Lyle and Greg: Rock Lake - 5/22

Greg and Lyle made their annual spring pilgrimage to Rock Lake on Thursday. Fishing was good, but not great. We enjoyed consistent action for nice sized brown trout throughout the day using various techniques. We had to "work" for our limits of brown trout ranged from 16 to 19 inches. The fish seemed fatter on average than previous years. The water was stained, especially near the south end of the lake. There was also more algae floating on the lake than I have ever seen. Rock Lake is a fantastic fishery for browns and rainbows, but I would not recommend fishing this lake right now unless you have a knowledge of the dangerous spots on this lake. Serious damage can occur to your boat due to sudden depth changes and rock pillars that reside in seemingly safe water. The dingy water makes this lake even more treacherous.
