Never kept Summer Trout before with a Lake Surface Temp at 87.3 degrees but I had two frozen water bottles over them in the cooler and smoked them when I got home.

Big surprise drifting over 22 feet of Water using a drift sock and scoring this beautiful rainbow at 12:30 pm today..Was quick to get her back in the water without a measurement as the water temp was 84 on the surface .She swam away fine . I 'm guessing 2# ,16.5" .Hit a Buck tail Jig I tied on an 1/8th oz. Eagle Claw Ball head Jig hook .I attached a Mister Twister Yellow Curl tail that I soaked in Vegetable Oil and Vanilla extract .

Ringwood Brook in May it's Dragonflies but I missed the hatch. 1/2 crawlers and a Spin Fly caught though in the rain. June is notoriously Crayfish bait month. Caught a Ringwood Brook , May is dragon fly Hatch but I missed it .Empty husks were on the rocks by the stream. 1/2 Crawlers and a Spin fly worked on Trout ,Bluegills and Fatheads in the rain though. June is Crayfish bait month.Caught an Anomaly of a Trout abnormally wide and abnormally short in length.Gonna try to get an answer from the state.
