Debated between Steven, Shoecraft, and Goodwin for this morning. Goodwin won, so that's where I headed.
Started about 8am, spent a little over an hour trying to locate fish. Finally located them north of the launch and fairly quickly landed 4 and lost another. Then the lake stopped whispering to me, and would divulge no more secrets for the day. This lake can be fickle.
Ran on 1 line a size 6 green Doc Spratley with 16 inches of leader off a prototype Elgin Fishing dodger, and the other line a size 4 olive Woolly Bugger with 16 inches of leader off a Mack's Double D dodger. I caught fish at 10 and 15 feet down, I tried up top and down low, those were the only 2 depths I got bit at. Water is still too cold, 46 all morning, but the fish are starting to wake up a bit. Saw a few chiromonids, and the fish I did clean were feeding a little. Speed was between 1.25 and 1.5 mph to get bit. Typical spring morning. Got on the lake to a flat glass surface, had clouds roll end, wind kicked up, and as I was getting off the lake it had calmed back down and the sun was peeping through.
Not a knocks your socks off day, but fun to know my favorite lake should be in good fishing shape in the next few weeks.
Video shows my typical Lake Goodwin set up, the 4 I landed, in which there is what I call a quasi double.
