The Winds of Change

If you look at the posts on here for this month it is easy to tell that the river has been on fire for the month of July. Big fish are everywhere and not only are they eating but they have been stupidly aggressive about it. All good things must come to an end, or at least slow down. Instead of catching fours and fives we were working hard for ones and twos. The moral of this story; make the best of your chances because they are only going to give you a few.

There are three bad winds on the Ottawa River; south east, south, and north. It doesn’t mean you can’t catch fish with these winds but it means you have to recognize the weather that usually comes in on these winds is very unstimulating and un-motivating for your ‪#‎muskies‬. It means you need to adapt.

Blue skies, high pressure, and the coldest day of the week are other conditions often present when these winds arrive. Same thing, your muskies are not active. They are laying on the bottom getting chewed on by lamprey eels. And since ‪#‎musky‬ fishing isn’t rocket surgery, my advice is to fish close to the bottom.

Troll deep and close to the bottom.

If you are fishing in 2 or 3 feet of water you are close to the bottom. Blue skies make muskies go shallow.

Here are some fish memories that went back to CT and PA this week caught on these techniques
