Default Rvr 2-12

Headed back to round valley yesterday around 11am. Fished 3 rods with power bait till a little after 2pm. Not a touch. This is my second trip there this February without a bite. Iím fishing the same area that I did great at from November-January. Not really sure why itís been so dead and if itís worth going back. Do the trout move out to deeper water this time of year? Most of the people that Iíve talked to are having the same results as me.

Yesterday afternoon I casted the Yo Zuri from the far, eastern shore.

C & R'ed a 15" Rainbow. Had another on but lost it.

The previous 3 times there, I got skunked.

I was thinking maybe the same thing, maybe they head deeper. Didnt get skunked all winter till the last 2 trips in Feb. Then hit the BIG skunk twice.

Because of a crazy work schedule that’s the time I’ve been fishing there since November and I’ve done great every trip up until February at that time.

Iíve tried in the past and nothing even comes close to producing the amount of hits like power bait from the shoreline.

I was there with the boat Saturday dragging metal around with planer boards for hours by the shore without a hit. I decided on one last drag far off the South tower and that's when I reeled in a 16" rainbow.

The rain came and I packed it in shortly thereafter, making sure a kayaker made through the ice ok.
