Fished the DPR at two spots today - Rt 120 and at Independence Grove.

Started at 120. Water was about normal level but quite stained. Threw mostly spinners and a couple of other baits and zero action. Decided to see if the trail went to Independence Grove. After a 40 minute, 2.5 mile walk, I was IG. Fished the spot I did well at last week. But the exact spot did not exist as the water has receded so much. BUT, the spot I normally fish there was back. Had a small northern pike of about 5 inches hit a spinner but that would be it. Walked back to 120 and fished till sunset with nary a hit.

Could not believe how dead the action was. Oh well, at least I got some good exercise!

Yea I went to the same spot I was on the other day where I was getting several hits of northern pike. The spot didnt exist no more either. SO I walked down from Irving to Higgins and fished couple spots there and there with a spinner and did not get anything. Oh well hope next time I do. I have just gotton started this year fishing the DPR and hope to catch first northern on it soon.
