    Ira nice report.Glad to see someone was fishing. I hit a local stocker lake today,with some luck indicator fishing.But Just when I think I have it dial'd in the fish turn on me. I could see what depth they were at but just couldn't figure out what they were eating. Try and try again I guess.

    You think those fly fishers are honing their scouting abilities???

    I was just talking to a buddy yesterday about that B lake. I found the same thing a couple of years ago, fished hard for a bit with nada. Too bad, I remember one banner year where is pulled (2) 26" fish out of that place. Also had stellar days.

    Thanks for the report.

    Stillwater fishing is so adicting! I cant stop thinking about it,the things I did right,the things I did wrong,how do I solve this problem? I've tye'd 8 dozen fly's in the last 2 weeks. I think im going crazy! Do I take the pram or the tube ,do I indicator fish or fish an intermediate line? I close my eyes at night and see bobers going under. My family thinks iv'e lost my mind,bless there heart's they put up with me. I love this time of year, it ranks right up there with opening of upland season. My wife knows that when those time's of the year come around if I can't catch it or shoot it i've got no use for it!
