Look for the bite to really pick up as the air temps get more seasonal. Both fisheries are in great shape to begin the season. Along with an aggressive rainbow stocking program to provide consistent “catching”, these lakes have a reputation for kicking out large wild browns that spawn in Rush Creek and grow to trophy sizes. The spring period has concentrations of fish in deeper water near the inlets and drop-offs; but not on the flats. Streamers with full sinking lines are good calls for these alpine jewels. Hot patterns here include Crystal leeches/level leeches, Loebergs, Agent Orange/level AO’s, & light Spruce-A-Bu’s. Hang a Killa-baetis, or Assassin nymph as a trail fly while trolling from your tube. Water temps are much cooler in both locations due to higher elevations, so anticipate midge/mayfly activity to be later than their high valley cousins CL, & BPR.


If you would like to go fly fishing with Sierra Drifters give them a call at (760) 935 4250 and for more information visit their website www.sierradriters.com.
