Today I went to Knuppenberg Lake with my Cortland 9' fly rod and a carpenter ant fly. I was wearing boots so I waded out far enough to cast where all of the surfacing fish were. I made long casts right in the fishes rising ring. I forgot to mention that I was using 3 foot leader also. Anyway, a couple of minutes later I caught a beautiful 15" cutthroat. I released it hoping the trout will grow bigger. I soon caught others. The water is so clear, you can see all the fish with in 20 feet of you. Awesome lake to fly fish and to throw in a worm and a bobber. Its right off HWY 12 before White pass. I highly recommend it.

Hi Gabe-

Welcome to the Troutnut forum. And, glad you outing to Knuppenburg Lake was productive. Incidentally, according to the latest WDFW stocking report, that lake is planted with Brown Trout.

Best regards,
