Trout and a striper  (Read 506 times)

Made the trip to Waterloo Park last weekend for a little trout fishing.  I got my limit pretty quick so decided to head on up to Denison Dam for a little striper fishing since it was still early in the morning.  Ended up with 5 trout, one of which was a Palomino trout.  Rounded out the morning with a 9 pound, 26" striper from below Denison Dam.  It was a pretty good day for fishing.  I think I need a bigger cutting board though.

Went up to Waterloo Park again this morning.  Temperature was 27 degrees when we got there at 7:15 a.m. and water was freezing in the rod tip guide as I reeled in.  Didn't get even one bite.
About 8:00 a.m. people started coming in for the trout derby that officially started at 9:00 a.m..  

As things got crowded, I left about 8:30 a.m. to drive up to Denison Dam to try my hand at striper fishing again.  Struck out there too.  I did see two striper caught - they were hooked right up next to the turbine outlet wall.

I stopped in at the trout pond on my way home and saw several people with limits lining up at the trout derby station for weigh in.  I didn't do any fishing though as I had to get back home.

At least Waterloo Pond was stocked yesterday - I was beginning to wonder.  The trout seem to be very sluggish until the sun starts shining on the pond and the water warms up.

Probably headed up there tomorrow morning for another round.

Limited out early this morning on the trout at Waterloo.  It was 35 degrees this morning so much better than yesterday.

Went on up the road to Denison Dam for an hour.  No bites for me again today but I did see a 8-9 pound striper caught this morning - again hooked right next to the turbine outlet wall.  As long as the flood gates are open and they're generating I think the stripers will be there.

LLELA (Lewisville TX) was stocked earlier this week; hope to give it a go for trout this weekend. Rain permitting!  Collated a LLELA Video Playlist that me be of interest to some!

Made the run up to Denison's Waterloo Park today (Saturday).  Got there at 7:15 a.m. and left at 8:00 a.m. after not getting a single bite from the trout.  They might have turned on a little later like last weekend but I decided to go to Denison Dam for more striper fishing.

That was a good decision as I ended up with 5 striper between 15" and 17" by 10 a.m.

Learned trout were stocked earlier this week at LLELA - Lake Lewisville Ecological Learning Area. Not been to LLELA for awhile, decided to give it a go. Struck out but did hear from another fisherman that he had several on the line that morning but missed landing them. Later, did see the same fisherman land one... so there are trout at LLELA.  Just not on our hooks... Bummer!

Decided to call it a trip but would stop at a pond on the way home in hopes of catching at least a fish so as not to call the day a bust. Ended up catching two bass at the pond by the Allen Cinemark. One went for a red Damsel Fly, and the other went for a PMOT - Purple Marabou and Orange Thing! Woohoo... was an awesome day fishing!

Fished LLELA and Struck Out But...!

Made another trip up to Denison Dam this morning.  Got my limit by 8:30 a.m. and I'm glad because it was 35 degrees with a light wind.

Made the trip up to Waterloo Saturday morning and also this morning (Sunday, 2/24/19).   Limited out both days.  No pictures but you'll have to trust me.  I just finished frying up one limit for dinner - yummy!

No stripers this weekend.  I checked the release schedule Friday night and it was 4950cfs which is perfect.  I pulled up to the Denison Dam Saturday morning after limiting out at Waterloo and NADA - no release.  That will teach me to check the release schedule the morning I go.

Took another trip up to Denison Dam for some striper fishing yesterday, 3/23/2019.  I got there about 8am and had to wait for a thunderstorm with LOTS of lightning to pass through.  After things cleared up the fishing was pretty good.  Came home with 5 stripers with the biggest going 22".

Could only fit three on the cutting board at one time as shown in the attached picture.

Made another trip up to Denison Dam yesterday morning, 3/30/2019.  When I left Allen at 7:00 a.m. it was 65 degrees. and when I got to the dam it was 48 degrees.  The weather forecast was spot on as they said the cold front would blow thru about that time.  The forecast was also correct about the winds - it was blowing 20 - 25 mph which made it hard to cast out.

Fishing was slower but I caught and kept 2 nice keepers, 18" and 20", and threw back several smaller stripers.  It took me half the day yesterday to warm up after being in that cold wind for 4 hours.
