With the drop in temp and the North wind my expectations for todays fishing was low. I just wanted to be out on a lake, any lake and enjoy the day. When Robert invited me to join him on Whitney I jumped at the opportunity. We met and launched at Loafers Bend, 6:30am. Went NE to Towash creek flats and set up a drift. The day started with a lot of dinks and a few good ones mixed in. It was so relaxing and comfortable that we didn't care that most were small (all catch and release). Then we found some decent stripers and that made it even better. As the morning progressed we caught some nice sandies and a few striper on top, slab, rattle trap, just about any lure we would throw. The best combo was fly on top and small to medium sized chrome minnow shaped slab on bottom. We worked one hump for a good hour catching fish after fish and many doubles (see pic). When one hump played out we would move around until we marked fish again then slab that hump. 15-20 fow seemed to produce the best fish. Traditional slabbing, drop to the bottom and jig did not work near as well as drop down through the school and reel back up through them. A lot of schooles were suspended 5-20 fow. Ended the day back on the dinks but we had a wonderful time on a great lake and a great day to be out.

Typical double Robert and I both caught.

Glad to see the bigger whites are coming back around. Been a strange year for us this year.
