    Default A Gorge-ous Good Day 5-5-2020

    Picked up AFDan at o'dark thirty as this is our usual norm. As I have change my mind before in the past whenever I get to the split of I-84 & I-80 I stayed on track to the Gorge not opting for the Berry since ice off. As we pulled into Evanston port of entry we could see Wyoming F&G hasn't awaken yet by 0520ish like they were the week before. Got to Lucerne about 0730 and quickly onto water. We headed to Anvil Draw(water temp 46) since this has been the hot spot for a couple of weeks. We found the kokes and did really good but the numbers didn't seem to add after hearing from others & seeing what we did on the sonar. We trolled there for a while with an occasional burst of hit & run with 1 double. Heading south thru the pipe we couldn't buy a bite with anything. As we entered Rawlins Draw(temp up to 52) we found the motherlode of kokes everywhere. By then it was later in the afternoon and lockjaw had set in, it was also time to wrap it up. It was a good day with calm seas and occasional nice slight breeze that would feel good on a toasted face.

    Pink lures was the better choice, orange wasn't working this trip.The bite got better when corn was tipped. It won't be long before those 15-17" fish be much larger as in June & July.

    Looks like a great day, did you notice any difference in the size of the fish between up north and Rawlins? I have not fished Rawlins this year.

    By the time we got to Rawlins the bite was practically in lockjaw mode and getting late. We did bring one to the boat at which we could see it was about 14-15" then self released. Not enough to be judgemental of size in the area. I do have to add these were some feisty kokes no matter the size and was great watching their acrobatic dance on the surface.

    Love it! This boat has a much bigger tank so hopefully won't happen again.
