I drove a long logging road into a small brookie lake in the skagit drainage last week. Almost a fish a cast 6-9".

I fished two wet flies: a #14 soldier palmer as a dropper and a #14 bibio on the tail. As tends to happen on overabundant brook trout lakes I got most of the fish on the dropper. Those classic scottish and irish wet flies work on high lakes! There was snow in the shaded areas around the lake but it's melting fast.

A 7'6" Phillipson Peerless 5 weight worked like a charm.
