Fishing at Hosmer Lake Has Been Good

Fly and Field Outfitters

Report Date:

Fishing at Hosmer Lake has been good. The weather is looking cool and rainy this week which will likely make the best fishing time from noon till about 4 or so. I’d expect some really good callibaetis hatches, most will probably be around size 16 - 18 but some may get up to size 14. Terrestrials will only be out for a bit longer, if you’re gonna put one on it’s best to drop a nymph off the back. Nymphing has been good with all the typical lake patterns. Chironomids, callibaetis, and dark assassins in sizes 14 - 18 are great. Damsels still have some potential in the channel and leeches are good stripped or under an indicator. There are high chances of a big winter this year and the forecast shows signs of an early fall, get up to Hosmer before things get frigid. 


Suggested Dries: Thorax Callibaetis #14-16, Almost Dun Callibaetis #14-16, D&D Cripple #14-16, High-Vis Callibaetis #14-16, Rusty Spinner #16-18, CDC Flying Ant #16, Peacock Chubby Chernobyl #16

Suggested Nymphs: Bird’s Nest Hare’s Ear #16-18, Guide’s Choice Hare’s Ear #16-18, Dark Assassin #16-18, Black Two Bit Hooker #16-18, Flashback PT #16-18, Soft Hackle PT #16-18, Red Ice Cream Cone #14-18, Olive or Black Balanced Leech #12-16, Ruby Balanced Leech #14, Thin Mint #8-12, Olive or Brown Wooly Bugger #8-12
