White Mountains Report

Spent the last 4 days (10/5 to 10/8) in the White Mountains.  The conditions were perfect, highs in the upper 60s to low 70s during the day, lows in the 30s at night.  Fished Pacheta Lake Tuesday afternoon and it was fabulous.  focused in and around where the stream comes into the lake.  The Browns were busy spawning in the stream(make sure and leave them to do their business).  Fished Chironomids under a strike indicator all day long.  Black and red were the best colors.  Went to a dry/dropper at about 5 when they started coming up to the top.  Spent a couple of hours at Drift Fence Lake on Wednesday afternoon with my 10 year old son and he had a blast.  Fish were in any spot there was a little shade and they were very willing to take an Adams.  Also added a chironomid dropper which worked great.  If you are looking for a sure thing, I would try Drift Fence Lake soon.
