Fishing has been decent at Hosmer Lake. It’s likely that there are less than 3 weeks left to access Hosmer and other high elevation lakes. Things slowed down slightly last week when the rain and snow came in but now that the weather cleared, fishing should be good. Callibaetis are the solo performer when it comes to surface flies. You can still use a chubby as an indicator if that’s what you prefer. Dark assassins, callibaetis nymphs, chironomids, and midges have been hot subsurface flies, mostly smaller than size 16. Balanced leeches and leeches on the strip have been getting attention as well. You could even throw a streamer in front of a brookie or two to try and get an aggressive reaction. The paddlers are gone and the fish want to fatten up, don’t miss your chance!
