Default Lake tabeaud?

I've fished it a few times with crickets and worms but never with a fly rod anyone here know of what would work well? I know there are some nice browns in there and would love to hook into one!

Hey Ricky...I guess no one has been there. It looks like that's a fairly low elevation res so it'll be warmish and the fish will likely be deep. I'd fish it from a tube, towing a bugger or streamer with a nymph/scud/midge dropper and I'd be changing flies and depths til I found something willing to eat.

It looks like there's water coming in thru a tube and power plant. If that's right and there's oxygenated cooler water in that arm, I'd go there first and toss the same stuff at them that's working for you in the valley tailwaters...sorry if this is too late to help...hoppers/beetles/ants might be the ticket this time of year too for a surface bite. -Mike

Hey Mike you are correct about the water coming in. Thats actually where I always fished before bouncing worms off the bottom alot of little browns there in the 6 inch range. I'm not sure of the depth of the lake maybe by this fall I'll have a float tube and can get out and try it when hopefully the waters a little colder.
