Who Went: Me
With the warm weather recently, I figured today may be the day to break this year’s walleye curse up at Deer Creek Reservoir. As usual I figured wrong. I first tried the Wallsburg inlet mainly throwing a swimbait rigged weedless so that it wouldn’t get snagged in the shallow weedy conditions. I did have a few bites, but I racked it up to small trout that couldn’t find the weedless hook imbedded in my swimbait.
Unsuccessful and deflated I headed to the Middle Provo to try my luck there. On my first cast with a lipless crankbait I hooked up with a feisty rainbow trout. At least I didn’t get skunked.
I left while there was still some daylight and headed back to the Wallsburg inlet. I casted my swimbait all around the inlet until dark without a bite. Final tally this spring… Walleye 3, Chris 0. Luckily it’s time to pursue bass and I can forget that walleye exist the rest of the year.
