Spinner Fall And Brown Caddis On East Lake

Spinner Fall And Brown Caddis On East Lake

Despite the crowds and the daily paddle board hatch on East Lake, the fishing has been great. If you are fishing along the East shoreline, fishing with callibaetis spinners and brown caddis on top will prove to be effective. The callibaetis spinners and brown caddis are coming off in the morning with the hatch lasting a few hours.  The callibaetis hatch is strong, coming off around 11am and lasting until around 2 pm. When you see the adults cruising around switch over to a callibaetis dry, parachute adams, or purple haze. We have noticed that fish are not totally on the dry so fishing a dry dropper rig can be effective. Using a midge dropper, sz 18-20, 2-3 feet below your dry fly will be effective.

If you are fishing the hump, midges under the strike indicator have been our go to. FIshing a dark assassin (16-18) with a midge dropper (18-20) can be effective. If the fishing on top is tough. Switch over to wind drifting with an intermediate line. This can yield Kokanee and smaller rainbows.
