East Lake FIshing Report

East Lake - La Pine, OR (Deschutes County)

by The Fly Fishers Place

East Lake was tougher yesterday than on Sunday. Maybe related to the Full Moon? I think so.

There are still A LOT of rainbows trying to spawn around the edges of the lake now. When they are done and spread themselves back out across the lake and go in to a regular feeding pattern, I am sure we will see a lot of improvement.

There are no callibaetis yet. Seems late to me, so hopeful we will see them get going next week.

We had fish yesterday nymphing chironomids in shallow water (under 12 feet) and out in about 16 feet. Also, fishing a Type 3 full sink with a black leech produced some good fish.
With no callibaetis hatching, that limits the dry fly choices to Ants and Beetles. We’ve been getting some fish on both.

I rate East as good, but not easy at the moment.
