Fly recommended by Carl Lacey.
Lake is a fisherman's dream. The lake has a shelf around the perimeter.
The wild rainbow trout like to come up on the shelf to feed. As the weather
gets warmer, move further into deeper water. I like to fish with a sinking
line and 12' leader. I usually spool out all of the sinking line until
I am into the backing. Be ready for hard hitting rainbows averaging 4lbs.
Pound for pound, they are the best fighting fish that I have ever experienced.
