East Lake was good this week. I was finding Callibaetis hatches on both Monday and Tuesday. Funny thing was monday was an afternoon hatch and tuesday was a morning hatch. Beetles are taking some nice fish along the shorelines. Damsels are hatching well, so nymphing the shoreline (wading is better than the boat as you can retrieve the fly in the direction the natural nymphs are moving which is towards shore to hatch). Chironomid fishing in 15 to 18 feet is good. Another good nymping tactic for us this week was a callibaetis nymph hung under an indicator at about 4 or 5 feet but fishing in 10 to 15 feet of water. Really caught some great fish with that, especially later in the afternoon.
