The Lake is On Fire!

The lake is on fire! Well not really, it just looks like smoke is rising from the shoreline as swarms of midges pair up for mating and lay their eggs on the water. The best fishing has been in the 20-24’ range in most areas and the lake has been rising a few inches a day causing the weeds to get deeper. The damselflies are out in force and the trout are capitalizing on this easy prey. The fish have been feeding tight to the mud bottom on most days and some days can be an all day bite even through the wind. McGee Bay, Sometimes Bay, Hilton Bays, Sandy Pt, and the north arm channel have been good spots. Copper Tiger Midges, Assassins, Damselfly nymphs, Zebra Midges, and Dark and Light Gillies are hot flies currently. We have had some epic days and this is only the beginning.  A lot of our first time young anglers have been connecting with some great fish this summer. Add some moms and dads in the mix of experiencing the best catching in the eastern sierra and you’ve got some great family memories!
