    32'? How deep is RSL?

    Looking forward to trying it. Bummer it didn't fish better.

    I didn't think it was that deep but then again maybe it is. I'll let you know tomorrow evening how it's fishing.

    Tight lines.

    Been around the lake, in parts 50'+ the water was especially high from all the rain that we've been receiving, and as previously mentioned the ramp and the sign are mostly covered by water. If you Chironomid fish, make sure both your anchors have at least 60'+ of rope.

    60+! I don't think I'll be anchoring in that. I once anchored in 50' but that was an excercise in futility but man the bugs were popping there.

    More rope huh.

    Well, if you fish places in B.C. you'll learn that the big fish are caught in 40+' of water routinely if thermocline, ideal mud interface, temperature, and comfort of fish feeding actively in deep water. We do much of our fishing in deep water especially in the heat of the summer and security from predation. Not to say this is always the case, but some of the best stillwater fisherman that I know and fish with are deep water experts.

    I guess most the lakes I fish are no deeper than 35 feet or so.

    Mark, it was a pleasure meeting you today and thanks for the flys. I managed to hook up with two nice 12 inchers with the blue fly.

    Tight lines.

    Glad it worked for you. Not sure when you left. Fish were active yesterday all day long, with the great weather. Using a neighbors pram was tough since it was not setup for me the way I would like. I will hit it again this week or weekend. Hope to see you again.

    Last Sunday I measured a lot of water in middle of the lake at 56 feet.

    Hi Maryfish, I'll be there as well and look forward to meeting you. I'll have a camo float tube.
