Yes itís still slow. The lake looks to be 10í down. Probably down another 3í from last Monday. Also very warm, surface temps were 62 @ 8:30 and 68 3:00 pm. The combination of falling water levels and warm water are pushing the fish to other locations than normal. The trout are lethargic and not feeding as much. I did find some top water action when the Callibeatis were popping around 9:30 - 10 am. However short lived and sporadic. I marked several fish in 14-15í of water that wouldnít eat our nymphs? All in all it was at tough bite yesterday.
On another note Iíve been seeing more and more bait fishing at Spinney. So many people donít know the regulations. Please educate them!

I'm beginning to think that people that don't have consistent registration of a fishing license for a good number of years need to take an online class and pass a test in order to get their license.
There's no excuse for ignorance of the rules when there are booklets everywhere and signs everywhere stating the rules. The CPW rules are also available on your phone. If you can't speak English to know what the rules are, take a class. Call the ranger and let them educate those people. They aren't doing it out of ignorance they just don't give a s___t. Resources like Spinney need to be protected from idiots or everyone will lose the privilege of fishing there.
