Paulina Lake was good this week. We found fish on Chironomids and Beetles. One of my clients had a hell’uva grab stripping a big rabbit hair streamer along a drop off. I’d have like to see that fish. 

We’ve been having a lot of success with Balanced Leeches too. Especially Olive. It’s been a great alternative to East as I’ve found the water a little cooler and safer for the fish over the hot weather period we had. That is likely because it is 50% bigger (@1500 acres compared to East at 1000 acres) and so much deeper.
