The fishing has been off the hook up here!

Lake Estes - Friday night 4:30 - 6:00. Caught 4 Rainbows 14 - 17 & 1/2 inches and fat! Used fly & bubble on small side of lake. (Trying to catch some Perch like the Fogal brothers).

Not private, but unknown ponds - Saturday night 5:00 - 6:00. Caught a few small Perch. Used bits of worms.

Mary's Lake - Sunday morning 9:00 - 1:30. Never saw so many fish caught here! Everyone was limiting out. Don't think it really mattered what was used, but people using bait we're schooling me.  :-[ I was fishing w/ my buddy Ron. He caught 20 using white or orange Power-Bait. I caught 6 using Super-Dupers and Thomas Boyant's. In my defence, He had gotten 2 before I started, and he was using 2 rods to my 1.  :-[

Re: Estes

Fished Mary's last fall with the kids. After catching a few to take back to camp, I gave the two kids spinners to cast. They still got a bunch of fish with the spinners. Had the barbs clamped down. It was fun wathing the kids learn to land fish with no barbs. After losing a few fish my 9 year old finally strated landing fish without getting a bunch of slack in the line while landing a fish.

We got most of them on what I call the money clip lure(shaped like a money clip). Gold or Silver with either red or black spots on it.
