East Lake Fish Report for 5-28-2021
East Lake is Clearing Up and Fishing Pretty Well
East Lake - La Pine, OR (Deschutes County)
by The Fly Fishers Place
East Lake is clearing up and fishing pretty well. Still some spawners along the banks I encourage people to leave alone. It will make for a healthier fishery in a week or 2 more if we do that. Their energy is on that and stressing them to fight your line is not a good deal for their health.
There are plenty of fish to catch in the deeper areas from 4 to 15 feet. Chironomids and Callibaetis nymphs are your best bets. Leeches and Scuds are on the list too. Damsel Nymphs in areas of good weed beds and reeds.
The Hot Springs area is fishing well as is the area between the EL Campground ramp and the private cabin the SW corner of the lake and near the obsidian flow to the red slide.
Fishing beetles near the shore is a favorite of mine. No Callibaetis hatches as of yet, but probably next week should see them get a foothold for the next several weeks, well into July for the 1st brood.
Cinder Hill and Hot Springs are good launches for bigger boats, East Lake CG is better for tubes, pontoons, drift boats, and kayaks.
Suggestion for courtesy, if you have no trailer and can launch your craft without a trailer, please leave the bigger parking spaces open for the trucks that do have bigger trailers as they can’t park “just anywhere” on a busy day.
