I started of Saturday Nov. 12, by scouting Carter Lake and it's surrounding waters. I have lived in this area all of my life and can not ever remember this reservoir being this low which in numbers I would guess it to be one hundred feet low. I checked the lake from many locations and did not happen to see any movement from the kokanee in there usuall staging areas, i.e. dam 1 and/ or the south baot ramp. The water levels at Flatiron and Pinewood were only a touch below full and the wind was howling fierce and cold. I you all can remember, this was the day that trees, in the high country, were being snapped in two by hurricane force winds... very unfishable conditions. With my tail between my legs I scampered down the mountain for shelter and hopes of the wind to take a evening break. My wish did not come as the wind only intensified. I decided to night fish a while at Lake Loveland for walleye along the wind beaten south shore along Hwy. 34. I figured every thing would be in my favor as far as conditions were concerned. I had low light conditions, cool water temperature, and a strong wind blowing into a rip rap shoreline. I was throwing a size 9 suspending Rapala Husky Jerk in rainbow finish. I walked up and down the shoreline for only an hour and didn't catch any. With the immense wind it was really hard to cast and once in the water my lure and line was impossible to keep track of. With the rip-stop-and twitch retrieve it is essential to be aware of lure and line at all times. Even after bieng wind whipped and cold I still had a great time.
