First time to Rufus Woods, stayed at Cabin by the River. Was a learning curve to fishing here, would probably been better served with going there with somebody with experience. Thanks to all for your input on my forum post on going there. Tried jigs of different patterns, colors, and sizes and a few different flies. Did not understand there are 3 sets of pens on the lake til we were on the road back home so missed my chance of fishing the upper pen. Will go back again sometime and hopefully have more luck/skill.

Well at least you got stay at the cabin and experience the beauty of the lake. The folks at the ranch are great people as well. I have fished lake many times and usually start out trolling (needlefish spoons, whooly bugger flies, hootchies with a smile blade allpulled behind a small Zone Cone flasher). When things get really slow we will tie up just below the lower pens or near the upper pens and soak some rainbow powerbait. This will usually produce a few even when the bite is off.

Thanks gramps53, yes the cabin and owners are great and the lake was beautiful. I think the wife would have been content even if we hadn't fished at all (She absolutely loved the cabin and setting) My downfall probably was I didn't realize people were using flashers/pop gear in front of the jigs and flies. Regardless we had a great time getting away fishing, catching is just a bonus.
