    What's the pattern of choice at the Crab Creek chain
    of lakes on opener? Also, does anyone know if camping
    in the parking lots is acceptable? I noticed last time
    at Nunnally, them bondo boys across the road, riding on their 4-wheelers and dune buggies were annoying. Do they make it up as far as Lenice?

    Anything that resembles a chironomid pupa.

    I've had good luck with dragon fly nymphs and after the weather warms up blue adult damsels have worked well and they are a lot of fun.

    Firstly, camping in the parking lot is okay and the off-roaders tone it down after sunset. As far as fishing goes, I was there opening weekend last year and my buddy caught 5-10 on a chironomid near the bottom. I caught zero using the same technique as well as casting-retrieving-trolling a woolley bugger. Finally, if you plan on using a float tube, I suggest you bring electric socks, pants, shirt, and hat.
