East Lake fishing report 8/15/16

I had some really good days up there in the last week. One day was great on Black Chironomids (#12-14) in about 18 feet of water, and the other day was more callibaetis (nymphs, emergers!!! and some dries)

The Harrop Captive Dun was getting confident takes when other flies were not even getting looks.

Very good wind drifting for Kokanee on the east side of the lake. They love callibaetis nymphs, and my favorite fly is the non beaded flashback PT.

Ive been trying leeches and getting a few trout on Black Wooly Buggers, but I find you need to fish deeper water and go with a Type 3 line.

    • Dang that wind. Do you have double anchors? (Bow and Stern). That really helps me in the wind. I’m the guide in the big red Alumaweld Talon that says the Fly Fisher’s Place on the side. Say hello if you see up there.
