!!Listen to Big Phil's fishing report on KMAC 99.7 and KBCN 104.3 ESPN Talk Radio!!
The White River has had excellent fishing conditions. The lake has been maintaining right around the winter pool level and the generator flow has varied throughout the days. Having a guide is key to catching those memories for a lifetime. If the generators come on, take advantage of the rise it creates a very good bite for the Rouges, Spoons, Roster Tails, and other artificial baits. Trophy Browns are being caught at night when the generators are shut down. Come see me for details on this method. Don't be bashful give us a call have a memorable experience with Big Phil's Guide Service. Great fish are being caught right now. There is no better time to go on a guide trip than right now. The weather is changing but the fish are biting. If you catch a trophy fish we as guides prefer to keep the fish in the river so others can enjoy the experience of catching larger fish. A replica mount lasts longer and is no more expensive than a regular mount and it keeps trophy fish in the river for others to enjoy. Please promote catch and release.
