Friday evening we fished at the pond, and took four trout. The pond is warming, and the trout will soon move to the cooler river by the end of June.
Bass favor warmer water than trout like, and some bass will come into the pond from the river once the trout are gone. Bass and trout will share the Snake and Grande Ronde Rivers when the trout resettle there for the summer.
Right now, the river is still too cold to urge the bass to much activity; they’re still sluggish and disinterested in chasing fishing lures.
We took Pisca-Dory on the river today, enjoyed the little lagoons, the families of geese shepherding their goslings along the walkway and into the water, and seeing a couple of bass jump, but not close to our fishing lures.
We enjoyed a pleasant zero-catch day, even though the heat was too much for me. Offsetting the heat were pelicans on the water and in flight.
My husband Vic took all the photos and the video for this post.
The osprey is the best fisher on river or pond.
A tribe of geese enter the river from the lagoon.
Lots of fluffy goslings were part of another troupe.
