Big fish are moving into the shallows! Though this time of year lacks the consistency of early spring we are catching large fish daily. The indicator bite has been best. Dark balanced leeches spaced 3 feet apart at depths ranging from 10-15 feet. There has been a good morning bite, but the bite from 12-3 has been more consistent and this is the time we are netting the larger fish. 

A storm is moving in for the next few days as well. This should give the lake a good stir and cool the surface more enticing the LCT into shallower water. The extended forecast looks good as well with very few bluebird days for the next two weeks. Historically, bluebird, sunny, calm days can make fishing difficult. 

Flies we suggest: Balanced Leech ( peacock midnight and Diablo), Booby (Deadpool and Cat Whisker), Holographic Midge, Jigged Mini Leech, Pyramid Lake Dozen
