Tackle Talk for the week of October 13

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

The Adam Bower Dam bags have been deflated and the river is low and clear. The park service will probably be putting the bags up and down every once and awhile to check them. There are some walleyes being taken however slow during the day. After dark there is some action at some of the popular locations. Floating and small countdown Rapalas and Rebel lures in black/silver, blue/silver, and other minnow colors are best. Smoke and motor oil plastic minnows with both paddle tail and curly tails are also working well. Smallmouth bass fishing has been fair but they seem to be scattered and anglers are covering large areas to catch some nice fish. Jerk baits are working well like Rogues, Jackals, X-raps, Husky Jerks, and Cotton Cordells in natural finishes are taking some nice smallmouths. Large and medium live shiners are also working well for all the above species and flathead catfish near the dams. Muskie action is picking up at the popular areas in the deeper holes. Large plugs and plastics are a good choice for this time of year.
