Started b/4 8:00 with a trip to the coves on the east side - must have been a recent plant of 8-9" hatchery trout cuz that's all we could catch - moved across to the west side for trolling and headed north along the wall - lure of the day for browns were multiple blades followed by a 4' leader with macks wedding ring and a worm. The browns showed no internal sign of pre spawn and all had empty stomachs. Water at the S end was 40f and north end was 38f - clarity was very very poor - only about 1 1/2-2'. Wind came up a little after 10:00, then it would drop and then come a little stronger, kept that up until we couldn't control the boat with the trolling motor. Water level is very full - launch and retrieve was not a problem -- there were several in the 18-20' range that had no problems at all. Just before the "ranch house" about 2/3 of the way to the north end we saw a lot of fish stacked up in the 80-120' depth and that lasted for about 1/2 mile. Off the water with everybody else between 2:30-3:00. Fish that hit set the hook themselves - hit real hard. Will get better as it gets warmer. Catch depth 30' +/- 5'.

Thanks for the report, any size to the browns? Also, German Browns tend to spawn in the fall, usually October around here. The Rainbow Trout will be spawning this time of year.

And thnx for ur rpt on sprague - guess that lake needs more time too. Thnx also for info on browns - 22" +/- 2" - long and lean - they
seemed to be really hungry and the water was really ugly - lotsa stuff washed down from full running creeks.
