Nope, I'm not a local on Dragon, but I wish to be one day. I live in Prince George, only an hour and a half from home. I fish this lake all the time in the spring and the fall. Last year ice off was on march 25th or so. My first day on the water was march 27th. I should be out there on the weekend of april 15th.
My favourite chironie pattern is black and red ribbing with a silver bead head. I have been having more success on the fluorocarbon leader too!! But, to be fair, I am starting to see more fish caught on a black or purple microleech with red ribbing and silver bead head.
Good luck guys and hope to see you out there!!!
I'm the red fish cat boat with all the goodies on it ...haha.
