Fishing is Off The Hook!

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:

Fishing is off the hook here, as some of the best days of the season are upon us. Huge numbers of trout have packed themselves in the creek channels and flats of the mud to feed on anything and everything they can. Streamer fishing is going strong this time of year as the fish have a variety of different sized perch to choose from. We are seeing consistent steady action all day long, from morning until dark. The weed beds are still thick around the lake and should continue to hold till the end of the boat season this year with plenty of water still in the lake. All species of trout have now fallen into a thicker concentration in the shallow and deeper water areas. Midge hatches are on the rise and the algae has bloomed but has not been any kind of a bite killer this year!

Best Flies: Parallel Assassin Dark and Light – 16; Assassin Dark and Light – 16; Parallel Punk Perch Dark and Light – 14, 16; Broken Back Dark Zebra Midge- 16; Crystal Tiger Midge Long -18; Broken Back Copper Tiger Midge – 18; Crystal Copper Tiger Midge – 18; Crystal Midge Pupa Black – 20; Crystal Caddis Larva Olive Copper – 18; Punk Perch Dark and Light – 14, 16; Damsel Nymph Dark and Light; Flashback Pheasant Tail Tungsten Black Head – 14, 16, 18.
