An early spring fishing trip in April included Monster Lake, just 10 miles south of Cody, Wyoming. Though snow in Montana on the way there made the travel treacherous, our arrival at the lake the next day, blessed us with warm sunny skies. Though we basked in the warmth of the spring day, the water temperature was still struggling to reach 45 degrees. Clear skies, and an intermittent ripple on the water made it the perfect morning to entice trout rising to feed on a midge hatch. I caught my largest trout in 4 feet of water along the shore line edges. Check out this video of me catching a monster trout at Monster Lake:
This excellent fishing experience helped banish the memory of the long, cold, rainy winter months.
I hope to get back there for the sedge hatch which I hear is epic. That should occur in July. If you are interested in learning more about Monster Lake, give me a call and I will share with you information about this very special gem, one that belongs on any angler’s bucket list!
