Katie & I had our annual family and friends day at Eagle Canyon today.  We had a big crew up here and the lakes looked great!  Early in the morning the fish were cruising within 10ft of the bank, but as we started fishing they pushed off a bit.  The most effective techniques were dry/dropper and indicator fishing.  Some of the kids in our group as young as 11 managed to hook and land fish up to 6 pounds all on their own.  Pretty cool!
 
It was a very calm and sunny day so the fishing was challenging in general.  We did get some grabs on nymphs on 4X tippet, but way more grabs when we switched to 5X tippet.  There are tons of fish in the lakes right now and the sight-fishing is pretty amazing.  When the sun is high you can sight-fish 100% of the time.  The fish were rising quite a bit to March Brown mayflies mid-day.  I had fun fishing a parachute adams size 14 as an indicator fly with a nymph dropper on 5X tippet.  The dropper leader was only 12 inches or so.  Flies that worked today include:
 
Sucker Spawn, Oregon Cheese, size 12
Hogan's S&M Nymph, Olive, size 16
Tailwater Tiny, Olive, size 18
Flashback PT size 18
 
The fish are really finicky right now and I watched dozens of fish refuse fly after fly.  The key is to fish light tippet (6X might not be a bad idea if you're good at playing big fish on light tippet) and to change flies rapidly.  5 refusals and change flies.  If we could make the fish dumber, trust me - we would!
