The best mid-summer tactic seems to be big flies for big fish

Marlette Lake - Washoe County, NV (Washoe County)

by Nevada Department of Wildlife

The trailhead parking area and visitors center at Spooner is currently under construction limiting access from the Spooner trailhead. This means fishing has been excellent with very little traffic. The best mid-summer tactic seems to be big flies for big fish. Retrieving larger streamers near deep water from shore, or trolling them behind a float tube with a sinking line has been excellent. A few fish have been seen on the surface early in the day. Damsels and midge will continue to be the most productive flies next to the larger streamers and leech patterns.
