September 30, 2017 - Piute Canyon

E-mail Print PDF

Just returned from a San Juan trip. I ran back uplake to see of the big boils were still going in Neskahi Bay.  Unfortunatetly, no boils were found.  We were able to troll up a few stripers and bass and then catch more on spoons. We did find a few small groups of stripers in Neskahi Bay and caught more on spoons.  The best fishing was found in deep water at the mouth of Piute Canyon where we met up with Dave Doris and his friends who were hauling in lots of stripers on spoons. We joined them and caught many adult (3-5 pound) healthy fish. We tried it again on Saturday morning and quickly caught another 20 fish from 9-10 AM.  Then we had to leave.

Best fishing was found on Friday. It seemed to slow down some on Saturday.   It appears stripers are moving from spot to spot depending on where they find shad. They eat their fill and then move on.  Piute was great but lots of fish were caught. I am not sure how long that spot will hold up.  Spooning was surely the best technique.
