Lava Lake is accessible and fishing pretty well from what we’ve heard. Access is decent but the boat ramps can be tricky due to low water. The water is off color so indicator fishing with larger flies, like balanced leeches, is a great tactic. Stripping leeches and streamers on a fairly slow retrieve is also a good way to get the job done. Chironomids and midges are also good bets, they’ll likely be the most productive once the water clears up.
