Some of you may have seen the video on did on Billy Clapp Lake about three weeks ago. This was done when the water was down, and I was showing people that there are some very nice rainbow taken from the shore. Now the water is coming up, and I posted a photo on my Facebook page, showing that the dock is starting to float and launching would be possible very soon. I was invited to fish Billy Clapp last Sunday and was pretty excited about it. I have had some amazing days here in the early spring. The rainbow can average 15 to 16 inches and are very healthy. I usually start the season fishing for the trout by flatlining plugs. I have box set aside just for this purpose. It is full of a variety of the bright orange floating Rapalas of different sizes, including the biggest one they make. I have some other Rapalas in different patterns, like the perch and rainbow that also work very well. Sometimes I run these away from the boat on side planers, as these fish are in the top of the water column. I’ll let you know how we do.
