Details:First trout outing at the Ashland Rez today, and I caught my limit - 3 rainbows - two 15 inch, and one 13 inch.

All taken on chartreuse Powerbait.

I had never shore fished there before, so it was a bit of exploration as I made my way down the eastern shore from the Spring Street parking lot. Not a lot of open spaces to fish from. I tried one spot for about half an hour and got nothing - throwing bass baits with a second rod while watching the trout rod with the Powerbait.

I moved to another spot about 3/4 of the way down the shoreline towards the dam, and things picked up considerably as I caught three within an hour or so. The last fish, one of the 15 inchers, only weighed 1.1 pounds but I had fight him long and hard to land him. I was using ultralight spinning tackle with a 4 pound leader and there were lots of big rocks in the water as well.

When I got back to the parking lot where several people were fishing in the cove, I got a lot of attention with the three rainbows on a stringer, questions about what I was using for bait, and one guy, and I'm not sure he was kidding, wanted to buy the trout from me, LOL.

They made for a fine dinner tonight.
