Hinkson Slough – The trout have been active sporadically on the surface in the late morning till dark. Fluctuating temperatures has had little effect on the trout fishing but the bass have slowed down with the cool temps. The warmer weather has really help to improve the bass fishing in the late afternoon to evenings. Spin fisherman have reported bass up to 6 pounds using Senko worms and Mepps spinners. Fly fishermen in float tubes are having good success catching hatchery stocked trout (mostly 8-10”) using small midge patterns under indicators on floating lines. For those who don’t like the bobber, a small unweighted sheep creek special slowly retrieved is pretty hard to beat. Damsels and dragons should start to become active soon.
