This morning was absolutely perfect. Gus Fuentes, Fred George and I started fishing at 6:15 AM with a very light NW wind and an incoming tide. It wasn't long before we were hooking up with solid trout to 23 inches. We had our 20 fish limit by 8 O'clock and continued to catch and release at least another 20 nice trout before heading in around 9:30. It's been nice lately to get an early limit because by 11 O'clock it's scorching hot. All of our fish were caught on 10W40 and Avocado Assassins working slicks in 9 to 12 feet of water over hard shell.

The water temperature was up to 88 degrees and these fish were right near the bottom. This is a typical pattern for this time of year as the dissolved oxygen level in the upper water column is low. Just find the small slicks and cast just up wind of them while allowing your lure to sink to the bottom before starting your retrieve. This pattern should remain in tact for the next 2 to 3 weeks unless we get another deluge of rain like we had a few weeks ago.

I still have some days left in August and September if anyone wants to take advantage of some fun fishing.
