Both of us caught a lot of fish, lost count, on dry attractors, trailing to emergers, & midge imitations all day. Morning was the most productive time. #20-22 grey RS2's were best. Still early in the year, but beetles also hooked fish. Evey fish was big & girthy. ~ Rick Berne -- May 20th, 2016

Very windy but still my best day ever at this wonderful lake. I've been here several times and seen dozens of fish cruising but only caught a small handful. Yesterday we "cracked the code." We had 20+ between 9:00 and 2:00, when my guest had to leave. I had several more in the next hour. A random few were caught on a tan ice cream cone, a Chromie, a white RS2, a stimulator and a leech. But the winning combination was a brown foam wing RS2 on top with a zebra dropper. Two brookies around 10" each, one small rainbow (about 6") and the rest rainbows between 16" and 19". Very strong, healthy and well-fed fish. I can't wait to go back and use the float tubes to cover more water and search for the Donaldsons. ~ Larry G. -- May 14th, 2016

We arrived at 6:00am, hoping to beat the weather... Temp 36 degrees. Fish where rising early and we took advantage. We caught probably 10-12 apiece up until 10am... The ranged from 12" to 18" Rainbows, Steelhead and few Brookies. We were all over the place looking for the right rig, Streamers, Amy's Ant, Ant, Stimmy's, eggs, red midges and 24 mayfly dry's. At 10am, it then rained, snowed and sleeted continuously until we submitted around noon and went home. The weather put the fish down hard... Cold to the core on this one. Sometimes pays to get up early. ~ George Schmidt -- May 7th, 2016

Short but productive day on A-15. I packed up the wife and kids and ran up to Silver Valley. It was an overcast day with some gusty winds, but the winds didn't alter fishing. My day started with the kids telling me there were a bunch of fish on the east end "flats". The fish acted similar to the prior posts, they would shoot in a pod from one side to the other. I threw a bunch of different dry flies, once they landed on the surface they would head right for it, but there were very few takes. Finally a group of 5 went by and one 17-18" finally slammed a purple Amy's Ant. I fished dark streamers as well, had a strike but missed it. As we were leaving a put on a Golden Stone and immediately got one off the ledge by the entry sign. It was a nice fat Donaldson that was 19". All throughout the day there were multiple fish jumping out of the water in the middle of the lake, kids loved it. Great place to take the family! ~ Brad Rettig -- April 25th, 2016

The lake seemed to have more heavy moss in the lake that was different from when we fished it earlier this year. Hoppers and midges attracted smaller fish. The larger fish in the East End of the lake were difficult to attract with streamers. Beautiful day with great fall colors. ~ Stephen Merman -- September 30th, 2015
