Our friend Mike Conolly shares with us his trip to Georgetown Lake.


Georgetown Lake yesterday. This area is closed until July. With no moving water to carry their eggs the trout go through a false spawn and it seems as if every big trout in the lake is in 3 feet of water. The rest of the lake is open to fishing and yesterday was the first time the ice melted away from the shoreline enough to fish. I was waiting. The big trout were there. Sight casting to them is about as good as it gets. I was able to watch nice rainbows attack and take my flys for four hours.
There were no other fishermen. Zero.
Saw elk, antelope, whitetails, mule deer and bighorn sheep on the way home.
Wanted to share this.
