Non stop action pretty much sums up yesterday.

My client  Charlie a first time McCloud fisher reeled in one after another, while keeping a few for the bbq and letting the rest go. Slow trolling a dodger an worm combo was all it took.. We caught Trout in the 10 to 16 inch range from one end of the reservoir to the other. Mostly rainbows but we did mix a few nice browns as well. 

Conditions we mostly glassy an overcast throughout the day. The wind did come up a little but did not slow the fishing and eventually went away leaving glass once again. Most of the Trout were on the surface but we did find fish between 30 and 50 feet on the downrigger. 

It is hard to go wrong with McCloud now, the fish are hungry so give me a call and lets put a trip together.
