I had a wonderful time Friday packing my float tube and gear up to this small lake along the chuckanut area near Bellingham. The first half of the trail is grueling! Had they not heard of switchbacks in they day they made this route? The trail eventually becomes manageable and a pleasant walk through the woods. I was in the water by 1pm and soon was distracted by two Osprey dueling it out over fishing rights I guess. It was interesting to watch since it was only me and the osprey. I finally settled into a shaded part of the lake where I had noticed some rises near the shore by some downed logs. I tied on a greenish stimulater #14 and soon was into fish. Six healthy rainbows all caught near shore in the shade and all on that one dry fly. I was surprised at the size of the fish! Healthy and fat and all in the mid teens. Much bigger then stocker fish I would have assumed to have caught. I had been up to this lake before a few weeks ago and caught 15 fish but most were in the 9 to 10 inch range, which was a great trip catching fiesty fish on my four weight. So it was a nice surprise. A great day.
