Fished Dry Falls on Sunday for a few hours. 6 fish ranging from 16" to over 20". Fished deep (long line chironomid in 23 feet) for a few hours in the morning with only one fish to hand. Moved into about 2-6 feet of water in the afternoon and that is where most of the fish seemed to be. Casting tight to the reeds (foot of water) with a callibaetis nymph (grey, size 16) caught all the fish. Stomach pump showed lots of small (size 18-20 pale green chironomids, a few grey, size 16 callibaetis, and a few immature dragonfly nymphs - size 14 - watery green). A chironomid hatch (adults about a size 16) came off later in the afternoon so chironomids may have payed off if I had of stuck with it. A few other guys on the lake appeared to be catching fish in all sizes (10 inches to over 20 inches) so it's nice to see a few different age classes of trout doing well in this lake. I hooked a nice rainbow and was bringing it in and I could see a large shadow following it to the boat. I have caught steelhead that had another steelhead following them as I played them, but this had always appeared to be one following the other as a result of the steelhead "pairing up" for mating. When the trout was over the net, I could see the fish following was a much larger brown trout. It looked like he was trying to figure out a way to get a piece of the struggling 18 inch rainbow. I released the rainbow and a few casts later caught what appeared to be the brown that was originally following. The brown ended up taping out at 23" and was the largest fish of the day. On a side note, there was a comment on this board a few weeks back regarding the poor fight that Lahontans put up when hooked. Someone said they would rather catch a rainbow from dry falls than a large lahontan from lenore. I must say that all of the rainbows I caught hardly fought at all. They were large fish (triploids), but they were all in the net (on a 5 weight) in about 3 minutes. In comparison; I did a lake fishing trip in BC a few weeks back and was into the backing on fish under 20 inches many times, (both kamloops and blackwater strain). One fish (that I never saw) had me into the backing in seconds and then broke me off on the first run (I didn't want to touch the reel it was burning so fast). I have had kamloops rainbows jump in the boat when hooked. I have yet to have any fish in WA stocked lakes fight like this and am beginning to wonder about the quality of fish in the WA triploid stocking program. It appears there is a definite tradeoff - larger fish that don't fight, vs smaller fish with more diverse genetics that fight well ( I am familiar with the lack of success with stocking kamloops rainbows in WA lakes). Any other disgruntled triploid catchers?
