Water Boatman Barrage

I took another crack at the plains lakes today and found some nice, big rainbows willing to go after the nymphs. Nothing up top again this time, even though I tried quite a bit. Water boatman were smashing the surface all over the stillness of the lake. I had no idea how many of them could materialize in the fall nor what their flight capabilities were. I had them continually bouncing off of me and the boat during the height of their activity. Fish were taking them just under the surface causing large boils across the still expanse of water. I boated about a third of the fish I hooked today but all were 20-24 inchers which makes for one heck of a nice day on the water.
