Larry,
Excellent day. Looks like you finally beat that bad thunderstorm mojo too.

Yat: Thanks, but I don't think so, I'[m still keeping an eye over the shoulder. Yesterday I took the afternoon off work to go over to Steamboat to pick up my new boat cover. In the morning it was a cloudless blue sky so I was thinking I could probably ride the bike over and besides they were only calling for a 20% chance of thunderstorms. For some odd reason I decided to drive the truck and how glad am I that I did. The wx going over was pretty good except for som high winds, but when I got to Steamboat the north end of town was BLACK and by the time I got to Hog Island Boatworks the skies opened up big time. I parke dthe truck right in front of their door to minimize getting too wet. Going home it rained almost the entire way. Lots of bikers on the road headed to Sturgis and getting soaked! Today however, was a great day to be on the water.

Jimmie: Thanks, it was a great day. More oven than not I get blown off that lake with the afternoon thunderstorms. Even when the storms don't track right over the lake they can kick up some heavy winds and waves. I haven't been out there this year since I got my new anchor and a little longer anchor rope. Before when the winds kicked up my anchor wouldn't hold, the wind would slowly push me across the lake to the leeward side where I would wait out the storm, then go back to fishing......assuming there is no lightning, overwise I high tail it off the lake.

I was using a size 16 black Chironomid with a fancy gold throat, that I tied up this past winter with a tan Calibaetis nymph as a dropper, but I didn' hook anything on the dropper. I'll post a pattern if I can find it. Here is a link to what I was using, scroll to the bottom where the pictures are and the one I was using is on the top row far right.

I switched out the dropper a number of times but never did get a hit on it, at least that I could tell. I was using a 12 ft leader 5x, with about a three foot tippet, 5x. I was adusting the indicator so that I was just above the weed beds, takes a little experimenting each time you move the boat. Fishing with Chironomids involves an excruciating slow retrieve, but it is very effective. When I first got on the water there was a good number of Calibaetis duns and damsel flies on the water but virtually no fish coming up after them. I think I saw maybe 12 rises all day. Good luck.

Larry
