Just a little info for those heading to the Ely area. Laker activity is starting to pick up. We were finding them 30 feet down in 50 feet of water. Ciscos worked, but they were even hitting deep diving lures. Small Mouths were hitting aggressively in significant numbers. As for the Walleyes, they were non-existent.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
