Thought I'd try the Phillipson with its new old Hardy Marquis at Lenore. No trout love but fun to be out. The reel might be tad big for the rod but I think they're going to be the pairing I use.
I wonder what's happening with this lake? Really strong winds last night and it seems the wind may have stirred up rotting vegetation from the shallow bottom. Lots of floating mats of rotting plant matter. Next there will be big mats of this crap floating up and down lake. Just about the time the damselfly nymphs are migrating and the trout follow them in (or used to or I just missed it or......isn't that why they call it fishing)?
Sorry if it posts twice, internet is acting weird.. Caught two of these in a lake that doesn't have them listed. Always a fun surprise. I hear WDFW is into randomly throwing these tiggers out there in little lakes.
