Bill is the name not John
I agree. When started raining and I said I had forgot my rain coat, Lue spoke up and said he had an extra. All scholars and a gentlemans.Lue & Steve are a kick to fish with. Haven't fished with Bill.
You did well for a first timer.

I love all the daphnia in the lake QUOTE]
Sounds to me like folks have been having some really good fishing, including catching, despite lots of daphnia. Nice trout and really good pictures!
Daphnia perplex me but because folks were catching trout, I'd have to guess that the trout were not keyed into the "red hatch". I fished an E. WA lake yesterday and expected GREAT things. Water was 54°F, slightly warmer than the air. And there were lots of shucks on the water. What I saw, the one time the wind laid down enough to row out into the main body of the lake, and the only time the sun peeked out, was a massive submerged cloud of daphnia. As far as I could see.
As I was leaving I spoke with one of the few other anglers on the lake and mentioned what I'd seen. She said she'd pumped a couple of the few trout caught and the fish were gorged on daphnia. So the whole point of my reply to your post "I don't love all the dahpnia....."
That's a good photo of an aquatic insect--the water stick insect (bug).I also saw a ton of big white boatmen paddling around as well as a couple stick bugs that must've been blown out of the trees! Lol wonder if anyone has tied a stick bug pattern??
