East Lake is good too, but not as good as Paulina right now. Sounding like a broken record here, but use Beetles….They are good.  Purple Haze, Olive Haze, Light Cahill, #18 Pmd Extended Body (to match the light colored Callibaetis now). 

Brad and Eric from the shop were there over the weekend and caught fish on Balanced leeches and Vampire Leeches, Beetles and small mayflies. 

This can be a good time of year for chironomids about 12 to 16 feet deep over a mixed mud and weed bottom. Also, try water boatman now, and streamers that look like chubs.
