Fishing has been consistently productive at the Twin Lakes. The forecast is showing some cool and rainy days for this week. This could create some great conditions for dry fly and streamer fishing. With cooler temperatures, you can expect the callibaetis hatches to be during the warmer parts of the day. Most of the callibaetis have been around size 16 - 18 but there may be some size 14s mixed in during overcast days. Action with terrestrial patterns is tapering off but they still work great as indicators. The best subsurface flies have been callibaetis, chironomids, dark assassins, and birds nests, sizes 14 - 18 should do the trick. Nymphing has been productive in a variety of different water depths. If you’re going super deep, balanced leeches and chironomids perform really well. With cloud cover, streamers and leeches can be super productive, especially considering that the fish need to fatten up before winter. Speaking of winter, it’s coming fast. Ocean conditions show a high probability of a La Nina winter which usually means a big winter, great news for lessening drought conditions.
