Lake John Resort Winner

Post By: Neyet Stalker      Posted: 6/3/2019 10:10:31 PM     Points: 5820    
I won the trip to Lake John Resort during the FXR Winter Giveaway. It was my first trip there, and we had an excellent time. A recent hatch (bugs are thick) slowed the bite. Some risers. No mosquitos yet! Conditions changed often, the weather was mostly nice. Tried several spots around the lake during daylight hours to no avail. Our only success came after dark. The lake is a few weeks from popping and the best bite is yet to come. The accommodations are remodeled and the owners were nice providing everything for a comfortable stay. The rooms are nice! Lots of free camping spots all around the lake (first come).
Its a long scenic drive but well worth the effort! Thanks FX and Lake John!

My wife and I paid for our daughter and family to stay in the adjoining unit. I taught my youngest (4 yrs) grand daughter to cast. My son in law caught his PB trout! FYI boaters can boat all night long. Back to the grind. Hope to get out Neyet Stalking soon.
