Water Conditions:

The water continues to warm and the fishing is good with an abundance of stocked fish.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches:

Gull and Silver Lakes have been producing good fishing around 8-10 feet deep with Midges or Mayfly imitations under an indicator. The rig setup is similar to how you would fish Crowley. 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 full sinking line. Most fish are deep. There is not much of a hatch currently. Mainly midges in the morning, but the callibaetis mayfly should not be far away. Try trailing a prince nymph or medium size mayfly nymph about a 2 feet behind a streamer. If I had to fish one lake, I would fish streamers for 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: As the water warms fish your streamers deeper and slower!
