    Has anyone fished Rattlesnake in the last few weeks? If so, how'd that work out? I'm considering it as this weekend's anecdote to my "Lone" addiction...

    Not me, but I was thinking the same thing to save ferry fee. I would go this Friday, but got Dr and then going to see Peter White at Jazz Alley. Weather looks better today then Thu or Fri. Will have to check weekend since I will be allowed only 1 day.

    Hi Mark, I'll either be in a camo float tube or a large blue inflatable. Hope to be there about 10ish. Look forward to meeting you.

    I tried RSL two Wednesdays ago and got skunked. There was some ice on the lake by the boat launch and it was pretty cold. But, that was my first time at RSL, and I'm not a very experienced fly fisherman, so somebody that know's what they're doing might do better than I did. But it's a gorgeous lake and I'll be back! See you guys out there...

    Looks like the weather pattern is still showing some improvement for Sunday. Target is 51 degrees and partly cloudy. Hope to be there about 10:00am.

    Also, 20% chance of precip and 5mph southern breeze. Sounds like perfect conditions! :thumb:

    I'll be there 8-ish.

    Maybe another member will chime in, I'm fairly sure a gelb bespaclted canine fished it this week. I could be wrong though.

    I expect reports.

    We pounded it hard with only 1 to hand on Wednesday. Think it had to do with the full moon. Note to self, dont fish around the full moon. A week ago the fishing was decent and many fish middling but last week was slow. Marking Alot of fish down at 32 feet but all the tactics proved to be unsuccessful. It should be fishing well today or tomorrow.
