My friend Dennis Beich invited me to join him for a morning of fishing on Billy Clapp Lake last Friday. We had fished there a couple of weeks ago, and only got one fish, so we wanted to give it another try. Usually, we get a lot of nice rainbow on Billy Clapp this time of year. We made our way up the lake to the area above the big basalt island, and there were fish rising everywhere. There was some kind of hatch going on and the fish were actively feeding. Maybe that’s why they weren’t interested in what we were offering them. We trolled all kinds of plugs, and Dennis even tried trolling a fly, and still nothing. So, we put our trout gear away and pulled out our walleye gear and headed up to the top end of the lake. This is where we have both caught walleye in the past. There were three or four other boats fishing in the same area, but no one was catching anything. It may be too early. I will use this for an excuse anyway. We still had a great time. It was a beautiful day to be on the water.
