Decided to fish lower wire to prove to myself that there still were some trout there. Lower wire is my favorite area, and the biggest fish I’ve ever caught from Crane came outta there before the flood one year ago.

I focused heavily on the larger water to the back….and those fish were there. First cast landed a nice 12-13 incher. Walked slowly in the grass watching, and I could see many fish that I spooked. Perhaps 30 minutes later I targeted a slight riffle in some deep water and out came the best fish of the day, a good 15-16 incher. Moved up the stream and saw a guy looking for morels, but I didn’t see any today.

The rest of lower wire was productive with some smaller trout, but the holes which get fished a lot didn’t produce much. I did chat with I guy who mentioned that he was doing some trapping for the otters, so hopefully that will help out. I did fish the park and brought in several more fish but nothing noteworthy.
