Lava Lake is accessible and fishing pretty well from what we’ve heard. Access is decent but the boat ramps can be tricky due to low water. The water is off color so indicator fishing with larger flies, like balanced leeches, is a great tactic. Stripping leeches and streamers on a fairly slow retrieve is also a good way to get the job done. Chironomids and midges are also good bets, they’ll likely be the most productive once the water clears up.

Suggested Flies: Black or Red Zebra Midge #16-18, Black or Red Chironocone #14-18, Grey Gillie Midge #16, Tiger Midge #16-18, Olive Juju Chironomid #14, Dark Assassin #14-18, Bird’s Nest HE #14-18, Bird’s Nest or Black Depth Charge #16-18, Bruised or Olive Balanced Leech #10-14, Ruby Leech #10-12, Agent Black #14-16, Olive or Black BH Mini Leech #12, Thin Mint #10-12, Black Wooly Bugger #10-12
