Good Fishing on Paulina Lake

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:

Sharing. Collaboration. That is what makes the world go around in a positive way, and it is no different on the lakes. Maybe the waters are a “Pequod” or microcosm of the world we anglers live in? I like to think so. And while nothing is perfect, it is damn good in most cases. 
I had my 1st trip to Paulina this week, on a glorious weather day (Wednesday) and thanks to some good advice from friends Timmy and Gary and especially Andy (and his fishing buddy who I am sorry I don’t know his name) we got dialed in some flies that made the day! 
So here was the scoop from the lake. We started out with a couple of fish on an olive and red balanced leech but it went quiet on that. My friends Tim and Gary were doing well on a black leech with a pink bead, and grey chironomids. We moved to a new area near a couple of anglers I see frequently on the lakes and have tremendous respect for their skills and knowledge. They were hammering the fish and shares they were using small olive chironomid pupa. I changed to that for my clients and we had a really productive day thanks to Andy and his friend. 
I love that, and whether that sharing of knowledge comes from the lake, the parking lot, instagram or a fishing report I think it is important that we connect through this gift of collaboration. 
Scuds, 2 Bit Hookers, Beetles and Ants are also patterns you need for Paulina.
