Default To nice of day to not go fishing

A buddy and I decided this weather can't last and we were not ready to hang up the tubes just yet, so we went fishing.
We got on the water at 9:30 and fished until 2:30 with mostly calm winds and air temps in the 30's & 40's. We used fast sinking lines and size 8 bead head leeches in brown, black, and plum. We also used some size 8 bead head buggers in black/orange/pearl and black/silver. We picked up two small (11" - 12") cutthroats and the rest were tiger trout between 12" and 18".

The water temperature was 37-39 degrees and the visibility in the water of about 4'. There was some skim ice when we arrived but by the time we left it was gone.

The fishing wasn't fast but the weather was wonderful for the middle of November.

Very nice, and I have to admit that seeing that skim ice does my heart good too. The hard deck is not far off!

Thanks for the report.

Hope you weren't too rough on the redds.

thanks for sharing the pics Tom. I never made it over there this year, even though W2U kept having good outings. Maybe I'll hit it with some ice?

Two years ago we were down there in January and the bay just north of the boat ramp was open water and the rest of the reservoir was still frozen. There were some guys ice fishing near the dam and they caught mostly splake. We were in our tubes and all we caught were tigers. It's been a couple of years since we have caught any splake out of there. I guess we need to change up our fly selection to catch them. It was nice to see that the DWR stocked some cutthroats this year.

It was my turn today. I thought it was too windy to flycast, so, based on some intel, I went for fish tacos instead.

Score!

I hope you've got a big family because with that mess of fish you could open a taco stand.
