Decided to quit at noon which was just as well as the generator went on. The hapless campers at the first site were leaving too. They said the helicopter came in a couple of times on Saturday and that they had the generator going all day.
Over at a nearby brookie lake, all was calm. The reason was the ST of 72F. No sane trout will go there. Of course a couple of stockers occasionally did. Got a 8 inch stocker on the Stubinski Special, the Golden Olive Jansen Leech. They are growing quite well. In a healthy lake, trout can grow 1 inch per month and some of these shallow lakes are real bug factories. The fly is the same colour as the chara weeds. A number of years ago, I saw a leech that colour. It is my best fly for that lake but I must tie some smaller ones as I had several good hits but only this hookup. Not sure I'll go back there until the Fall unless we get some cool weather. Fish taste terrible from this lake so you don't want any belly ups. Saw one miserable boatman. So much for the "hatch" this year.
