Below the Dam in the Willow Valley area Melissa Hussman landed a nice channel cat. She was fishing from shore using anchovies to land her 6.38 pound cat at 27 inches. Yep I had to get in on this photo showing this striper that our local angler Tony Smith brought in. What a great catch this striper weighed in at 32.06 pounds and was 48 and 3/8 in. Tony and his girlfriend were out riding their jet skiis and had stopped at a beach for a few minutes. While looking out over the water Tony noticed his girlfriend had been pointing at a fish in the water. When he looked out and saw the fish Tony went over to some anglers that were fishing for smallmouth bass and he asked if he could use the pole there that had a glide bait on the line. The rest is history his site fishing and experience paid off and landed his biggest fish as of yet. I am hearing of limits of stripes in all up and down the river shore and or boat has been producing well. The stripers are ranging in size from about 1 pound on up. These stripers in the rainbow trout size are easy to prepare and can make some great fish fry's.
