Fishing has been improving at East Lake as the water clears up. The extreme heat wave is likely going to push fish deeper. Terrestrials and callibaetis will still be on the menu but I wouldn’t expect amazing surface action until temperatures get back down to normal. Focus your efforts on damselfly nymphs. Strip them slowly or put a balanced damsel under an indicator. Callibaetis and chironomids are good choices to put under an indicator and so are scuds. Balanced leeches can serve as a perfect attractor pattern. Stripping a leech or a streamer can cover more water than an indicator and it offers more involved fishing. Fish will probably be fairly inactive during the hottest part of the day. Make sure to stay safe during the heat. Sun protection and lots of water are your best friend in high elevation heat.
