The Lava Lakes are fishing well. It seems that the water is starting to clear up a bit and fish are looking around for bugs. Keep using balanced leeches but consider sizing them down as the water clears up. Chironomids, midges and other lake nymphs are a great bet. We have some great looking balanced black assassins and birds nests that have potential at the Lava Lakes. It’s a bit early to put all your faith into damsel nymphs, but they also have potential. Stripping leeches, damsels and small streamers can be a nice break from staring at an indicator.
