Trout Fishing with Sasser's


I trout fishing below Wolf Creek Dam from December to the end of April. We catch trophy sized rainbow, brown and brook trout.
The current state record brook trout was caught aboard my boat. These trips are weather dependent because my river boat is uncovered and we will be in the elements. In a normal trip below the dam 4 to 6 different species of fish are caught.

December Thru April


Several Walleye, Saugers, and Stripers are caught some days but that typically changes daily.
Trout fishing rates are the same as striper fishing but there is a limit of 3 people plus me because boat is smaller and we will be casting instead of trolling.

Rainbow, Brown, Brook Trout


I fish out of a 20 ft Lowe rough neck which is very river worthy and stable. I typically use 8 pound test and limber spinning rods for great trout action.
The limit on trout is 5 per person but there are several size limits and slot limits in place. This is not a trip to fill the freezer because we turn most of the trout loose because of restrictions and the true trophy presence of some of these trout.
