The wife just gave the ok, so I'm all set! I'll head out on Thursday or Friday, and stay over for a 3 or 4 day weekend. I'm going to try both fishing for trout on the river just below the dam, and fishing for catfish from my boat on the lake. They're stocking trout on the 22nd, so I figure if I go out a couple of days after that they should be ready to bite! I've never caught any trout before, so wish me luck! I'm going to try corn, marshmallows, and power bait unless some of you tell me different. On the lake, I'm going to get a cast net and try to catch some bait for the first time. If I can catch any I'll fish with shad. If not, probably shrimp or frozen chicken liver. I'll probably set some jugs in the morning, fish around the lake with a pole for a while, then bring the jugs in. Based on what other people have been telling me about winter catfishing I'll try to fish on the bottom near dropoffs in around 40' of water. Sound about right? I'm excited, because I haven't done much serious fishing since early fall. I hope I don't freeze to death. Wish me luck, and if you have any tips for me pass them on!
