    I'm finally going to fish pass lake. I hear it can be a frustrating lake, but I am up for the challange. Anyone have any reports from the last week or so? I hear that this is the time of year to fish it. Plan on using the usual lake fare(chrono, buggers, etc.). I am assuming this will work...wish me luck!

    Fished it during the rainstorm on Saturday with a huge crowd. Most folks were fishing chronomids, although there was alot of surface feeding on what I wasn't too sure.:beathead: I did catch two though one of them a real lunker that I didn't net and get a measurement. Nothing trolling.... looks like most people were catching fish on chroni's. I may be there on Wednesday since the weather will be nicer and should see more casings in the water.

    I fished until dark last night in some cold rain with one tap on a deep bugger, i tried chrinos and multiple streamers with out a touch. But then again I have never had that much luck there. Good luck

    Seems like I could meet half the board in person if I just drove 5 minutes to the Pass Lake parking lot a couple times over the next few weeks!

    Ahhh, nice of you to say. But I don't think you guys want a straight-up greenhorn getting in your way. Give me a bit more time to learn without bothering anyone, then I'll be stoked to hang and shoot the s--t with folks.

    I was there on monday as well. It was fishing good from about 10am till about 1pm then it literally turned off. I left at 2:30 and hadn't seen anyone so much as set the hook the last 45 min I was out there. But all and all the fishing has been good with moments of great over the last two weeks. When you go think big chironos this time of year 10's and 8's in a variations of red, maroon, red-brown, and black.

    good luck
     
  12. I fished it on Saturday, had a great two hours from 10 to noon. Chirons under 13-15' of water. Excellent hatch coming off but it was dead from 2 on..prob. due to the dropped barometer and air temp, turned the hatch completely off. Good luck~
