The Lava Lakes Continue to Fish Well

Fly and Field Outfitters

Report Date:

The Lava Lakes continue to fish well. As the water clears up expect things to keep getting better. Access via boat ramps isn’t ideal due to low water. Plan to fish around water clarity. If the water is murky fish big leeches, either stripping or under an indicator. Streamers can work well too. Try to size up your chironomids and use one with some flash that’ll get the fish's attention. In clear conditions, midges, chironomids and small buggy lake nymphs will do the trick.
