Local Pot Hole Lakes Are Fishing Well!
Our local pothole lakes are now stocked and it is time to get out there and enjoy some fly fishing! Karen and I hit a pothole lake in "eastern" Central Alberta. The day started off with us fishing Glen's Leech along the edges. We caught several sizeable rainbows. We then decided to head to another spot and the trout were quite active. They were hitting flashbacks and a variety of chironomids patterns. The chironomids were hatching and the trout were on them. The "stockers" were picking off the emerges as they sat in the surface film. They were tough to catch but fishing 4 to 6 feet down allowed us to tag several rainbows. The fish we saw today suggested that they wintered well! Get out there everybody and enjoy!
