I had a great trip to Rufus Woods with my father, Dave and brother Rick. This time I stuck close to the bottom end of the reservoir, and found the fishing just fine. Apparently the triploids released from the net pens at the top end of the reservoir have had enough time to migrate down, because there are plenty of them available. We saw a number of boats working the can line and both the east and west shore, and there are anglers fishing from the shore at the Corps of Engineers Park near the launch site. We fished a variety of lures, and spent our time trolling to cover some water. Black Wooly Bugger flies were a real favorite of the triploids, but we did catch some fish on other lures. I have that Rapala in the purple color that they like. I removed the double treble hooks and put on a single siwash on the number 7 plug and it caught fish just fine. If you are in a hurry to get your two fish limit, a Macks Lure Kokanee Pro with a piece of worm on the lead hook will do the job for you. I have been fishing this lure behind a Fish Flash with no weight and it works fine.
