Weve been down 3 times in the past couple of weeks. Weve hiked up to the dam from the pump station every time, and have managed to catch 15 to 20 every trip. As usual, most on powerbait, but Matt caught several on corn and now thinks it is the bait of choice. Im not persuaded by 1 trip so im stickin to powerbait. I did manage to catch my first 'bama trout on a flyrod after missing the first couple, but i had to fish a tiny sinking nymph-they wouldnt touch a floating fly at all.
The only negative about the last 2 trips was badly stained water--guess the rain got smith muddy so the discharge was very cloudy as well-probably part of the reason we didnt even see fish rising the last two trips.
But, overall, they are still biting!!
