Explored a few local lakes this evening. The first lake didn't seem to have much of anything going on so I decided to move on and try another spot. The second lake was choked with thick mats of algae but fish were working the outside edge of the mats. Takes on a big cicada up top brought back memories of evening smallmouth fishing but these were rainbows boiling on the fly. Actually landing fish was a bit hard with all the algae and cleaning the gear in between almost every cast. It would have been nice to have the pontoon out this evening, but I made do with wading as far out as possible. I ended up keeping two fat fish with the result being a delicious dinner of freshly grilled rainbow trout.
