Lake Trout Delight
May 16, 2004
A slight twist today with Martin Forget on a nearby lake for Lake Trout. We trolled streamers with fly rods and had 5 takes. Four of them locked up with fish and three turned out to be Lake Trout up to 6 pounds. The other fish was a sucker of about 6 pounds as well. Believe it or not, he actually hit the fly over 30 feet of water. The air was 60 degrees and the water barely 50. Winds out of the north at 5 to 10 mph. Chilly conditions for most of the day. We fished until about 1:30 PM and then got off the lake. An average day for trout and salmon usually sees about 5 or 6 pulls on the fly rods in a half day fishing.
