However there is the odd lake here and there that can provide some decent trout fishing if one matches the gear accordingly. At this lake, only 45 min from home, yielded 6 to the tube (I try not to net fish as it is easy to release the hook from a tube). I also had 4 or 5 long and short line releases.
I'm using 3wt rods for fish under 2 pounds. They offer a comp ramble sense of action with enough strength to get the fish in without tiring it too much.
My usual flies of Mrs Simpson and Orange Hammill's did not provide the same results as the PT Nymph or Half Back even though I'm not sure there are Mayflies in this lake but I think the small size and buginess of these two patterns are irresistible to trout.
This is a 2 or more year old Rainbow. They don't get very large in this small lake. This is a lake that our club identified (actually me) as being a good flyfishing lake and we supplemented the stocking a few years back when we had a local hatchery. The Ministry responded by stocking more fish after that (to their credit).
