Joes Valley on a windy day
I fished JV today in my tube from 10:30 until 2:30 and only managed to pick up two splake and two cutthroats. I wanted to fish the south end of the lake but when I got there whitecaps were already on the water. I ended up launching on the north end of the reservoir, across from the Sportsman's Lodge.

I used a medium sinking line and a size 4 bead head black/silver crystal bugger. I fished in 10' - 20' of water and I did not mark very many fish. I didn't have to give the fly much movement, the waves were doing it for me.Wink

The water temp was 40 degrees and the visibility in the water was about 5'. The reservoir is at 75% full (down about 15' from full) and stable.

It was a slow day of fishing but the soft water options are becoming more scares.Unsure

You are a tough dude, to get out there in a tube this time of the year, especially in a wind, glad you caught a few fish. Thanks for the report.
