I hadn’t been up to Brandts Landing to try the fishing for triploids from shore this winter. I finally got the chance on Thursday. We got about a foot of snow the night before in Leavenworth and I didn’t know what I was going to find on the roads heading north. As it turned out the highway did have some snow on it as I approach Brewster, but it wasn’t bad after that. I was surprised when the roads became completely clear as headed down the hill to Brandts Landing and there wasn’t any snow at all in the park. I set up at my favorite spot and cast my marshmallow and shrimp combo baits into calm water. I fished for two hours, changing baits at intervals, but they were completely ignored. I turned down a ride to the net pens from a passing boat. Just didn’t have the time. Then I visited with a group of four anglers that were there when I arrived, and they were fishless as well. Just one of those days. I want to report that the fishing areas at Brandts Landing are in great shape in spite of the fire that burned through here last summer.
Don Millar was trolling by while I was fishing at Brandts Landing. He invited me to jump on to run up to the net pens. I wish I had had the time.
