The smaller lakes have had plenty of success under the indicator presentation. Balanced leeches, or callibaetis nymphs can do the trick as well as stripping wooly buggers when fishing gets slow. Terrestrials can be just as productive as the Calliebaties dries, so the flying ants and beetle patterns are a must have. These lakes are very popular for paddleboarding and kayaking so beating the crowds in the early mornings or later evenings for fishing is your best bet.
