Lone Lake: 5/12/11

I’d been chasing the Lings around and having fun that I put the Stillwaters on the backburner, even with the newly finished pram.

It’s been awhile since I fished with Chuck W. He just had his second child and was home on leave. We decided to try out Lone as there was some positive reports of good hatches and larger than average trout.

We caught the 9:30 ferry out of Mukilteo and launched the boats just after 10. Water temp was registering 58 degrees and Jeff H. had one near the launch, so thought it was going to be a great day.

Jeff and I exchanged some ideas and I got to see some very big colossal bombers that he sampled in the size 10 category. I decide to make my way towards the west end bay in 12′ of water where I would find some willing fish. Chuck would also join me for some Chironomid fun as we picked up very nice fish up to 18″ as measured on his measure net. See for yourself, some nice fighting and energetic trout.

    Hey Paul. Thanks for the awesome day yesterday. That were the biggest rainbows I have ever caught. Especially the one that tail walked and jumped three times!!!

    Hey Paul. Thanks for the awesome day yesterday. Those were the biggest trout I have ever caught!!! The best was the one that behaved liked a coho that tailwalked and jumped three times.

    • Glad you had a great time Chuck, now you know how addicting those big trout can be on stillwater wtih light tackle and small flies.
