spent a three day camping trip a lake williams capmground, fly fished each day. i was with my dad, uncle, and their buddy, but they used conventional tackle for the most part. we all went out in our yaks and they managed to scrape together a few largemouth bass by using soft plastics such as lizards and blue worms they rigged weedless. i used flys that imitate bait fish, hoping for large mouth and pickeral seeing as there are not any trout in lake williams. i had great luck with purple, light blue, and bright yellow colored flies picking up sixteen decent pickeral, i caught one small one being only ten inches but the rest ranged from fourteen to eighteen inches long. i also caught one pumpkin seed in a cove i deemed "pickeral cove" because every time i fished it i caught at least two pickeral. the pumpkin seed weighed nearly a pound and i had never seen one that thick or large before.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
