We got out to the lake around 7 am, and I spent 30 minutes off the tailgate of a truck trying to get my gear rigged up. "Rusty" doesn't fully explain how long it's been since I tied a fly to my leader. Steve had his gear rigged up already, and as we pulled up to Popcorn Rock, we immediately noticed some fairly large fish feeding on the surface. He grabbed his gear and hit the beach while I fumbled around with flies and leaders, and had this Hog to shore before I even got my waders on:
We saw quite a bit of surface action, but they wouldn't take the nymphs and buggers I was throwing. We spent a 3 hours at Popcorn and moved on to Sandhole for another 2 hours with no other fish to hand. The weather was gorgeous though, and it was a great day to be fishing.
Having checked the weather reports, we knew it was going to get windy, so we packed up and headed back around 12:30 pm. Just in time to beat the 60 mph gusts. The lake was glass for most of the morning though, and there weren't many watercraft out an about due to the wind advisory for the afternoon.
