Property Log Book Comments

I fish here a lot during runoff and it never disappoints. All morning fish were rising or cruising just below the surface. They readily ate small emergers and, oddly, SJ worms suspended or stripped just below the surface. As the day warmed up the fish went deeper but responded to tan leeches pretty well. We never did figure out what dries they were eating. ~ Larry G. -- June 18th, 2016

We returned here and tried to pick up where we left off two days before. It started well but slowed around noon. Perhaps the combined effect of crystal clear water and bright, penetrating sun put the fish down. We did manage to get a few in the afternoon on tiny winged dries and a small (#16) PMX. ~ Larry G. -- June 18th, 2016

The day was beautiful and the fishing was great. I met member Ray who'd gotten there earlier and was picking them off from his float tube. Increasing wind kept me from launching mine. Eventually, Ray and I fished the banks together. The rainbows eagerly ate black midges (similar to Zebras) and, as the day progressed, started eating dries too. We had a lot of fun in the main lake but the shallower East end pond, where we could sight fish, was perfect for dry-dropper action. I walked the perimeter and got fish (all bows) on the East, South and North sides. I saw Ray hook up and land some but didn't keep count of his. I had over a dozen in the net with nothing smaller than 16" and some much larger. ~ Larry G. -- June 3rd, 2016

Rather cold day (45-55*) with an even colder steady breeze. No surface activity to speak of all day. Most all fish were taken on a size #10-12 Green conehead wooly bugger. We did not find any fish on the Western half shallows. They were all either along the North bank or in the middle and East in the depths. In total I think we netted 15-20 with a few more misses along the way. 2 Brookies, 10-15 rainbow/donalsons and 1 cutty. ~ Woodsie -- May 29th, 2016

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
