East Lake is Getting The 2nd Brood of Callibaetis in Good Numbers

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:


East Lake is getting the 2nd brood of Callibaetis in good numbers and the fish are looking up to that hatch. I look forward to being back there Monday to hit that hatch. 

Chironomids are working deep in about 15 to 20′ of water. Everyday the color and size may be different, but I would start with a 16 red on the bottom and an olive zebra midge on the dropper. Catch one and do the throat pump to see what the size and color really is…

Terrestrial fishing along the banks is a good bet and will continue to be. I’ve caught fish in beetles in the snow, so even if it gets cold it works.
