It's been really quiet around here for awhile. I know it's just the beginning of the off season but was just wondering what everyone was up to.
My son and I were up in the White Mountains the other day and had the boat in a couple of lakes for some spring fishing. I caught 3 rainbows at Horseshoe Lake on the White Mountain Apache Reservation and he caught another at River reservoir in Greer. The prize of the day was an 18" 3 lb German brown that he landed at River Res. We were trolling Rapalas at depths of 6 to 8 ft. The weather was gorgeous and all the lakes were full. My favorite lake, Fools Hollow, in Show Low has risen aprx 10 feet or more since last year. The lake is full and flowing over the spillway.
It looks like it did 30 years ago. I'm going to have to re-learn all that new structure that hasn't been under water in years. Looking forward to working all the new catfish hiding places.
All the geese we saw were paired up and some looked like they've already staked out nesting territory.
