Default Chain Lakes Reservoir

Hey,

I'm finally getting a chance to go fishing! Heading to Chain Lakes Reservoir, has anyone been there this year? Is this a good lake for fly fishing?

Thanks,

In the past, this time of year, a chironomid fished below an indicator worked well. Fished 10 inch to 3 feet off bottom.

Given the warm water you should make sure you try 20-25 foot depth if you canít find it and if you canít catch any shallower.

I would start at 10 feet deep and move deeper from there. No bites in 5-10 minutes. Move deeper. If you have a fish finder I would take it to see if you can find fish.

Try the North dam end.
