Finally caught trout over 20 inches, a rainbow at 20 and a brown at 21 inches. Both were caught on a Flash back pheasant tail below a black wooly bugger in about 20 feet of water. We primarily threw tube jigs and the fly rod was left in a locked pole holder. The fishing was best in the first 2 to 3 hours of the morning. I think we should have focused on fly fishing in the morning and swithced to tubes after 10am. These trout were caught at the mouth of Buffalo cove off the west point. We caught a lot of trout from that point to the west, where there is a brown clay wall caused by erosion, fishing tubes right up against the shore like you would for bass. Also fished the weedbeds on the west side and did well with tube jigs for both trout and small pike. Lots of other boats in that area on Friday. Hope that helps anyone else still going up this year.

We were fishing anything close to motor oil. I think that the Berkley power tube (no longer make motor oil) out fishes the salted or plastic tubes. The pumkin with green/red flake is the tube I used the most and fished the best. Tried motor oil and black plastic tubes with less or no success but a gray salt and pepper did fish well. Big problem was the 1/4 of the pike would cut our mono line and power pro braided line didn't catch nearly as many fish. Still not sure what to do about that.

use the power pro braided line and attach a Florocarbon leader...florocarbon can take more abuse than mono....and its invisable underwater....to attach them I use a double surgeans knot
