Well we hit a very popular lake to fish today. The day started off near 0C but it quickly ended up being one of those special warm windless days on the water. The lingering snow from our first "winterish" storm quickly disappeared. A loon was still hanging out at the lake, odd for almost mid October but nice ambiance nevertheless. Fly fishing was excellent. Boatman/backswimmers were working although we stuck to a few micro leech patterns for most of the day. We spent the day fishing shallow. The water temperature was perfect and the rainbows were hungry. Lots of fun for all 4 of us, especially the rookie!
...there are not very many days left before the lakes are covered in ice.
