Fun Fishing With Short Leaders

Doug Rodricks

Report Date:

It’s no secret that the upcoming months will be some of the best fishing on the lake. With most fish being caught in shallow water, it has been fun fishing with short leaders. The streamer bite has also picked up along the weed edges and in the channels. It’s an all day bite here when you can stay on the fish. Location and depth play a big part in getting bites throughout the day. Some days the fish are on midges and others on bigger meals. Many fish are full of daphnia, but that is not a problem with so many different types of feed available to them. Water temperatures have been playing a role in feeding behavior, so keep an eye on that. Surface temps have been hitting over 70 degrees during the afternoons.

#12-16 Parallel Punk Perch Dark and Light, #16 Parallel Assassin Light, #14-18 Assassin Dark, #16 Parallel Assassin Dark, #16-20 Crystal Copper Tiger Midge, #18-22 Crystal Tiger Midge Long, #18-22 Crystal Chironomid Emerger Black, #18-22 Gillie light and dark pupa, #14-16 Level Leech, and Damsel Nymph dark and Light.
