Got my lines in the water about 8am. First 30 minutes landed 2 11-12 inch rainbows. Released both and continued on my way. Both caught at 20 feet on the downrigger. Got a couple more on in the next few hours that didn't make it to the net. Also had a few drive-by's. Dropped the downrigger to 5 feet from bottom and got rewarded with a nice chunky 17 inch rainbow. Awesome day to be out on the water.

Fishing is by no means hot yet, but it is starting to turn on. Another few weeks it should be go time. Ran my standard gear for Lake Goodwin. Macks 00 dodgers, 18 inch leader to a size 6 or 8 green Doc Spratley fly. Downrigger line got bites between 20-25 feet. The other line I tried 1/8th ounce lead down to 1 1/2 ounce. Marked lots of fish shallow, but none that would bite. Surface temp was 43 when I started, 45 when I finished.

Been waiting for your reports on your home lake Josh. I am itching to get on there again too.

I was out there a few times over the winter, but that lake completely shuts off unless you want to plunk bait and chum. Even then it's slow going. Once the water warms up another couple of degrees it should get good again. Positive sign was that this fish's belly was stuffed full of nymphs, so they are starting to actively feed. He also had himself what looked to be like a little perch minnow in his gut.
