Not much was happening so by noon we decided to start heading back to the launch. With a brief interlude after we hit a stray dog (dog OK), we were approaching Pakenham just as the lightning started. When we started up my road, a tree fell in front of us. At our house it was raining too hard to get out of the car. Lots of lightning overhead and the fiercest wind I have seen here. My friend left an hour later but was back knocking on my door. Can't get out. In the .9km road there were eight trees down. If we had been more dedicated fishers, we might have been driving that road dodging trees! Or even worse if we had stayed in Calabogie.....those poor people at Norway Lake (another private lake with some great bass...I have a spot to get in :))
At Limestone I caught numerous small bass casting to shore. But did get one LM at 17" and another at 15". Both in about 15ft of water with sinking line and the bright green Mississippi Maiden, pretty well my go-to fly for bass.
