Lake Rim Fly Testing

Tested a few flies on the Lake Rim trout ponds this morning. 

OK, so it is not a regular trout stream - but it is not much different then some of those Delayed Harvest pools where you can see 20-30 fish hugging the bottom. In my opinion is tougher then a that - These ponds are about an acre each. They are about 60 yards across and and 200 yards long - 6 feet deep at deepest end- Water is dark enough that you can not see bottom or any of the fish - I'll post a photo so you can see. Each has 500 fish. 

Fishing was tough today. My guess is that I caught about 15-20 in an hour and half of fishing. Could have caught more if I'd stuck to they seemed to like which was a Olive Bead head Woolybugger. I kept switching flies to see what else they would hit. Close behind the WB was a yellow estrz egg. 

All fish caught were brookies. We have 250 brookies and 750 Rainbows. The brookies seem to hit when the water temp is down in the 40s which it is now. Rainbows shut down when water is that cool.

Will try it again tomorrow - have a couple of new flies to try. ;D
