    I'm finally going to fish rattlesnake lake tomorrow. Has any one been out there recently, how's it fishing? And what are the Regs?

    I have no idea how it is fishing but the first thing you should do is get a copy of the regs. Doesn't make much sense not to have them, plus, they are availalbe on-line so no excuses.

    Yes true if you are fishing any water without first reading the regs your plain wrong. But... its catch and release and selective gear rules. Fish are holding deep. Go with a full sink slow and deep. Small nymphs and small leeches work. Soft hackles as well. You may see many fish risding but getting them on a dry there is very difficult. Bring an anchor wind is gnarly there.

    I fished rsl before Christmas. Lake was low but still had three hours fishing with 10 to hand and at least that many misses.

    would you be able to get a boat trailer down the ramp, or is the water below the rocks?

    Thanks, I plan on taking my 3wt with floating line and maybe my 6wt with intermediate line. I tied up a bunch of beadhead mohair leeches, I figured I would be slow trolling that's how I have been nailing the hawgs at my local lake

    Dick,
    The water level is fine. Fished two weeks ago and the water is actually on the rise.

    The weather isn't so great so it looks like this trip is a bust
