Chul had planned to drive in the morning but since he had a flat that he could not repair in time I drove. Not planning on that I didn't realize I was nearly out of gas in the morning which meant I would have to divert to the gas station causing me to be 20 minutes behind schedule. So I picked him up and went to our new breakfast spot for burritos. We were on the lake by 10am. Chul spotted a nice 3lber from the trail along the shoreline. He stayed there while I made myself around the lake until I could start spotting them myself. None were big. I started with a micro jerkhanger but soon realized that even though it was turning fish, it didn't resemble any forage in the lake. So I switched to an olive balanced leech and managed two until I came to the conclusion that the fly was sinking too fast. I would get the fishes attention, turn them but once they came to inspect it I was already on the bottom before the fish committed. The fly would annoyingly pick up moss. Looking though my box, I switched to an unweighted olive damsel nymph.
Now that the fly would suspend longer in the water column I plucked out five or six more. All bass were dinks none especially impressive but I was expecting that in this lake and that is why I chose to bring my five weight. Chul made is way toward me and told me he hadn't gotten any so I gave him a damsel fly and he manged to get three before calling it a day.
