The fishing was pretty good with many smaller trout caught...but what is this disease all over the fish? All the fish had small red spots on them...all over them

Water Temperature:
Fished Dowdy on 6/8 - 6/11 on overnight side. Wind was quite low with the exception of Sunday. Trout were very active feeding on dry flies almost all day. BWO-20 & 22 worked very well. Nothing too big 12-14\"(several browns as well). Caught a total of 20 on dries and 5 more on black zebra midge. I also tried small spinner bait and caught another 5. Excellent weekend of fishing. Far exceeded expectations and would go bacl again.

Dowdy Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Dowdy Lake at 44 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Dowdy Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
