First day of fall type fishing!

I made it out today to check out water temps at the local reservoir here at 3,500 feet in NE Oregon. I have been fishing creeks and high lakes, but the 40 degree AMs made me hopefull. The water temp was 67, not great but better than the 70s, so I gave it a try and the fish were very willing. The 30,000 planters from this year were running 8 to 10 inches and were kind of a pain in the rear, but three hour a fishing gave me 7 or 8 good fish and a bunch of ldr' the next months will yield some great fishing. The fish were mostly in 14 to 20 feet of water and wanted a purple wooly bugger today (because thats what was on the end of my line!)

Wow it's only getting in the 50's here in the "VALLEY" hope you do good at the "OTHER LAKE" also! I might have to come over sooner then I thought - "OH DARN" now your side needs some rain and the water should start boiling with fish. CAN'T WAIT!
