Callibaetis hatches have been strong on the lake throughout the afternoon and usually a second go at it in the evening. Caddis and Midges are strong at dusk. Lot's of good fishing this week on Black Leeches. My guess is a lot of these are getting eaten because of the tadpoles getting ready to hatch … Continue reading Three Creeks Lake fishing report 7/20/19
lots of Callibaetis during the day, some damsels, ants, beetles, Chironomids and leeches. Fishing is very good from morning to dark. If you go in the morning or evening make sure to have bug spray. Lots of mosquitos looking to blood.
our favorite little lake is fishing well and access is all the way to the store. The fish are taking callibaetis, ants, beetles, Black X Caddis, leeches, Red Century Drive Midge, Chironomids, Damsel Nymphs and Mickey Finns. The fish are rising to hatches late morning and early afternoon and again in the evening to dark … Continue reading 3 Creeks Lake fishing report 6/28/19
fishing is great. you still can't drive all the way in, so no boat launch available yet. Either wade the edges or carry in a float tube, pontoon or light canoe. Leeches, Ants, Black Caddis, Callibaetis and Damsels are all on the menu.
Great news. Most of the snow up the road is gone with the exception of a large patch right at the top of the hill. It's an easy walk over the snow to the lake with a tube or for wading anglers. Launching a boat is not yet an option. Ice is off. Joe was … Continue reading Three Creeks Lake OPEN 6/10/19
Besides walking a mile up the hill over a snow covered road, some friends of mine also found the lake to be mostly covered in ice still as of 5/31/19.
USFS opened the gate today. While that sounds promising, let me assure you the lake is really not accessible to the average angler. The snow still comes down the hill from the lake a good mile. There is still a lot of snow at and around the lake. A lot. It's going to be a … Continue reading 3 Creeks Lake update 5/31/19
Still no access to 3 Creeks Lake. As of today the snow gate is still locked.
We always joke about when the 1st call will come into the shop asking "if 3 Creeks is Open?". The answer is No. Not even close. I'd say look for opening to be in mid to late June this year. There is nearly 100 inches of snow still at 6400 feet. BTW, the first call … Continue reading Three Creeks Lake
It's getting cold up on the lake at 6500 feet, so water temps are getting down there, but the fish are still active on the shorelines and out to about 10-12' off shore. Stripping Leeches and Micky Finns has been taking some great fish. Look for water boatman and scuds to be productive. Soft Hackles … Continue reading Three Creeks Lake report 10/3/18
