(this was yesterday). I golfed in the morning so I didn't get on the water until about 2:30 I'd say. Golf was wet windy and cold, fishing was warm and pristine. I met a super nice guy in the parking lot who noticed my sorry excuse for a chironomid box and he hooked me up with a few that worked well for him. I'm horrible with names so I forget his, but he was awfully nice. I threw some of the chironomids he gave me (they were really small, redish ones) and I was getting some takes and hook ups but didn't land a single one. Amateur hour in the SE corner of pass lake was in full session. Later in the day (probably 6:30, but who knows) the surface activity really picked up so I started throwing some plain old adams since they looked a lot like the hatch that was enjoying a free ride on my boat. Caught the first brown of my life on the surface after a few casts: After the brown I had no more strikes for a bit despite a good number of swirls all around me. I threw on an intermediate poly leader to fish the adams just below the surface and it was game on. Slow random strips and I was getting into some fish. Another guy rowed up when he was on his way to the launch and helped me out even more. I noticed he had it pretty dialed in where he was fishing earlier so I was glad he came by. He gave me more tips than I can remember, threw me some flies, and helped me understand why I was probably missing a lot of fish just a few hundred yards away from him. Anyways, the whole purpose of this post was that I'm going to be out there as much as possible so if you see a blue scadden with yellow/tie-dyed oars come say hello. I trade beer for fishing advice. 1 over par in the morning 1 brown trout in the evening. Pretty sweet day.
