East Lake Update 7/7/18

Fishing on East has been good, with pretty consistent Callibaetis hatches and some Chironomid activity accounting for much of the feeding activity. The best opportunities to fish dries will be from midday through the afternoon, which is typically when the Callibaetis are out in greatest numbers. The fishing hasn’t been quite as hot as it …

East Lake Update 6/20/18

East has continued to fish well, with good numbers of Callibaetis providing excellent opportunity to fish dries. Mornings have been slower, and fishing small nymphs and Chironomids under an indicator is our preferred method until we see decent numbers of Callibaetis, typically around noon. Once the Callibaetis start to show themselves fish have been quick …

East Lake Update 6/13/18

We’ve been getting nothing but good reports from East Lake in the past week, and it should be as good a time as ever to head south for East’s famously consistent Callibaetis hatch.

East Lake Update 5/30

Fishing on East Lake has been fair to good. Some days are better than others but overall there are good numbers of fish being caught. Chironomids and other nymphs below an indicator have been producing fish, and retrieving leech patterns and wooly buggers should also provide some action. It’s still a little early for any …

East Lake 10/4 Update

One of the best times of year for fishing at East Lake is when the kokanee start moving towards the shallows for spawn and the trout follow them! We are noticing that kokanee are not totally out of the depths or pushing into the shallows yet. This should happen anytime. This has caused the Fall …

East Lake Update

The fishing up at East Lake has been pretty decent, despite the colder weather, water clarity and water temps. Seems like it takes awhile for the fish to start moving and eating, so being there super early is not necessary. The callibaetis hatch came off late in the morning and lasted for some time. A nice …

With the resort closed, a road condition report was hard to gather. East Lake is open year round but access may be limited. Check through odot for current road reports. In the early season expect to see productive action with streamers along the east side of the lake, just south of the day use boat …

East Lake- fishing in August

The fishing at East Lake has remained pretty decent throughout August! The smoky sky and the eclipse crowds over the past few weeks have left East Lake rather empty. It seems as the terrestrial fishing has pretty much shut off for the year. We are focusing on deep water chironomid fishing at this point. We …
