I thought about fishing a lake not too far from @b_illymac's favorite place for girls but it was raining and cold so I went in search of rainbow trout. Found some and the lake is FULL!

The water is cold, 38.5F the trout are a bit colored, only one fish was bright.

Managed to get the tules in focus. Took three trout on a small purple midge fished under an indicator. Took two more fish on a minnow pattern stripped slowly in.

Didn't see any rattlesnakes, didn't see any ticks. Did see a WDFW game warden who checked my license.

The wind became brutal and the rain started back up. The bite ceased or maybe I was just too cold to cast.

Those are NICE fish, Pat! Rained here most of the day which scuttled my b-day range plan. Oh well, the pellet stove made for a cozy afternoon (and a nice nap!).

I got off this mysterious water just as the rain started coming down. By the time I got back to Soap Lake, it was pouring and the wind had picked up even more. I wish I'd gotten a picture of the first fish, big shoulders and bright. Next time.
