Paulina Lake is good. I had great Beetle days last week and very good fishing on Balanced Leeches and Leeches fished on intermediate and Type 5 full sinking lines. The fish seemed to show a real preference to leeched that hat a fluorescent bead (both orange and hot pink worked well).
Scuds are showing up in a lot of throat pump samples.
Very few fish on Chironomids this week. But I don’t think that is over as I am seeing some good size “buzzers” emerging and leaving large empty shucks on the surface and have found good numbers of very small olive pupa in throat pump samples.
