Fish are running deep these days, with 20′ depths becoming the new shallow water fishing. It won’t be long before these fish start to make their migration into the shallows as they hunt the channels and the weed beds in search of higher protein sources like the damselfly nymphs and callibaetis mayflies. Midges are still doing the trick in deep water, and the bite can be epic on the right day. It has been some time since June has kicked out fish of this caliber on a daily basis. Some real trophy fish are showing up. Fishing is great all over the lake currently with some real stand out areas producing. Browns, rainbow and cutthroat trout are all in the  mix now. These deep water fish are tight to the mud bottom and feeding on larvae and emerging pupa. Set the hook and hold on for some serious reel burning action this summer.
