Today we fished on Keswick Reservoir for rainbow and brown trout.  We caught several shaker rainbows, but ended up catching 4 nice multi pound trout as well.  I trolled today instead of running up high to backtroll plugs.  A gold Arctic Fox Trolling Fly started out as the hot bait, but I lost it on a shoal on our first pass down stream.  Our Mack's Lure Gold Hum Dinger 1/2 oz. spoon produced the rest of our fish for the morning.  Lots of debris in the water today so trolling was more difficult than expected, but overall we had a great morning!
