Many Pacific Northwest Lakes offer serenity and very large trout. The desert lakes of Central Oregon and Washington can be incredibly prolific in foods that grow trout quickly to very large sizes. Some privately managed fish-for-fee lakes offer trout that range to over twenty pounds that can be caught from float tubes. Fishing with 2X tippets is not that uncommon. Needless to say these trout aren't always push-overs. You better have the right flies. Our lake fly selection is always evolving. The patterns below are our latest additions. Each was added because of specific insight.

Water Boatman, Burke's
Water boatmen are reported to occur in fresh water through out most of the world. In certain local ponds lakes and reservoirs they occur in dense populations. In the edge water of many local rivers with habitats as diverse as the spring fed Deschutes to the glacial fed Sandy River, water boatmen populations can be very prolific. When other aquatic insects are still dormant from the cold of winter, water boatmen can be very

active. Water boatmen have the hind two pairs of legs fitted with hairs and the outer joints of the hind legs are oar-shaped which allows them to paddle and swim. Adults range in length from 3/16 to 3/8 inch long and are usually dull colored brown or olive. Water boatmen often swim in open water where they are easy prey for trout. They are comfortable in cold water and often a good choice for an early season trout fly in lakes. Water Boatmen are strong swimmers. Retrieve your fly with quick six inch strips. Water boatmen are often prolific in lake edge-water when the lake levels are high in early spring. The best line for fishing these areas is the Teeny 5' Phantom Tip.

Bead Head Snow Cone Chironomid Pupa
This is the standard fly for fishing under a strike indicator. The real pupas often suspend in a vertical position. Thingamabobber Strike Indicators are very good for this type of fishing. Make a right-angle junction at your indicator. Be sure that the tippet below the indicator has been straightened. Cast it out and let it sit. Adjust the the depth of the fly until you find fish. Usually if there are fish around, it won't take long.

No Named Damsel

Picky Fish Damsel

As damsel fly nymphs mature, they turn darker and this is an average color in many lakes. The long, sparse marabou tail gives this fly a swimming action. Fish this fly very slowly. When Damsels hatch during mid-summer, use a floating & long leader in very shallow water. It is almost like fishing for bone fish.

Sierra Damsel, Olive
This is a deadly fly, tied on a deadly TMC Super-Point Hook. This a very good mid-season fly. Use a very slow sinking line, such as the Teeny Phantom Tip 5' and fish the shallow edges for cruising trout.

Goat Leech, Black/Red
Black & red is a deadly combination in leech patterns. Long sloe strips on the retrieve are often best. Crawl it along the bottom of the lake.
