I was out on a local lake on Sat, excited to experience a day with warmer temps and blue sky with only a light breeze. When we arrived to the lake there were a few fish rising and a prolific hatch of midges that ranged between size 18-22. In my mind, I thought that we will finally have our first day this spring where the chironomid fishing will be terrific. My gf and I motored over to one of our favorite spots and dropped our anchors. The fish finder was spotting many fish between 12-22' down and the water temp was at 57 degrees. I tied on two of my favorite patterns for this lake and set my indicator at 22' and was anxiously awaiting my first take. After almost 30 mins with no takes and experimenting with different retrieves, I switched to a leech pattern on a sinking line. Within 5 mins, I had my first fish. A quick throat pump revealed what I was seeing hatching on the surface. This fish had what looked to be well over 50 micro midge pupae with some being lime green, brown with a red butt, some filled with gas and chrome bright and others almost black in color. I made a few more casts with the sinking line and leech pattern with no avail and decided to come back to fishing under an indicator. My gf who was fishing the same depth with the original patterns that I was using never had a bump the whole time I was experimenting with the sinking line. I tied on a small size 16 chromie and another small size 16 black chironomid and pegged it at the same depth where I saw fish holding on the fish finder. After almost an hour of fishing without a bump and again experimenting with setting my indicator at various depths, we decided to move. Move after move, never resulted in success. I switched between fishing my floating line and indicator to my sinking line and various leech patterns. I managed to scratch a few fish which all had been feeding on chironomid pupae but never did too well. Everyone else was scratching their heads with only a few catching the occasional fish. Anyone ever experience this and then eventually find the keys to the magic feeding lock later in the day? My thought is that there were a few storms that went over us that kicked up the wind and dropped the temps. Despite the fact that the warmer weather returned along with the sun, the barometric pressure changes might have affected their feeding behavior.
