    You can still come down, crash with me and fish it.

    Gentlemen,

    I fished Lone Lake on Monday. The weather was beautiful with temps reaching 65 degrees. The fishing was "Red Hot" from 10-2. Fished Large Chiros the entire time on the far side of the lake and caught and released over 30 fish with one just over 21". I only caught 2 small fish with all others around 18-19 inches. A great day. I don't think it matters how many people are on the lake. When the fish are biting and you are dialed in, you will catch fish. Have fun!!

    Sounds like a candy cane for trout! I want to see it. Any Pictures?

    I think the figuring it out is more fun than the catching. But without the catching the figuring out wouldn't be nearly as much fun!

    Hey Ron. I am using J-li e 100% flourocarbon, but I order it. You can likely do well with seaguar or some other brand of quality line. I recall this coming up for discussion in the stillwater forum, so you may find it with a search.

    See you on the lake!

    I like it when somebody new shows up that they don't rag on anybody here. Good report.

    I was never one to sit in any floating craft and watch a bobber. I never had the patience for it. If I wasn't moving I wasn't lake fishing. I prefer fishing Skinny water. Where I fish Skinny water is open year around.

    Yeah, I like crappy lakes that are stubborn about giving up fish. You get a lot of low fishing pressure days by yourself. If you don't see posts of your lake over at WashingtonLakes, then you know you got a winner.

    After a year or two, you then start landing the jumbo trout while softly giggling to your self.

    I thought this thread would go at least 5 pages:). I apologize Earthquake and everybody. The internet has made it just a little to easy for the masses, instead of having to put tons of time on the water and common sense, now you can google it. I grew up before internet and cell phones so I learned the hard way by trial and error and watching/talking with other anglers. Jealous; maybe a little bit! I give everybody permission to fish my lake:D. After I win the mega mega millions; not so much. Have a good opener.

    side note. i have not fished streamer/minnow patterns much in lakes. was thinking (i know) of using some Muddlers this year. would i be the only fly guy fishing these for our west side lakes, or do some of you use them also ?

    I've used Muddlers with success in many Westside lakes. Don't use them that much lately as they are (for me anyway) difficult to tie.

    Islander, good to hear that maybe i am not totally nuts. I have also used them in the past, but mostly for Crappie and small bass. my thoughts this year are to put more flash in some Muddlers and see if they will draw some interest from some trout that aren't interested in my leeches/buggers.

    Several years ago, I was fishing a lake with a friend out of a canoe with an electric motor. Whenever we would transit a stretch of water he would lose the muddler he negligently dragging behind us. We were cruising along at a pretty good clip, but a fish would manage to come out of nowhere and break his fly off.
