole. I figured I would fish my way back down. Just below the Little Black I hooked a nice 2 pound smallie that I landed. Then in the Glide I connected with a beautiful dime bright steelhead. Both fish slammed the Finger Lakes Tackle spinner and both fought awesome on the light rod I was using.

I continued fishing my way back to the stairs where I stopped to write this report as the sun came back out.

I am a bit late posting but Saturday I set up and ran a 2 boat trip. The fishing wasn’t hot and heavy but we had some action and managed to get one into the net. The guys were very happy as they had struck out on their trip the day before. (It wasn’t with me) The one that came to the net smashed a Finger Lakes Tackle Blades of Steel spinner. We also took hits on beads. Overall it was a great day. The weather was good and we all had a good time.

Sunday I had the chance to be guided rather than be the guide. It was great. I set up the trip for my friend Steve’s bachelor party and we had a blast. We landed 4 steelhead and lost many others. A big thanks to Mike Kerstetter and James Kirkland for taking us down the river.

This is a short report as I am tired but I will say fishing has been a lot like it used to be. You have to work for them but they are there and if you put in a bit of effort you will be rewarded. Spinners and beads have been the hot baits the last couple weeks. Fly guys that know what they are doing are getting them too.
