Thinking of trying Jones as I have never been there. Any suggestions as to time of year and what set up to use out of a tube would be helpful.

Thanks 8)

I usually start thinking about hitting Jones around May, although I'm sure lots of people like to go earlier on in the spring. I only chuck flys on still waters, and Jones is ideal for that...especialy from a tube. Rolled Muddlers, Spratleys, leeches and Epoxy Minnow patterns all work well fished off a dry or a sink tip line. There's a healthy population of stickleback in the lake, and the cuttys love'em. So the minnow imitations can come in handy. If your in a tube, concentrate your efforts near the many sunken logs and dead heads that dot the lake near both campgrounds, as the cuttys seem to lay near or under them waiting to ambush anything that swims by. Working the shore lines, just on the inside of the drop off can produce as well. Besides the chance at hooking up with triploid cutty's, the lake inhabits small rainbows, and Kokanee...So some days you can get a mixed bag of different fish.

If gear's your thing then, trolling or spin casting small wedding bands with a worm works well...

Green Woolly Bugger and Black Doc Spratleys have also been effective in this lake.

Has anyone heard of there been mineral mining and testing up near the lake we were doing some test pitting onthe north lower slope last year. The fellow we were digging for was talking of some company that was supposed to be mining the upper slopes near the lake. Just curious if any one heard anything about it . Found some cool old mine shafts up there.

Jones is pretty descent during the summer also small trout can be caught from the boat launch shore pretty fun trolling the lake has given good results too!

Jones is always a consistent lake for catching fish any time when the water is open.

Beadhead Rolled Muddler and Beadhead Green Leeches are my 2 favs.
A buddy of mine trolls a Tom Thumb around and does great.
