Went up to Pass Lake yesterday. There was a lot of algae in the water, kind of strange for the middle of winter. Can anyone explain a mid winter algae bloom? Anyway, with Sunday being one of the warmer, drier days this week and the rivers pretty much blown, thought we’d give Pass a try. As usual for winter, slow and low was the order of the day. Didn't see any bug activity, no hatches and no shucks. We had 10 hits with 2 'bows to the boat. The two we brought in were about 14” and very, very skinny (sorry no pics) with no fight at all. Saw a few others on the water and only saw one other caught. Alas, a few more months the weather will improve and the waters will warm and the Yakima will kick back in. I think I’ll tie a few hundred more flies and wait out the winter.
