Hey Sportsfans!

It is shaping up to be a true gold rush in the river this weekend. Trucks/trailers will be lined up for miles along the highway. The gold… a walleye so large that most would think it is a fisherman’s tale when mentioned.

A few of Ballard’s guides decided to join in on the fun yesterday (4/4). Here is what they had to say:

– Water was open under the bridge in town
– Fishing was best in 9-11′ of water
– Water clarity remains good & water temperatures are hovering in the 40s
– The majority of fish caught were 18-23″

Temperatures should soon creep into the 60s. Will we see boats in front of the resort this weekend? Only time will tell.

In other news, Ballard’s kitchen continues to serve bar baskets and drinks on the weekends. “We have rockin’ food specials and we are ready to serve!”
– Cheryl, Kitchen Manager
