My Dad and I decided to do another overnight trip up in the hills, but this time in search of some big wild cutties. After a long and tough hike in with our tubes, we made it to our little lake, and both of us got into fish immediatley. Long story short, after fishing two lakes, my Dad ended up with 10 fish (9 cutties and one brown) with his biggest being a 20in male cuttie. I ended up with 7 fish (5 cutties, 2 browns), with my biggest cuttie at 20in, and my biggest brown at around 17in! We both got the majority of our fish on a #6 BH bugger with a #14BH hares ear behind it, and it most of the fish were sitting in 10+ft of water eating the nymph on a super slow retrieve. All fish were released. Tight lines, Rob

Thanks for the offer, but I can just make it on Sunday. My dad has some things going on on Sunday, and he wouldn't be able to stay overnight. I'm riding down with Kev-O though, and we'll be there bright and early to go catch some fish! Also, Thanks everyone! It was a blast of a day, and one I won't soon forget!

The lakes are up high enough that they just iced off about 3 weeks ago. There is a tiny (about a foot wide) little stream connecting the few lakes in the area, and because it is just a lake to lake creek, the lakes stay at a fairly set level year round. I can tell you that all of the other creeks in that area are muddy, blown out, and impossible to fish.
