Good Chironomid Action & A Lot of Brown Trout

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:

East lake is my other sweet spot this week. Pretty much the same plan as on Paulina. I know from looking at notes that East lake in August has typically been some of my best Chironomid action and a lot of brown trout.
Callibaetis are hatching and can be very important. 

Beetles and Ants and even grasshoppers on the bank line is good. 
Still seeing a lot of damsel action both dry and nymph and working the weed beds and shore line with a nymph is great and can be a fun hunt if you’re walking the shore looking for cruising trout. 

It’s getting to be a great time to get there at dawn (really as the light is just starting to happen) and fish Chub streamers in the shallows. The big trout will be chasing the chubs early. Trophy Hunting with a fly rod!
