Paulina Lake is fair to good. Small nymphs on the shoreline fishing the drop offs, and olive balanced leeches on the shoals have been best. Yesterday we ended a guid trip fishing olive chironomids (based on a throat pump sample taken from a fish that ate a size 18 red zebra midge at 16 feet). There were some flying ants around and fish were looking up, but they shied away from our dry fly offerings for the most part. One of the best parts about Paulina is no one is there fly fishing compared to all the other lakes. I love the solitude.
