I was able to check out two different types of fishing over the weekend. I did some bass fishing at Crescent Bar and I also visited Jameson Lake to see how anglers were doing for trout. I tried fishing for smallmouth bass last year at this time and had a couple of really good trips. I was eager to get back down there to see what it was like this season. What was different on this particular trip was it took a while for the fish to wake up. They didn’t come on the bite until about 11:00 o’clock. Then they hit so hard that you’d think you were stuck on bottom at first. All but one or two of the dozen smallmouth landed were between 2 ½ to 3 pounds. That’s what I like about Crescent Bar, everything you catch is big, compared to some other lakes I fish. When I arrived at Jameson an angler was just putting a fish in a cooler. He offered to show it to me, and he actually had two fish that were real chunks. They must have weighed 3 pounds each. His party also had a good stringer going, and these were mostly yearling rainbow of 10 to 12 inches. Fishing at Jameson has been especially good as there was little pressure on the fish released in October last year, and pressure has been way down so far this season. Jameson would be a great place to take the family. There is plenty of shoreline to spread out on. Be sure to get a slice of pie at Jack’s Resort while you are there. These pies are homemade and the best I’ve ever tasted.
