    Default Clearwater Lake February 13th

    We had great weather for our first trip to Clearwater Lake. We owe a big thanks to Dr. Hagan for his hospitality in having us out. In all, dozens of trout were caught between the 8-10 members who showed up. All three species of trout in the lake were caught (Rainbow, Brook and Brown) as well as a few small bass. Some fished with the fly rod, but most of us had good luck on the light tackle with small jigs and in-line spinner baits.

    Enjoy the pictures and be sure to come out next time!

    It would be nice to have more club members fly fish next time. The difference between landing these fish on a fly rod (as oppose dto spinning tackle) is quite simply amazing.
    I was using a dry fly with a light tippet, and one 16" Rainbow trout gave me all I could handle for about 4 minutes. On a spinning rod, that fight would have been over in 30 seconds, at best.

    I have a spare fly rod to lend, and the Lake had 3. Let's encourage it.

    Such a fun place to fish in Chapel Hill. I went a few rounds with some 16" fish last spring out there...and second Henry's statement.
