Fishing has been pretty good for the last couple of weeks. Patience has been key, as fish are coming in to eat a few times a day so it is best to get to a beach and wait for the school of Lahontan Cutthroat Trout to go by. I have been fishing both floating line and sinking line throughout the day. Mornings have been best under the indicator and the evenings are best retrieving. Midges are starting to wain as far as activity goes and were focusing on dual balanced leech rigs. For the retrieving setup, we have been using two boobies in contrasting colors and allowing the fish to decide the color fly that they want. The Cat whisker and Deadpool Boobie have been best. As always with the winter season fish totals will be low but the size of fish should be greater on average. 

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