June Lake Loop Fish Report- Update by Nate Wray on 6-6-09

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-#18 Callibeatis Trigger Nymph, #16-#18 Janssen Emerging Callibeatis

Guides Hint: With the consistent midday clouds, try fishing darker streamers. Trout see darker colors better in low light conditions. (Kent's take on this is they can't see better but they feel the vibrations with their lateral line and because they can't see it is if is it is black, they hit it.) Either way black is good on darker days for sure!
