Way to go Mark! An acrobatic rainbow trophy trout!

“Arrived on Mother Lake 8am on both Friday 6/7 and Monday 6/10. Lake is full, springs are running, water temps are getting warmer… big fish are still being caught! Both days fished identical. Both leading to trophies! 1st day with 3 anglers (Fred, Jared, and Jake) found fish hungry and active.

On Monday 3 anglers (Fred, Bruce, and Mark) also had a good day with plenty of action.

Fish were taken on Chironomids, Callibeates, and Damsel Nymphs. A few fish were caught on Chernobyl type patterns fishing aggressively on the surface.
Fish were caught when there was a chop on the water and a bit of cloud cover.

The 3 biggest fish were all caught as a small front came over and as the rain started. Fridays big catch was a 27″ male that took a damsel nymph caught by Jake Cragun. On Monday Mark Bocella played this 30″ trout perfect with 3 priceless jumps out of the water!”

WOW! Jake's got a classic HOG and smile!
