View Full Version : New Blast of fish?
10-03-2004, 09:03 AM
Any reports of a new blast of fish or is it still a trickle? I heard the Big Man got a push the other night and so did the Little Man about 2 days prior to the Big Man. I am still hearing rumors(mind you they are rumors) of some big 4 year olds being taken out in the big lake still. This doesn't surprise me but the size did(28lbs.) I have talked to a few charter friends of mine from Ludville and a couple of them have reported not catching any 4 year old fish in a bout 10 days plus so maybe the big lake has emptied out? Only time and mother nature will tell! Tight lines to all!

Did the Little M get new fish? I went three weeks ago and found mainly old fish and saw old ones waiting at the wier. Are fresh fish comining in?

I think this run is like a flat bottle of Pepsi. :p
I've heard nothing of a "blast" of fish. It's more of a fast steady drip than a mere trickle. More than enough fish around, but not insane numbers.

Maybe its just caused by Monday morning, but I am a bit confused. In simple terms, does anybody have a PM report update? We are planning a trip to the river, but am not sure if we sould hit the upper gravel, middle holes, or go low and pitch hardware? We are headed up either way, as it is time to regain my spirtual center! Any advice would be appreciated. Thanx!

When are you going? I went up on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week and fished the middle section of the river. We had no crowds and plenty of fish to play with. The weather was nice; the people we met were very nice. There are fish throughout the system. From what I heard the fly water has been fishing very well. We fished the mid-section because we found plenty of fish and most likely a lot less people.
If you want to keep fish, stay out of the flies only water. If you dont want to keep fish give flies a shot. The fish have not been coming in waves because of lack of fall rains and warm fall weather. There will be fish all over the river and any area that would lack fish would be the lower river if they have stopped coming in.
Most people logically want to be where the most fish are, however the trade off is that more people will be there as well. I cant fault people that drive hours to get to the river and expect some action for the effort, and want the latest fish activity. However the run changes constantly, fish that may be in a stretch one day will possibly not be there the next. You have to hit some spots and just find some fish; I would suggest a good map of the river with access points and remember to stay in the river around private property.

Schmidt Outfitters is saying the PM is at peak for the run, I don't beleiev that, I don't think it will ever peak just a smooth trickle of fish, any comments, does anyone else think its peaked?

From the pictures on the reports, I would say we have some time left. Thoes fish dont look too beat up. It seems the truly fugly ones are not around yet.

There has been a fair number of new fish moving up the system the last couple of days. I don't know how long it will last but the guys down in the Custer area have been hammering them from the report I got. All the fish the last two days have been fresh. Even got a chrome bright hen today.
You see bunches of 6 to 8 and lots of 2's and 3's moving. None of the holes are loaded to overflowing, but there are enough around to make it fun. Still have to do some searching though. There are a lot of fresh fish on gravel if you are inclined that way.
