Fishing techniques

Streamer Fishing

There are 2 main techniques for streamer fishing on the lake. One is more focused on when trout are feeding on schools of baitfish, while the other method is focused on trout cruising the shallows searching for a variety of food sources. When fishing bait-ball scenarios we use sinking lines with 2-4 inch fly patterns, fishing 1 single fly at a time. When fishing shallow water scenarios we generally fish 2 foam patterns on a sinking line, these foam flies move erratically when stripped and fool even the largest of fish! 

Indicator Fishing

Very effective way to catch some of the Largest fish in the Lake! Due to the fact that your flies are in the strike zone for longer periods of time, through the day. We use 10ft 6in 6wt switch rods to indicator fish on the lake. Targeting depths of 4-12ft primarily and every once in a while using sliding indicator rigs to fish depths of up to 20ft. The boat gives us access to many areas that a shore angler can not reach with an indicator set-up. Giving you the advantage to target un-fished water. We use a wide array of nymphs, midges, and balanced flies to mimic leeches and minnows.

We provide all necessary fishing equipment. Rods, Reels, Flies etc. If you would like to bring your own rods you are more than welcome to.
