Lava Lakes Reports 6/18/21

Fishing has been good up at the Lava Lakes. The most productive technique is going to be indicator fishing; however, stripping flies and dry dropper techniques have great potential. Terrestrials are good to throw on if you’re looking for dry fly action and dropping a nymph under one can be deadly. It pays off to be prepared with callibaetis duns and cripples, you wouldn’t want to miss out on a big hatch. For subsurface flies, callibaetis nymphs and chironomids are excellent. Size 14 - 18 is a good place to start, but now that the weather is warming up give some larger chironomids a try. Leeches and damsels have potential, especially the damsels. Fish balanced patterns under an indicator or strip the non-weighted patterns with an intermediate or sinking line. Enjoy the mountain views and hungry fish up there!
