Reports from the opener were all excellent. The lake is currently full and will likely overtake the south end of the lake as the remaining snowmelt enters the lake. Shore fishing will continue to be good until vegetation takes hold with the summer heat. Fly fisherman using callibaetis mayfly emergers, and parachute adams are finding fishing on the surface early in the day. Damsel nymphs and sheep creek specials have been excellent paired with a midge pupa under an indicator all day long. As the lake continues to heat up, look for the sinking lines and leech patterns to become more effective than the small dries and nymphs.
