Great pics Jay! Nice fish and scenery. Looks like yer having some fun out east, I'm headed out in a couple hours to chase some green carp. And I'm guessing my scenery might be a tad better - hubba hubba. If I don't get arrested taking pics, I'll post a couple. grin.gif

Hey Duff - Your scenery might be "nicer" but I bet you have to deal with jetskis, boaters, and yahoos. I fished for 4 hours yesterday and saw one guy hundreds of yards away...

Its that time of year here for all the local festivals and county fairs - plenty to look at there, both good and bad...

soHaad - Thats the upper Delaware. Shes big but also runs cold from the dam. And shes definatly a challenge to fly fish but home to wild browns and rainbows in the 20+ inch class.

We spend a bit of time there but also stomping miles of small streams.

Is this more your size?

Yep. Now I feel more comfortable. Great pics. It looks like you've got some great water to fish. Do those fish below the dam feed on mysis shrimp? I used to live near the Taylor dam in Colorado, which had a similar situation.

No shrimp here but that tailwater is thick with bugs. Mayflies, caddis, and stones. Right now its mostly blue winged olives and sulphers...

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
