Hey elvis it's good to hear from you. Glad you had a great weekend. Was Dowdy 100% ice free?

Yes,Hatch.it was all open, water level is low but not to low,boatramp is usable;you have to watch out for those biga..boulders some of them just coverd enought with water so you can't see'em,be really careful near the campground,and on the far eastside where the House is ;I hit couple of those biga.. boulders and it scared the Sh.. out of me thought I might damaged or even broke the Prop.on my motor,so for anyone how goes there just be careful in those areas. Parvin had a good amound of Bellyboats out there;and some people where fishing by those Rocks you can see from the Road,when you go by,and it is all open too.

Well, I was out at Dowdy on Sunday myself with 2 other friends. We went out around 3-4pm and did some trolling. Was a tad chilly outside as it was a little windy, cloudy (threatening rain but never came), and cold. We started out by the dam on Kastmasters (tiger stripe) and RoosterTails (yellow/green). After one pass we had nothing.

Eventually the RoosterTail started getting hit and after we caught 2 on it, we all switched to the bright color RoosterTails. I on the other hand had a 1/8 oz Rainbow colored Meeps. Ended up catching quite a few smaller Rainbows. All in all, we were fishing the very top and the 3 of us limited out and probably let 7 or 8 others go back. Very good day considering the weather. Some day we're going to get a camera to record our catches. :)
