The bugs are coming off, logged my best 1/2 day of this season today with 25 to net, had a hunch today's low wind forecast after 3 days of rain/sleet snow would be good and it was. All on chironomids and all but 2 in the 18-22" range. Did not have one other boat/toon/tube in the area I was fishing the entire outing, very pleasant, when a snow squall started pushing through from the West the fish shutdown and the wind clocked up to 15+, also had one small pike on a SJ worm.

Has the water level come up at all?

Water level is still down 39% or 61% of capacity, here's a link to Aurora's website.

Thanks Bill, good to hear that things have picked up at the pond. I've got the the Spinney Jones going. I need to have a day..... but it's fishing you get what's on the plate. Weather, hatches etc. However, 25 Spinney fish is awesome. I need to get up next Saturday. If things work out for me. I'll bring your midges. I hope they are close enough to what your buddy tied. I2
