Late Season Pot Hole Trout Fishing with Distractions
Karen and I headed out today to visit a pot hole lake east of town. It was a blustery Sunday and the trout were quite active. We caught lots of fiesty rainbows to 17 inches. Our best fly, the usual; Glen's Leech.
...but it was the distractions that really made the day. We stopped on the way out to watch two yearling eagles and one of their majestic parents. On the way home, 1000s of snow geese were resting in a slough. We stopped to look. I slowly got out of the truck and suddenly there was an explosion of feathers and noise. It was an amazing sight.
...and the noise was amazing.
Very cool day.
