Paulina Lake Fishing Report

The Fly Fishers Place

Report Date:

I ran my 1st guide trip at Paulina yesterday. It was an interesting day. The camp grounds and boat launches at Paulina Lake CG and Little Crater CG are snowed in. So I launched at the resort ($5 launch fee) and found water temps to be 39 to 49, averaging LOW 40’s. That worried me a bit, but the bite was good on intermediate lines and small leeches. There were a number of reddish brown #16 chironomids hatching, we stuck with stripping leeches instead of indicator fishing yesterday but I bet a red ice cream cone would have been good in 6 to 10 feet of water.
