What color? BIG!

You're thinking like a fly fisherman (I know, I do it, too). The thing that will make the most difference is the amount of water you can push and the commotion you can make. My last hit from a muskie came from a white/brown popper. I don't think it made one bit of difference what color it was. If you want to "match the hatch", find out what the forage is in the lake (Cisco, Perch) and go with those colors. I think you'll ultimately find, however, that it is the presentation that will make the most difference.

For streamers, strip fast, lots of action, don't ever let the fly stop, if they follow it all the way in, keep it moving all around the front of the boat and to both sides (since fly rods aren't the best for figure 8s).

Good luck!

Are you at Cass now?

I have lots of bunny flies, dahlburg divers, clousers, big salt water poppers and decivers. I'll be at Cass the first full week in August. Staying at Sunset Cove behind Stanmans place. I'll be in a blue 17' G3 that will look like its a ham radio operators boat. Anyone out flyfishing (or any kind of fishing ) stop by and say HI

I will be in either Cass or Bemidji that week as well. I really wasn't planning on bringing the fly gear this time...but now maybe I will smile.gif

Not sure where we'll be staying yet. There's so many great lakes in that area I don't know how much we'll actually be on Cass. We're in a little 14' backtroller, so we'll often be in the bay, or on Big Lake, Little Wolf or Plant. Will probably make a trip down to Mantrap at some point as well.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
