June Lake Loop Fish Report- Update by Nate Wray on 06/01/09

June Lake Loop - June Lake, CA (Mono County)

by The Trout Fitter Staff
(800) 637-6912

Water Conditions:

The water is warming up a bit and the fishing is good with an abundance of stocked fish.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:

Streamer fishing has been steady with both stocked fish and holdovers. If you are stripping, it is a good idea to use a type 4 or 5 sinking line. Most fish are deep. There is not much of a hatch currently. Mainly midges in the morning, but the callibeatis should not be far along. Try trailing a hares ear or medium size mayfly nymph about a foot behind a streamer. If I had to fish one lake, I would fish streamers to the native browns in Grant. The small bays on the south side of the lake can produce this time of year.

Recommended Flies:

#10 - #12 Black or Olive Wolleybugger , #10 Doc's Twin Lake Special , #10 Flashabugger , #14 Hares Ear , #16-#20 Zebra Midges, #16 Callibeatis Emerger, #16 Callibeatis Nymph

Guides Hint: With the consistent midday clouds, try fishing darker streamers. Trout see darker colors better in low light conditions.
