I promised my friend James Lebow that it would be sunny and warm last Monday. A perfect day to fish for triploids at the net pens on Rufus Woods Reservoir. He got his boat ready and headed out from Moses Lake that morning. He almost wound up in the ditch a couple of times, due to freezing fog on the road to Pinto Ridge. He made it though, and we made it to the launch at the middle net pens. Still no sunshine. The fog had lifted, but the sun just couldn't break through. We tried fishing on the bottom next to the upper pens and didn’t get a bite. We moved toward the shore and made two passes downstream, trolling spinners on bottom walkers. We have had good success doing this, catching both trout and walleye. Not on Monday. No bites. We moved back up to the upper pens and tried fishing bait on the bottom again. It was about 12:30 now, still fogged in, but he got a bite, and landed a trout of about 3 pounds. Ten minutes later, I got a bite and landed a trout that was slightly bigger. No sunshine but we took home two nice triploids.
