The b'LAWg - Dave Law's Fish Stories

The b'LAWg - Badger Lake Rocked!

Posted:

Did you go fishing when the temperatures rose last week? I managed to get out to Badger Lake twice (May 8th & 10th) and found some sweet fishing! The first day was a short 3-hour trip around midday with time spent investigating different sections of the entire lake. I got into several average sized trout, but the next day, I released about 25 fish (Rainbows & Cutthroats)… of which the biggest was 18". The trollers who called it quits about the same time as me were proud to proclaim a 35-fish day (of which they kept  7 nice Rainbows). Observations & Tips: Over those 2 days, the water temperature rose slightly from 49° to 51° (a favorable indicator), the bite was really hot at around 3-5pm for my ruby bead-headed olive bugger, and the south end of the lake (boat launch/public fishing) definitely produced more bites.
