Check flow conditions before fishing
August 16, 2013
White River - Freshwater Fishing Report
Minimum flow is now in effect it seems and the fishing patterns are changing a little. Minimum flow is equivelant to 800 cfs compared to 1 generator is 3000 cfs. So on low water conditions, you will think you can motor up shoals, but you'll have to be very careful not to break a motor prop.
Spoon fishing has been the "go to" for most guides and fishermen. The most popular has been the 1/6th oz. red and gold Thomas Buoyant spoon. The 2nd most popular spoon has been the red/gold little cleo. Reports on the gold or silver Vibrax blue fox has been few and far between. The few fishermen that have reported on the blue fox #2 has been "it's catching trout very well!"
Jig fishing for trout has also picked up. 1/16th and 1/8th oz black or brown jigs.
The "stand-by's" consist of the florescent yellow powerbait original or garlic scent, white eagle claw eggs, 3" pink berkley powerbait trout worms, and pink gulp worms.
