Tubing Near 9000 Feet

Things are opening up higher in elevation now, so Eric and I took advantage and hit a higher mountain lake that sits just below 9,000 feet. We got hammered with a hail and rain storm early on but it only lasted for 15 to 20 minutes. We did have a little intermittent rain later in the day as well. Action was a little on the slow side but consistent and we managed some nice rainbows up to 17 inches and brook trout in the 12 to 14 inch range working sinking lines with buggers. The fish were hammering the bugger on the pause of the strip. I kept a few brookies for dinner and oven baked them. They were delicious.
