Out of boredom I took a ride to Chatty yesterday morning. 1 boat on the water and they are harvesting the wally eggs at the damn.

Talked to a few shore fisherman and all were getting skunked. They were spread out from south of the swim beach, Massey Draw and the bay at the north ramp.

Thinking about trying my luck at the Chat tomorrow. Don't have a boat but will probably wade in for some trout. Any tips or pointers would be appreciated. New to the site and semi new to the area. I will keep you all posted on how it goes.

For trout I would try either out from the swim beach, or around the southside handicap fishing pier.

Another warden came up as backup and I dragged my feet so he would check my license at the truck rather than on the water. When he came over, I said "I call bullshit on that guy. Anybody that night fishes Shatty with 42 deg water aint goin for bass and he KNOWS the size limit on eyes. Its posted everywhere." He laughed.

Its a tough lake to fish, especially from shore. No excuse for not following the rules.
