TROUT Finally

Social Fishing

 Friday Feb 5, 2021  I really enjoyed fishing the forebay today.   Today I had the honor and pleasure of fishing around Brian, Vaughn and Dan  most of the day.   We even cornered some stripers between the boats like we use to years ago.  Yesterday Vaughn told me Bryce Tedford was going to be at…
