Fishing Report 05/20/2022

How's Fishing? We have had another really great week of fishing. We had a good bit of rain yesterday but all in all it was a good week. The fish didn't seem to be real picky this week as far as color. Several different colors in the marabou were used this week such as (powder puff pink) "light pink,"  (yellow and red), (red and black) and (red and chartreuse) and they seemed to be working great.  Oh yeah, let's not forget about the old trusty  "black and yellow."  
We had several customers this week using cracklebacks (olive), (red) and the Bennett Blue.  Small dark colored shrimp scuds also seemed to be popular. In zone three the Rainbow PowerBait and Sparkle Salmon Peach were AGAIN very popular this week.
The water is looking good and you can actually see your boots in the water. It is clearing up though we have a little rain in the forecast. I hope everyone has a great weekend and good luck on the stream!
