I arrived at the lake at about 1:30 pm for an afternoon\'s fishing. The sky was partly cloudy and it sprinkled rain intermittently. The weed beds were very well established and rose to within a foot or so of the surface so I left my belly boat in the truck. There were lots of rises along the weed bed edges and the shoreline of the lake. The fish I spotted were all the way from minnow sized to 18 inches. There was no visible hatch but lots of dragon flies and midges about so I started with a dry Parachute Hopper and a #22 Black Beauty dropper. I had to shorten my dropper to about a foot to keep it from hanging up in the weeds. After no success I tried Damsels, Royal Wulff, Parachute Adams, and Stimulators on top, with Disco Midges and RS-2\'s on the dropper to no avail. Finally I just waded in amongst the rising fish to seine the water and discovered very small (#30?) black midges and an equally small white four winged fly. I pulled the smallest Griffiths Gnat and the smallest White Cahill from my box and dropped both beneath a large caddis so I could see them, and of course the only fish of the day took the caddis. That fish was a 16 incher that I would guess was a Donaldson Steelhead. He made quite a run and got hung up in the weeds. It took quite a while to work him free. I had nearly given up having thought he had broken me off. Near sunset the fish were so active that they were jumping totally clear of the water, but switching to Callibaetis nymphs, Damselfly nymphs, and Wooly Buggers stripped along the weed beds was ineffective. ~ George Franklin -- September 8th, 2013


Nice day with little wind. Like to say I caught 10 or so but can't. That many hooked up but only 3 to net. All bows to 17 inches. Three break offs and good fight on others--but only fished banks with small (20) caddis. Two fish on small bugger. Lots of acrobatics on water and large fish along banks. Nice spot!!! ~ Jameson -- September 2nd, 2013


Fished this property on August 29. Caught a couple of nice trout in the 15-17" range. Wind was calm most of the day and there was a rain shower that lasted over an hour. I have been a member of RMAC for over 15 years, and this is the least amount of fish I have ever caught on a Club property. I kept waiting for the fish to "turn on", but they never did. It was good to be in the mountains and to experience God's handiwork. I am happy RMAC has lakes the quality of this one. ~ Freed -- August 31st, 2013


We took my little nephews and we fished from 9;3o to about 1:00. We saw several big fish jumping out of the water. It was fun to see! We caught 7 really good sized rainbows all over 14 inches. A good time was had by all! ~ Kelly -- July 8th, 2013


Flies of the day were: Lead fly - #16 Royal Wulff, or anything other big, fluffy, looking Mayfly imitation; trailing fly #18-20 Callibaetis emerger, grey. Callibaetis hatch came off around 10:30am & was quite persistent for the rest of the day. Caught around 30 fish between the two of us, all dry fly fishing, enjoying perfect fly fishing weather conditions all day. Most of the Rainbows were around the 17" range, & even caught a couple small brookies. Lots of grass growing up from the bottom of the lake, so keep the rod tip high. ~ Rick Berne -- June 24th, 2013
