Any report on Elmer's Island as far as trout wise??
Looking to make a trip this weekend with this good weather coming up.

Its' about 45 days too early for Elmer's trout. They may be a little earlier this year than most because of such a mild winter, but not now

Fishinpox were you fishing the islands, or just the outside marsh? I have a camping trip to the islands scheduled for next weekend and I'm wondering I'm hoping we'll be in luck!!!

As mentioned earlier, it's too early for Elmer's to 'turn on'. That shoreline beach bite is my bag and historically the earliest it'll get hot is by Jazz Fest, another 5 weeks out provided the river levels etc. fall again and don't take a large rise beforehand. When it does crack open I will be in that number, until then, ARRIVE ALIVE!!!

I know it'll be slim pickins but we'll be camping on the island chasing reds by night and trout at first light. Just fishing plastics or did you test out the top water action? I must throw a topwater at sunrise!
