Hosmer Lake for me was ok this week. Not epic catches by any means, but we worked the channels and caught fish on various leeches, san juan worms and zebra midges. I definitely could tell the fish were feeding on Water Boatman at the surface, but we went through several floating boatman patterns that did not produce. We did get fish on sunken boatman patterns under the indicator. Yesterday on the way out of the upper lake and channel we ran into a (great) guy in a red float tube, enduring the pouring rain and catching fish on a soft hackle, trolling with a sinking line. It sounded like his success was better than ours!
Finally, it was great to have spent the day with my friend Mike on his 75th birthday and share a grand slam together in the sunshine a couple of days ago. Always cool when lakes have a few species of trout and you land all of them.
