Lake calm. Lots of nice sized, heavy bodied Blue Gills, 7-8 inches. Rowed around in shallows and saw a lot of 5-6 inch LM Bass- good sign for future, don't eat them now or when they grow up.
Lots of nice sized gills, 7-8 inches, one 9 inch, all returned, was bass fishing, one small LM Bass, 12 inches. 30 years ago a 5 lb LM Bass was not uncommon. Release the bass and trout and eat the pan fish. Last year seemed the gills were specked, this year all clean and nice color. Lake needs a cleaning, weeds are getting out of hand.
Birch tree blocking curve at landing but not the landing.
Good day on Moose. Lots of nice sized crappies and blue gills, had a n/pike go after a gill I had on, but missed it. Haven't had a pike bite off my flie in 2-3 years, thought they were all fished out and eaten. crappies were 8-10 inches and gills 7-8 inches. Gills seem very clean this year, nice color no black specs.
Thanks for your reply flyrod man. I know its a shame that people wont catch and release the trout, especially when it was know to have very large browns. Did you catch the 2 big browns last year in the spring hole or lake? and did you catch them using flies on a fly rod? what about using large streams for them? I have also heard that night fishing for browns is the best, since they are more aggressive, especially at full moon between 11-3 when the moon is is directly above you, what is your opinion or experience on that. last question, while fishing for the trout if using a large streamer or even fly, do you catch a lot of little northern pike, is there time or way to avoid hooking these and breaking your line? thanks for your input, its nice to get feed back from another fly fishermen.

Gills very active and many 7-8 inch if you keep..Gills are in thick weeds and suspended half way down. Two LM bass,small, 12 inchers.
Trout in Moose. Spring has trout but only worth while fishing on dark days, shallow and trout are spooky. Lake has trout, but not like it use to, people are eating them. Where, any where. This year only one small one about 15 inches, last year two-one 26 inches and one 27 inches. Using fly's and lots and lots of casting. Good Luck.
