Crater lakes

Hiked into the crater lakes just outside of rollinsville today. The hike in isn't to bad. The first two miles are fairly easy with the last mile being tougher. I fly fished the whole time and managed 8 8-12 inch brookies in two hours. All were caught on dries, they seemed to like the humpy the best but also caught some on caddies and parachute Adams. It was a great day and definitely beats working.

Good for you buddy. I'll be up that way the week after next hoping for some cutts.

That's one of my favorite places to go. It gets a lot of traffic in the summer, so it's best to go on a weekday if you can. The water is so clear that is a lot of fun to watch a fish approach and take a dry fly.
