Our Report

BEST TECHNIQUES:

Dry-droppers in shallow water.

*Water is getting pretty warm. Take care releasing fish. If you can avoid fishing the hottest part of the day, do it.

OUR TIPS OF THE WEEK:

1. Look for damsel flies throughout the day and smaller caddis in the evenings.
2. Trail a damsel nymph or midge pupa behind a dry.
3. Learning to double haul will increase distance and ability to cast in windy conditions.

*Water is getting pretty warm. Take care releasing fish. If you can avoid fishing the hottest part of the day, do it.

7 DAY OUTLOOK:

Smaller caddis are out in the evenings. Great dry fly fishing for the lake’s trophy fish!

*Water is getting pretty warm. Take care releasing fish. If you can avoid fishing the hottest part of the day, do it.
