Lyle, Stan and Greg: Rufus Woods - 9/11

Since Rufus Woods is so close to Coulee Playland, a group of us headed over to the Seatons Grove launch on Monday. There were 5 other boat trailers at the launch. It appeared that one or two of those boats were fishing for triploid rainbows. We struggled in the morning and for much of the afternoon. The current was swift leading to lots of snags and tangled gear. At 530 pm, we only had one trout in the live well, but the evening bite allowed us to end on a good note. We finished the day with 6 walleyes and 6 trout. The walleyes were 22, 21, 21, 19, 17 and 16 inches. The trout were fat with beautiful pink meat.
