Report Date:


Blood Midges are hatching in the mornings and that is usually followed up by a Callabaetis hatch. There is still some shoreline fishing and fish are still cruising in the shallows. Fish are being caught a bunch of different ways so you can start with your favorite technique and go from there. Blood Midges and Callabaetis Nymphs fished under an indicator in 4-12 feet of water have been producing especially on days when there is a little chop on the water. You can also go "Floater No Cator" style and get similar results. A variety of flies fished with intermediate and type II sinking lines can also be effective.
