Re: fly fishing this weekend
Just got back from Eleven Mile this weekend too. We fished mostly in Cross Creek, but the moss was bad. Didn't do any good for Pike, but the rainbows were hitting pretty good on a black and yellow Panther Martin spinner, just had to find an alley between the moss to get a clean retrieve. Worms on a bobber were doing well too because you could keep them out of the moss as well. My rainbow catches averaged 14-18 inches, but others were catching rainbows in the 20-22 inch range. I heard the rainbows were also great at Lazy Boy and Rocking Chair, but I didn't go over there. The weather was terrible though. Rain, close lightning, and even hail on Friday. There was snow on Spinney mountain on Friday.
On Sunday, the weather got better though, and I went to the "dream stream" and did well with a BWO on the east side of hwy 59.
