Met up with Nick Clayton this morning to fish Lake Martha near Warm Beach. Freezing fog met us at the lake. We got on the water around 8:30, and started paddling toward the nearest section of wooded shoreline. There were some patches of ice as we went further, and also some feeding trout along the edges. Nick proceeded to pick up a nice little brown, then a rainbow, using his simi seal mini-leech. Not a bad start to his first day at Martha. Surface action had died down, and insect activity diminished significantly just as the fog thickened enough to block the sun at around 9:30. After arriving at the destination, a slow hatch of chironomids started. No real action was to be found, and everything stayed slow until the hatched picked up. Around 11:30 the hatch picked up, size 14 or so midges, and before long Nick was into another fish. It proved to be a beautiful 18-19" rainbow, which was promptly released. Besides the occasional take, I wasn't having much success at all. I had some nice takes early on with a size 8 simi leech, but no solid hookups. By the time the sun had come out and my brain had thawed, it was time to leave. Any longer and our feet probably would have fallen off. We headed back to the launch and called it a day around 1. All in all, a great day on the water. It's always nice to take someone to a new piece of water, even if they proceed to skunk you. Also, it's awesome to fish with someone new for the first time. Thanks a bunch Nick for meeting up today, I had a lot of fun and look forward to doing it again soon.
