New Year's Eve at the lakes

We had a great group of gals fish Eagle Canyon on New Year's Eve day.  Kim, Deborah & Michelle had fun catching some seriously big fish.  One even dragged Kim into the water - see below.  Here is Kim's fishing report:
It was cold and clear in the morning with ice on the ground. We had a really great morning with fish after fish, it slowed to almost nothing during the day when the wind picked up, temperature dropped and the clouds rolled in - perhaps the barometer, then it picked up again going crazy just before dusk. We caught most of the fish on clear intermediate sinking lines and the rest on sink tips.  Bright green Clouser minnows, pink bunny leeches (weirdly they liked them on top in the lower pond), green crystal buggers and later black woolly buggers and bunny leeches did the trick.  I think all the fish were caught on 2x tippet.  We didn't find the fish to be leader shy at all. The smaller ones (5-7lb) fought the best.  The really big one (15-20??) was more sluggish. The fish were super hot in the evening and that sure was fun.  Got a good soaking from their tails throwing water up as they swam back into the lake after being released.  We caught most of our fish in the upper lake - on the levee in the morning and the island you can walk out to in the evening. All in all a fun day.
 
Weekend dates are disappearing fast for February and March!  We're only open through April 10th so plan your trip soon.
