More Stillwater Trout

What a difference a week makes! Last Monday we had a 95 degree scorcher that drove the trout down to sulk on the bottom. Surface temp was 72 degrees. Fishing results showed it. This Monday (9/17/07) we had pleasant, mostly cloudy weather with some rain and a surface temp of 61. Trout were happy for the change - and almost suicidal in the low light conditions. Action started right at my arrival on the water at noon at my favorite trout lake. First pic is a good representation of the dark day. The fish loved it.

Fish were consistently 16-19 inches. Fat, chunky rainbows in good health and hungry as bears just out of hibernation.

As a testimony to the change of the season, this summertime bug hitched a ride on my tube when the damp air became too much to keep his helicopter wings flapping. He stayed with me until I went ashore.

Trout continued to cooperate in a big way.

The fly selection wasn't at all complicated. Seal buggers early and chironomids later when a few started showing on the surface.

I hit the docks early. 5 PM and I called it a day with plenty of daylight left to stow my stuff and make the two hour drive home. Since my buggy friend was so faithful in hanging onto the tube, I gave him a nice resting spot to see out the remainder of his days. Made a pretty picture.

What a wonderful day on the water! Final score was: zonker - 15; trout - 0
