Fished Cady today from 11-6. No fish until after 3:00. Fished entire lake top to bottom with a variety of flies. Big fish were rising and jumping when it was calm. Figured fish were in top 10'. With full sink did immediate strip back of flash bugger (Mt leech/Phil's leech) after midrange cast. Two fish in 5 minutes, both 5-6lb pigs. Caught 1 more before 5:00. Fish still rising when I left.
The plants done 5/12 were .16 per pound or 6.25 lb. The pic doesn't do fish justice.
A former PSFF member, Bill, from Ollala/Gig Harbor now. Don't recall last name. But Bill shared twice this year a truck/boat came to launch and left when he was there. He and others had tough days or were skunked early May. He reported these suspected bait poachers to WDFW. They also suspect poaching has been occurring across the Thuya area. They plan to do camera surveillance. The extra plant of 6lb fish was a result of Bill's report to WDFW. I give a big thanks to Bill and especially to WDFW for listening and responding.
BTW, Bill caught 4 pigs on the bottom with chironomids. So much for my theory.
Reminder a club outing is planned 6/9 back at Cady. It looks to be a wet day
