Change Of Pace

I had talked to Eric about trying to get out on Saturday, but we were both looking for something a little different than the high country. We decided to check out a lower level lake that, if the water is cool enough, can be very entertaining with brown trout and snake river cutthroats both providing strong fighting opportunities. We arrived and put in with the float tubes. This lake has good callibaetis and midge hatches as an almost daily occurrence. We never did see any callies come off today, but the consistent action on midge patterns paid off for a nice day from the float tube. We both took various browns and a couple cutthroats showed up throughout the day. I am glad we took a chance at lower elevations even with the risk of possible warm water. The temps were nice and cool and the fish responded and rewarded us for our gamble. No monster fish today, but many 13-16 inch trout willing to jump, fight, and entertain us.
