Marlette opened on the 15th of this month, and is fishing well from reports we have gotten at the shop.. Crowds have been minimal. Chironomids under a slip indicator have worked well as well as small streamer patterns with a suppleflex leader on a Type II-IV line. As with most high elevation lakes food sources are scarce so fish are willing to take a variety of flies and are forgiving when flies are not presented exactly. Hatches of midges, baetis, and ants are possible so make sure to have your box loaded with dry flies and spools of smaller tippet, 5x and 6x. Hoppers should play a lead role soon as dry, hot and windy conditions continue.
