Sprint To The Lake

I had a brief couple hours to head out to the lake and see if I could find some action before I had to be at a graduation party in the evening. The water had definitely warmed up the last couple of days and with a slight chop nymphing with midges paid off handsomely. The fish were cruising on an outer weed line and lazily picking off midges emerging in the shallow water. I did manage a better fish on a prince as well... a rainbow in full spawning colors. It was a real beauty of a fish to end the trip for the night.

First fish of the night, a good fighter for his size

Lake conditions were perfect for the nymph rig

The final fish of the evening was this beautifully colored up rainbow
