April 7, 2009 On a local lake

Tom finally took his skis off for a day and went to one of the first lakes to open up just south of town. Warm weather and calm winds made a great afternoon on the lake.

Bald EagleThe only other fishermen on the lake

Water Conditions: 

Clear, cold, calm

Hatches: 

Not much coming off the lake yet.

Flies to Use: 

Chironomids and buggers.

Commentary: 

Fish were definitely cruising the shoals. Best to just get out and try the Chrironmids or strip a bugger.
