    Had a awesome day on the Yak and Lenore. Hit them both on the same day!

    The Yak was windy in the AM. We brought the drift boat, but we decided to wade downstream on Umtanum as the ridge provided some protection. The AM provided steady action on small GRHE, but it was about 1:00 PM when tha action begun. There was an incredible BWO hatch! Slurp, Slurp, Slurp! Many fish came to hand for the fellows I was fishing with; less for me! It was fun to be part of the action, even as a bystander! This 1:00 PM hatch seems to be a pattern for the Yak right now. Get over there! We then set off to Lake Lenore. It didn't disappoint with many fish caught stripping leach patterns and a few on chronomids. The streamers provided great hits and great fights. Those Lahontons are burly boys and girls. Lots of action, BWO hatch, big fish, good friends; you can't beat a day like that!!!!

    Chilly was a good word for the day!

    The big guy was at Lenore. Anil did catch a great rainbow; I'd guess 19" on the Yak. Between Corey and Anil, they landed around 25-30 fish. I landed less, how many I do not care to discuss. :thumb:

    It's white foam. The alkalinity in Lake Lenore produces this white foamy stuff. The same is true of Soap Lake. I believe that's how it got it's name.

    So with fishing being slow for you compared to the others, i'm wondering, did you catch that fish or did one of the others let you hold this fish for them? :D great trout.

    Smart A**! I did pretty well at Lenore. If you get a big fish, keep it alive and call me for a shot, I will travel!

    If you go to Lenore, you won't need a boat. Go to the North end, wade out to mid-thigh, and you'll be in the zone!
