The fishing on Lewiston Lake California. was fantastic on Friday 10 Jan.  In little less then five hours using small PT nymphs and small leeches, over 75 Rainbow Trout were caught and released.  Using a full slow strip on the retrieve, the hit was followed by a strip set which seemed to be most effective in a solid hooking up of the fish.  Many casts resulted in a hook up or at least a grab.

The size ranged from 12 inches to a solid 20 inch fish. All were in excellent winter condition. Here are the links for the flies which performed the best:
