The b'LAWg - Dave Law's Fish Stories

The b'LAWg - Fishing Sprague Lake

Posted: Updated:

    I just had to try it! Off to Sprague Lake in an effort to catch a big trout…I only wanted "one" 4-6 pounder. Ha! The forecast was for light winds, a critical element for fishing Sprague Lake. The sun was out, water temperature was 56° and there was a bug hatch throughout the afternoon that only intensified as the day warmed. I was surprised to see very little surface activity, because there were so many darn bugs hatching; I called it quits by 5pm. I fished 2 rods most of the day and fished different depths, changed speeds, trolled wedding rings/spinners, tossed numerous flies/patterns, cast jigs, and wet a worm or two…only 1 bite while I was in the middle of day-dreaming or asleep at the wheel. From my experience and observations, I can only assume the fish are eating well, thrive on the abundant aquatic food sources, and are quite finicky. This lake requires experimentation, patience, and a little luck. Oh well, I had 2 out of 3.
