Have you ever had a day when you just wanted to go for a drive and get a "full" day of fishing in? That was my mood on Saturday and being the compulsive person I am I headed out a 4am to hit the lake with Chuckmiester and Greenguy88. Good to meet you Chuckmiester and good to fish again with you GreenGuy! I caught into my first fish before either of them had shown up with a sculpin bugger, if you look close you can see it hanging out of its mouth!



The action was steady all day, no monsters this week but 13-16 inch trout all day long caught on a variety of methods the best today was on flies. The fish caught on the lucky craft lure had 3 fish follow it to shore so I stopped reeling in and let the lure drop. The lure was in about 6 inches of water and this tiger swam up and grabbed it, it was a great show we could all see! I did pop for the lucky craft lure and this was its first maiden voyage, I would say $15 well spent!



I stayed at the lake until about the noon wind came up, the weather was perfect and the trout kept coming, here is another example of what we were catching:



Chuckmiester was making them pay with leaches on the fly rod, and greenguy88 made a big splash catching 3 fish within 20 min of his arrival, way to make an entrance. I have a two-pole permit and we had a double hookup and a third fish came 2 min after landing the first two fish. It was very visual fishing because about ½ the trout hit the bugger within 5 feet of shore and I could see them take it.

That would have been a day for most but I though heck the green is only another 1-½ hours away why not give it a try. I miscalculated and 2 ¾ hours later I pulled up to little hole.



It turned out the water was as low very low, and tons of moss along the shoreline and overgrown foliage to cast through. I did pick up one fish but due to a perfect long distance release I have no photo to share. What a humbling day, my last trip to the green produced more than 10 fish today 1 hookup OUCH. That is fishing for you!

Wow, from there to the Green...That's quite the detour. :lol: I know that feeling, though. Does your wife know you drove all the way out there? :lol:

I'm glad you had some fun and got to appease your driving appetite. :wink:

it was a good day and it was awesome to meet orvis and greenguy. greenguy and i actually stayed the entire day and he got one about 20" (i think he has a picture) and the evening really heated up. we both had hogs that broke our line though. too bad the green wasnt as good as where you were earlier. in the evening the wind died and we had hits on every cast on our fly rods. greenguy also got a fat cutthroat.

Good going guy's, sounds like a heck of a day !!!!.. :) Just one of those day's to take off and do fun stuff. I'm glad we can have day's like that, everybody needs those once in a while. No other stops on your way to the Green from the other lake ?? Well, you probably would have needed a week or two for that journey !! Let's go !!!.. :) :)
With all those experienced fishermen in one spot, the fish don't stand a chanch !! Glad you guy's all got out and enjoyed yourselves..Nice Report !!!

Sometimes the grass isn't greener on the other side, I should have stayed and seen if I could hook a big one. Good job on the fish greenguy and chuckmiester I would love to see that 20' pic as well fish porn..... I just was longing for some moving water because the streams have been calling me for 4 weeks. I guess when the lakes are covered with an ice cap the moving waters will see me some more, Provo river here I come.

Glad you made it to the Green safe Orvis, too bad it wasnt hot fishing! After you left me and Chuck were really makin em pay for the rest of the day, especially right before sundown. By the way it was good to meet you too chuck, and good seeing you again orvis. Well have to go again, somewhere. Anyways I have a couple pics of tigers I caught, Ill try to get them up when I have more time. No pics of the cut tho, and he was a beautie. Orvis when you go to the Provo let me know, Id like to give that river a try, and remember you agreed to try ice fishing at least once :wink: !
