Pete Tobin and I fished a couple of lakes in the Winthrop area. June 14 we fished Big Twin and had some success with big dry flies. We were told that the trout were at the 25 foot level, but we watched active surface feeding in the east end of lake. And this was the ticket to some good dry fly action and close to shore.
Dry flies on a lake are a rarity I've not experienced. I'm glad you had the chance. And such nice fish!!
