Good news from a couple of the Lakes in the region. South Twin and Haystack are open and fishing at Haystack is outstanding, and so far S. Twin is slow to fair, but ought to turn on quick with the warm weather coming.

Friends this week at Haystack had tons of luck with Olive Balanced Leeches. My friend who fished South Twin got his fish on a type 5 line stripping a Chartreuse Bead Olive Leech, but said 5 of the 6 fish hit on the hang at the end of the strip. The HANG is important, as so many lake fish follow the stripped fly, and eat it once the rod tip is raised to make the fly twitch vertically, and then hang there for a moment. It is also an exciting take.
