White River Fishing Report brought to you by Hosanna Hills Fishing Guides
Contrary to rumors, I’ve not gone ‘toes up,’ just been too lazy to write a report for the last three days. Fished on Saturday at White Bass Cove and was ‘skunked’ on the white bass. The whites are pretty much the same in the lake as they are in the river; that is, some days they are there and the next, they are elsewhere. If you are fishing from the bank, you cannot go search for them.
Sunday, we fished on the river near Beaver Dam and began catching trout just when the Corps blew the horn to generate….three hours before the posted schedule. That is not a complaint, since the schedule is subject to change without notice. It would have been nice if they had blown the horn before they began their generation instead of after since we were fishing 100 yards below the dam. At least we saw the water begin to come out from under the dam. They did sound the warning horn about 4 minutes after they began to generate.
This morning fishing in the river near the dam started off ‘hot’ for the first three trout. Within 10 minutes, three were on the stringer. After that, it took 40 minutes to catch the last two. Guess the fish needed a coffee break! So did I, so it was back to the Hosanna Hills fish cleaning station. There were no other fishermen on location for the time I fished this morning. Since it should be a great day to fish, if you are not working, go wet a line!
Generation for today is scheduled from 3 through 5 PM. The high temperature for the day should be 77º F. under mostly cloudy skies with a chance of afternoon thunder showers. The winds are from the SSE at 8 MPH.

White River Fishing Report for 5-20-16
Sam launched from Bertrand Launch Ramp at 11:30 this morning with an Iowa crew of two aboard. Initially, they trolled with Colorado spoons and were rewarded with a couple of trout before they reached Spider Creek Island. Because the bite was a bit slow, they switched to power bait and spent the remainder of the trip catching really nice trout in the Spider Creek area. There is a great quantity of bait between Bertrand and Spider Creek, so, if your fishfinder screen goes black or fills up with a bunch of ‘static,’ it is merely shad minnows. As you can tell from the picture, the trip was quite a success, leaving everyone happy! This trip, like my last one, added five fish to the guide’s larder.
Spoke with a guide who had spent part of the early morning at White Bass Cove catching, guess what, white bass. He showed me the cooler full that he had caught on floating bass lures. Guess where I plan on being in the early AM.
Generation for tomorrow is expected to be only for 5 PM. The high temperature for tomorrow should be around 70º F. with ENE winds of 4 MPH. The day is expected to begin sunny, turning partly cloudy in the afternoon. http://www.hosannahillsfishing.com

Lake Forest Cabins Fishing Report
According to JIm and Sam of www.hosannahillsfishing.com
Fishing Report for 5-12-16
We fished Tuesday, Wednesday and this morning in various locations along the river. Tuesday, we fished on the river downstream from Houseman Access and found no bait in the river until about 1 mile downstream toward Beaver. We did catch trout on a Rapala CD-5, black on silver. Wednesday. seemingly out of nowhere, the bait arrived along with a mess of white bass. They were concentrated close to Blue Springs, and our friend Carl, (also a guide), showed everyone ‘how it is done.’ (See picture) While Carl was fishing near Houseman Access, Sam and I fished closer to Beaver Dam and caught trout that were in the 12 1/2 inch range. The bite was on the lighter colors and was a bit slower than it had been earlier in the week. Today, we put the bait aside and fished with Colorado 1/4 oz. spoons. Although we did not pick up trout, we did catch a walleye at the “River Access 1” ramp near Beaver Dam. Looks like a perfect day to try your luck; but keep in mind that generation is scheduled from 3 through 5 PM.
The high temperature for today is predicted to be a wonderful 74º F. under mostly sunny skies, with NNW winds at 10 MPH.
