"OMG" is what I said when I first got there....LAKE WAS A FULL POOL!!
"OMG" is what I said when my friend caught the first fish and it was 23" and HEALTHy!!
"OMG" is what I said about this beauty!!
First pic is of one of my 9 landed after missing one... A beautiful 22" Male Rainbow Great day for me and my friend...he landed 8 and missed 4
Second pic is my friends first fat 23" female rainbow..
fish fast retrieves to get some fish on mini leeches... scuds and chronomids(big) also worked by just getting jiggy with it...fished from 11 to 6:30 And YES all fished released....I want to catch them bigger!!
stratfish: Thank you!! Don't mind sharing...I was wading north shoreline by the bluffs also by the cove by the dam, dam side...that fly is a dark brown mini leech with silver/blue/gold sparkle tinsel...I have included a pic of a bigger version I also use....when that fly is wet, it gets very dark and very effective...it was how I processed the photo and how the lighting hits it is why it looks black...that white is silver tinsel
VINNIE: Thank you for the compliment for sure!! I enjoy fishing and I also enjoy catching...but my favorite part is, watching them swim off to give me another chance at fooling them
Thank you badextracab...have caught them bigger here with my biggest coming in at 28"...my first fish this year was 26" and just know there are bigger ones in there..and agree on the flies and lures only and keep a min to 2 trout and anything larger than 18" must be returned to the water
Anteroman: Hey Bill!! Cant wait till you get out here!! Fish quality has been great so far..catch and release 99.9 percent of the time....Spinney should open up good as well...76 percent full....wind looks terrible coming up so will wait for calmness....going out in my toon soon!! Take care!!
