October 16, 2017 - Knowles to Blue Notch

E-mail Print PDF
Scott, Mike, Steve and Steve fished Friday afternoon Oct. 13th   to Monday afternoon Oct 16th.  Water temperature varied from 64 to 70.  Smallmouth fishing was most consistent ( especially in Red Canyon ): catching on casted jig heads with most any color worm or trolling with medium divers in 10 -> 15 feet.  We did catch the most smallmouth on points near entrances to canyons.  We did notice what other few boats we saw were focused on these points as well. This was true from Knowles to Blue Notch.
On Sunday we ventured up North, ( after staying close to Blue Notch Saturday the 14th when the wind came up early and stayed up all day ).  We visited Striper City and Two Mile early in the morning to limited success ( 7:30 -> 10:00 ).  Certainly there were plenty of bait fish present in the back of  Two Mile.  The entrance to White showed numerous bait fish and sport fish in 20 feet of water.  From 11:00 until 2:00: Trolling in Farley ( about 2/3 of the way back ) and White ( around Battleship ) produced 13 stripers and 4 walleye using medium and deep divers:  from 5 to 15 feet.  All were very healthy and fat.  Water temperature that day was 64.
On Monday we fished Knowles, Tapestry Wall and Cedar:  we graphed very few bait fish except for the back of the Cedar canyon and caught only a few small mouth and large mouth of the very small variety, and no striper sitings.
