After a week of heavy rain, leaving our local waters completely blown out and trout fishing out of the question – we decided to hit up a nearby lake in search of Pike. Rain and thunder storms were still in the forecast for Saturday, but we seem to have the best luck fishing for pike in those kind of conditions, so off we went. It turned out to be an awesome day with great friends, vicious pike takes and some nice landed fish…

We may all be longing for dry flies and summer days (I know I am) but this little pike trip made the rain and high waters a little more bearable.
