Camanche employee, Sarah sent this picture and report on 6/4. She wrote, “Both of us used a drop shot, using Bass Pro Shop Tournament Series worms, we both fished off of a boat, and didn’t stay in one spot. We fished multiple areas along the shoreline where we thought might be good “sabotage spots” “I personally caught 15 smallmouth bass, 4 of which were legal size, biggest was 16” Jason caught about 9 smallmouth bass and 1 spotted bass, only one of his small mouth was legal size 14” and the spotted bass was 13” We kept 6 in total that were legal size and they tasted great! It was a fun day!”

Our local trout expert, Robbie Dunham posted this report and picture to Facebook on 6/5, “Today I fished with Paul from the Fishermans Friend… He is totally a Bass Guy… Never seen a Downrigger in Action!!! Well today I fixed that… Met me at North Shore ramp at 5:30… Started down the River Channel and worked our way to the Dam… Open Water with Speedy Shiners!!! Ended the Day with 8 on the stick, with 12 grabs… Had 2 1/2 hour period with the “Kiss of Death”…. Not Good… We took turns bringing in these Fish!!! Here are a couple Photos from my Phone… My good Camera battery went dead… It’s on the Charger now… Until next time….Robbie, Koke Machine Guide Service.” When asked about the appearance of the trout Robbie replied, “They are called Copods. They only cling on the skin and scales. They DO NOT burrow into the Meat. They don’t look very good, but it doesn’t affect the meat at all. I Fillet and Skin them.”​
