Lakes are clearing, fishing is good

I stopped by Eagle Canyon this morning.  The lakes are still off color due to the big storm that ended yesterday.  There is about 18" of visibility.  Despite the poor visibility, it only took me about 5 casts to hook and land a nice fish.  The lakes actually fish better when they're not crystal clear.  2-3 feet of visibility is about perfect.  Just clear enough for the fish to see the fly easily, but not clear enough for the fish to feed heavily on natural insects.  With murky water, be sure to try bright colored flies like the one in the photo.
