    I'm thinking of taking a trip up to Lenice for my bachelor party which would probably occur during the first week of September. I searched the forum and it appears that September is kind of on the brink of still being too warm to fish.

    Is Lenice generally cold enough to fish this early? I realize you can't predict the future, but I'm just hoping to get some opinions on whether or not this is a viable option, or if I should reconsider my plans all together. Thanks guys

    It would probably have to be somewhat toned down. I think the desert dirt is too hard to get a stripper pole into

    I am interested as well as to how the fishing is that time of year. I've got a few fair weather co-workers that have asked what the whole fly fishing thing is about and thought a trip to Lenice might be a good intro. Spring weather seems a bit too much for their first time. I'll be over there Wednesday night with a couple buddies. We'll be fishing Lenice for a couple days and then off to Dry falls to finish the weekend. I'll be fishing from my Scadden Skykomish and fishing with twin brothers. As far as the stripper pole goes, there are options.

    Vegas wouldn't exist with that mentality.Thank God someone persevered and managed to get some stripper poles into the hardpan;)

    Update.... I think I'm going to go to diamond lake in Oregon instead. Its less of a drive, and people won't be frustrated and forced to fly fish if they don't want to
    It'll be fun, but dammit do I miss lenice and its overabundance of strippers!

    If you're thinking about hitting that part of Oregon, you may want to consider driving a bit further and fishing East lake. Chironomid fishing should be really good and I believe your buddies can throw gear. They also have some pretty decent cabins to rent.

    Meant to say calibaetis hatch should be good. I was up tying chironomids until about 12:30 last night and still have them on the brain.

    That boat is sweet!

    And I actually have been considering East Lake, I heard the Callibaetis hatch is legendary and there are some monster browns in there

    The brookies and Atlantics are not all that large but there are some big ol' browns in East. And yup, the Calli hatch lasts most of the summer.

    When I fish East, I target the browns.
