Fishing Conditions-Fair to Good: Lake opens on October 1st. We should have an up to date report next week.
Here are some gear/fly recommendations from Miles: "During the day we spent on the lake last week we had our best luck on balanced leeches in darker colors yesterday but were also catching a handful on midges and other nymphs mostly in the 6-9 foot range. The strip bite has also begun to kick into gear big time, and using midnight cowboys, buggers, boobies or beetles can be a great way to break up the monotony of staring at a bobber. This method is best fished on areas with a gradual drop off and a continuous sandy bottom, to increase the time spent with you flies in front of fish and to avoid any hang-ups on the bottom, a type 3-5 sinking line is sufficient this time of year as fish hang higher in the water column. The bite seems very spread out amongst most of the beaches and overall we saw the best bite window mid-morning and late afternoon with a slight lull in the action around 12-3 (a good time to take a break and get some lunch and a beer!)."
