If anyone is going below the dam at Livingston today and give me a ride in their boat, I will be happy to pay the launch fee and show some below the dam tricks.
Hey Loy thanks for all the posts. I havent fished much lately, so reading your reports help ease the pain. What happened to your boat? Can you launch a 22ft bay boat below the damm and get around ok? how much trouble is it?If anyone is going below the dam at Livingston today and give me a ride in their boat, I will be happy to pay the launch fee and show some below the dam tricks.
Well I did have frozen rod guides and aching fingers today but the fish were still biting and the ones i caught were bigger.I caught 3 undersize strippers that seemed more aggresive that usual.The theory is that the cold and wind only effects the fishermen not the fish.
The water coming out of the gates is from -32 feet. I do not think even these three days of freezing night will effect the temp of the discharged water more than a degree or two. One of the big fish attraction in the summer is the discharge water is much cooler with a higher oxygen content than the lake surface or lower river. (Liberty)
Now frozen rod guides, watery eyes, a beard full of frozen slobber and aching fingers might seem to effect the fish but it is normally just an excuse for being a wimp.
