East Lake was slower yesterday. We did get fish on Red Tarantula, Beetles, Damsel Adults, Foam Ants from right on the shoreline out to about 15 feet of depth 30 to 100 yards off the shore.

Water temps in the AM at launch were 67, but did hit that scary 70 degree mark in the shallows during the afternoon.

Fishing deeper water with an indicator down at 16 to 20 feet is good. Little Zebra Midges (red or black) and Olive Ice Cream Cones are good. Somedays a Chromie is a good bet too.

If you have a fish finder and can find the schools that are seeking deeper and cool water a type 7 line is great in the morning with a deep fished chromie and a bead head prince. It’s called the dangle and it works.
