After a week of pretty slow fishing due to inclement weather and the lake’s surface temps dropping 6 degrees in a week, the LCT are settling into the colder water and feeding in the afternoons. We’re picking up some cruising fish in the early morning under windicators with balanced leeches, but the main bite has been in the afternoons retreiving boobies and beetles. The fish are mixed whether they want the Cat Whisker, white and chartreuse boobie of the Deadpool, black and red boobie, so I have been fishing both with a little split shot 6-8 inches in front of my last boobie to keep it closer to the bottom. 

As always, a little bit of wind and chop is key to productive days, and with another few storms in the forecast we should have some great fishing up ahead. As the surface temps at the lake begin dropping below 45 degrees remember that quality is king over quantity. You fish more hours for less fish, but the average fish should be a much a greater size.

Flies We Suggest: Boobies (Martini Olive, Cat Whisker, Diablo), Pyramid Lake Beetle, Bellyache Minnow, Jans Tui-Chub, Balanced Leech, Holographic Midge
