East Lake Update 7/18/18

While East has continued to fish well things have changed a little in the past week or so. An Easterly wind has pushed many of the fish out of the shallows, where they’ve been gorging on the amazing Callibaetis hatches we’ve been seeing, and into deeper water.

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.

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 …
