Delanney Lakes

Just wondering if anyone has ventured up that way this year yet. The DOW report says the ice is coming off quickly so I imagine it has to be close to open by now. I imagine most of you fish up that way during the year anyone else experience the fishing taking a huge step backwards last year. On a normal summer day I can hook 50-100 fish over on the East lake but last year I had days of long slow periods and had to fish much harder to catch them. Is it smarter fish or did I just catch it wrong a couple times. Best time to fish up there is Memorial weekend I think so my flies are tied and hoping for a good weather weekend to head up there......

I was up to north 3 times since ice off(about 1 1/2 months ago) caught the biggest bow I have ever seen come out of there. It was a big female with eggs 24" long and FAT. I'm guessing about 12-13 lbs. my best day was 11 fish all on an egg pattern. N delany will beat most guys up pretty bad but its worth catching a few quality fish. The damsal and tricos hatch are on right now. A big craw pattern also always works well in the hot months. Lastly if the lake is slow throw odd stuff at them. I have caught those fish on plastic worms and spinnerbaits before. my 2 cents.
Good Luck
