40+ yrs since my first trip to the Mile. I try to fish it once a year for trout to grill/smoke. We were fortunate and missed the worst storms/wind. The conditions were actually ideal for Eleven Mile. Bugs were minimal as slight winds and sprinkles knocked them down. Our success came prior to dusk and after dark. With one nice fish in the morning. Fish can be caught shallow in water 5' and less! These trout are feisty and offer a decent tug. Not too many others out as our efforts were on a Sunday eve.
