Fishing With Steve Derbyshire

The King of Wheatley Fishing


Steve Derbyshire

It is a fun time of the year. the Big Boyz fishing tournament is going on. Me and my 2 boys always love it, catch a few nice fish and enjoy the challenge.
WE have a big problem though. If you are going to get high on the leader board, you will no doubt need to catch a bigger fish than “Derb” has put on the board.
He is without a doubt the Richard Petty of Wheatley fishing. We may get lucky aand get a bigger fish than Derb on the odd day but there is no way we will better him in the long haul.  It is sort of like beating Kyle Busch in a Nascar race. You won’t do it often but dam it feels good the odd time you do.

Wheatley Fishing for Rainbows and Walleye Fishing

Fish July 4 2017

Caught some fish 6 miles East in 50 feet of water. There were many fish high in the water again and large schools of baitfish on bottom with fish on those schools. Morning bite slow and a run just before noon.  Last night there was a screaming bite in that general area just before dark. A couple of fishermen  were reporting they couldn’t keep lines in the water but the fish were high and crazy and they couldn’t get them to the boat!




Steelhead Fishing Heating Up – Wheatley

Ty Bows July 2 2017

My son Tyler and grandson McInnus had a great day fishing out of Wheatley today. It appears the rainbows are coming into local waters in a big way. Looks like a great season is shaping up with this early start. We just need the weather to settle a bit now. The fish were holding very high in the water today and some nearly at the surface.

One bow I caught Wednesday last had a belly completely packed with mayflies. The fish were in the top 20 feet of the water that day also.




Wheatley Fishing Report

Fish Moving Into Wheatley

Reports are coming in about pickerel and rainbows being caught over a wide range out of Wheatley – straight south in 50 feet of water to 10 miles east in 64 feet of water. I have a few pictures of recent catches.

My daughter-in-law, Valerie Henricks can show those boys a thing or two about fishing. She works hard at it and enjoys fishing and hunting.
