Due to a late cancellation by someone who was clearly stringing me a long for laughs because I am not likable, I went to Failure Lake again. The other one is one f a handful I am uncomfortable going to alone due to the grizzlies. They are everywhere, but in certain areas/drainages the question isnt if I’ll see one (usually not), but rather where, how close will I be when I jump it, and how many.
The fish were really happy today. They were cruising up high, sipping bugs happily. Literally, every fish I put a fly in front of ate it, and I put the fly in front of a lot of fish. Missed a couple and lost a few, but I must’ve landed 20 or so in an hour. Nothing big, all 10-14”, Id say, and I avoided casting to anything smaller than that. Only fished an hour or so then relaxed and had lunch - honestly, had the fishing been a little tougher, I’d have probably fished longer, but I figured I stabbed enough fish in the face before dragging them around the lake at that point.
