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...

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
