Stormy Fall Rainbows
The common theme this week has been rain showers. The rain is not all that bothersome, its the lightning that tends to run me off the water to await their passing. Today was no different with a pair of severe storms passing through the vicinity of the lake. I got the pontoon out and had a blast fishing to stout rainbow trout up to 19 inches. These fish just seem to develop so nicely in this lake given the immense food base available. It was another day of midging and the acrobatic rainbows were quite a treat to battle. They are big on leaping and tailwalking in this particular body of water. Eric showed up later in the day to partake of some of the action as well and we had a good time watching each other get bulldogged and schooled by the powerful 'bows.
