    Default Skunked again

    Ok. Been fishing this dang lake all day and nothing. Tried every fly known to man. I think maybe itís just over pressured. Looks like a popular hole.

    Looks like some good rock bluffs on the far side. Did you cast to that side?
    Heck of a crowd.
    If you DO catch something from there, don't eat it. The copper and nickel contamination might be a bit high !!!
    Oh ... and watch your back cast !!! You might catch a people fish. Bottom dwelling and nasty, those people fish. Once in while you might get a good one, but very rare.

    Try a nymph that imitates a copper penny. I'm betting there is a good hatch of them there daily.

    At least you had water. Last time I was there no water, my coin bounced. So my wish didn't true and couldn't come back. You have an enormous family in that photo. Maybe they ate all the fish!

    Looks like an opening day at a Missouri Trout Park. Try cheese bait.

    Actually, the only family member in the photo is the blonde in the lower right taking a picture , my wife. The rest are 3000 of my closest friends.
