    Default Soldier Creek 6-5-19

    Took the boat out for first time, We launched at 9.30, not many boats on the water. Trolled between dam and opening to the channel,we caught 5 Kokes 2 cutthroats. Kokes between 13-17 inches, we found the Kokes at 25 ft. Color was white squid, we left at 2pm. Talked to two other boats when leaving both said they had very slow days. Still a good first trip on the Berry

    Be careful if you travel thru the narrows as there is a lot of debris and large logs, some partially submerged. There were also some on the Soldier Creek side. Strawberry side had quite a bit of weed.

    Went thru the narrows again yesterday and that debris doesn't seem to want to disappear.

    It was slow but no skunk, fished Strawberry side most of am. Talked to some at ramp as some did good while others did not so good. The water was stained a little but not enough to deter fishing. I came off of lake with 1 descent koke but no matter what I switched up to the cutts wanted to play and they were in the slot. Soldier Creek side had a few trollers but not sure if anyone did any good. It should start picking up again. BTW, there is a lot of salad floating on the Berry side in areas, that didn't seem to change much in the 2 days a week apart I was there. One thing that is consistent is the wind, by noon it started it up.
