We took a break from crappie fishing this morning and gave the trout a try at Blakley Dam, below Lake Quachita. The lake below the dam, Lake Hamilton, is still 9 feet below normal so the river is very low. My son Jeff and I managed 2 limits but they were small.
Met some really nice folks from nearby Jesseville and they caught a good mess on 1/8 oz. Roostertails.

I take a break every now and then to go on the white river and drift. It seems like the trout always cooperate. Now if I could ever find a way to cook them so I can stand to eat them.

I have never actually eaten any trout but hear they run a close race with butter soaked cottonballs....

I am afraid we might be hijacking the Bandit's thread here...but, the best way I have ever found to eat them is to let the guides cook them for a shore lunch. It is either that or you got to have a hang over;... not sure which.
I haven't been on a guided trip since I quit drinking.

Hey it looks like ya'll had fun slabbandit. I have fished the river below Blakley with a few of the Arkansas boys pulling shad raps against the current and loaded the boat with trout and a few walleye. My wife went with us one day and she told me that she kinda liked trolling, it was the first time she had done that type of fishing.

THose are some nice ones!!! Best way to cook them is in Tin foil with butter, garlic and some lemon juice wrap them tight and keep flipping the packets on a grill.
