From HOT to Cold in 4 days

I fished San Luis Reservoir today eager to continue last Mondays luck, but to my surprise the fishing turned off in only 4 days. Tim Anderson and I looked high and low for bait and bigger fish with only a couple keepers and a bunch of “rats” to show. The only difference between Sunday and…

Another Great Day on the Lake

Last Monday was the best day on the lake for me this year even though I didn’t catch either of the two 12 pounders that were caught that day.   Again, today was even better than Monday for me,  and again the “big one” alluded me and chose Dan’s fly instead of mine or Ed’s.…
