Courtwright/Wishon

Rating - Fair   

Friday, Oct 22 2021
Kelly Brewer of the Wishon Village RV Park and Store said, The Wishon Village RV Park and Store is closing for the season, but rainbows from 12 to 14 inches are still hitting off of the banks with Power Bait or inflated nightcrawlers. Jay and Delinda Irvine were at Wishon on Sunday, and Irvine said, The trout bite was hot catching two limits of rainbows in two hours. We trolled Dicks red Koke Busters behind a gold sparkle Mountain dodger with red reflective tape on the chrome side at about 130 feet back with a 1-ounce weight at 1.9-2.1 mph. On the other side pole, we ran a Paulina Peak red/white spinner behind a red/brass dodger. The side poles were the best set ups for the day. One fish was caught on the down rigger on a broken back Rapala in a German Brown pattern at 75 feet back and 40 feet down. The Bloody Tuna garlic was the best scent to put on the worms and red corn. Red seems to be a really strong color right now at Wishon.
