    Can't do it, it's Lincolns birthday. Besides, I think my wife is dragging me the the garden show. Someone please shoot me!

    It is possible. I'm helping my wife with a garage sale Saturday, so I will probably be owed time for good behavior! While we have been on Pass at the same time a couple times, we've never met and I would like to fish with you! Rick

    I have the same rod. Seems like it would be a little much for Pass lake fish, but it might be the perfect rod for 20+ foot leaders.

    I thought getting sick was something you did to get out of work.....so you could go fishing.

    Whats wrong with you people? :clown:

    Pass Lake newbie, here. But I got three yesterday trolling the west edge with a black Seal Bugger and golden olive Carey Bugger. Started at 2pm but most of the action was in the twilight after sunset. Saw one other boat.

    Mark you can either take the mukilteo ferry or drive around Pass lake to make it to Lone. If you are in Everett it is much better to take the ferry if you want to fish Lone.

    I'm sorry Ira, do you need a state park pass now to fish loan? I know you need one for pass, a togo pass. Mark:

    Go today, Jason, if you can. Weather will be better for a newbie this afternoon; rain starts tomorrow about 3PM.

    Hit Pass today between 10:00 and 3:30. Weather started out windy and it seemed to change direction every few minutes. Settled down nicely in the afternoon.

    End up with nine fish to hand as well as a handful of misses.
    All my fish came from 16-18 feet of water. Fish were in nice shape and pretty active after hook up with several jumping multiple times. Seemed everytime I moved I hooked up then it would go dead. It really died off for me after 2:00 or so.

    Best fly today was a red thread body, silver wire and white bead.
    Also got fish on a snocone, brown with red butt and a micro brown San Juan worm. I didn't see one bug schuck or hatch all day but did see two fish rise. The few fish I pumped had lots of Daphnia, one bloodworm and one minnow or shiner.

    Nice day on the water overall. Here are a couple pics from today.
