I left Blue Mesa again wondering why those fish won't eat anything. Caught 2 small macks early and then had trouble even getting a nibble after that, really, really slow. I guess its been that way for everyone according to the guy at the marina. Took a tour of a couple creek arms wow great sights.

I marked alot more lakers and even a few more giants but forget about it, they wouldn't take anything I sent down there. I guess I'll be heading about 5 hours west if I want to go for the big ones from now on. Which doesn't bother me, that much at least when I go up the Gorge its well worth it.

The lakers were caught in the morning, but it was slow after that. Yea Blue is really a great brown trout lake and still is a great for lakers but there getting tougher to catch.

Thats the biggest problem no other lake in this state has as much on the lake trout menu. Most of the fish I've caught over 22" at Blue have had fat belly's of kokanne or small trout. Blue's lakers are very rarely exceptionally active and when they are its usually in blizzard or pretty rough conditions.
