The spawn is late this year.
I suspect a lot of folks who showed up in mid november to fish the spawn were a little surprised. Not until a few days after Thanksgiving did I see a lot of fish on the reds. The spawn is just getting started and fishing should be good for those who brave the cold. There should be lots of eggs in the water before to long. Once there are a lot of eggs in the water there is no need to fish solely on a spawning red to catch fish. Fish all over the river will begin to eat eggs. Good luck and dress warm.
