Back to Teal Wednesday w/ DFL and his new Force Fins (he likes 'em). Much nicer day weather-wize and fish-wize. Fished from about 12:45 to 4:30, just getting off when the rain started to get serious. Water temp was up six degrees in eight days to a much-more-comfortable 46+ degrees. A couple of other guys were on the water with us. Some midges (16-44's), but not a lot, were coming off. Larry got into a nice fish right off the bat: 22" bow on a Callibaetis dry in the SW corner, then caught two more later on. It took me about an hour and a half fiddling around with blood worms, soft hackles and midge emergers before I caught a really nice bow at the extreme NE corner. There were a number of fish swirling around and rising, working the shallows here, so I eased my way in among 'em (no one else had discovered this activity yet) and cast to a rise: sat, sat, sat and then twitched a bit and, BINGO!! fish on!! Pretty good fight, some nice reel singing. Took a #14 Partridge & Purple. It's sure fun when this is the result: This guy was harder than hell to hold on to (see 1st photo) & spilled over each side of my stripping apron, so I'm guessing about 25-27". A nice, beautiful slab of a rainbow. It was the only fish I caught. I'm not complaining...... This is Larry's last fish: We were at opposite ends of the lake when he caught that 1st fish on the Callibaetis, and he said he got a "selfie", so he'll have to post that shot.
