The Lake has been doing pretty well though to fill in my time with a very good Damsel fly hatch around mid day to get the rainbows in a feeding frenzy. This is my attempt to imitate the real thing that has worked pretty well so far as long as the wind stays down. I usually just walk the shore line or use docks to cast to the cruisers looking for a morsel.
Once in awhile, my friend Bruce will offer me a ride in his McKenzie drift boat to reach more further out fish. I met Bruce many years ago when I stopped to check out this guy fishing from the shore line with his trusty Black Lab buddy. He thanked me for stopping for he hadn't talked to a human for a couple of days so he enjoyed my inquistive company.
And of course, there is Louie, our good neighbor still going strong at 87 or 88 years of age. I think he is in better shape this year!! He is our caretaker for the rental house and a good buddy as well.
Below is the decent result from the lake - a decent rainbow that fought well.
