East Lake Update 7/26/19

Callibaetis are still the ticket up there with bugs coming off in the mornings and throughout the day. Ill fish a cripple pattern on 5x when the hatch starts and switch to an adult later in the morning. Once we find fish that are feeding it can take a couple fly changes to dial in …

East Lake Update 7/18/19

The Callibaetis hatch on East is very strong right now, and stillwater dry fly opportunities are about as good as they’ll ever get.
