Mayflies?

4 posts in this topic

The East Coast Boys are heading up to Elephant Lake this Friday to "Break In" Tamarack (New Cabin) and wanted to know the mayfly situation. Last year we were up in mid June and the mayfly hatch put a damper on the fishing.

Any reports?

Thanks,

Mastercaster

The mayflies are here. It depends who you talk to if they are affecting the bite...

I found that minnows were working better than leeches this weekend. Kab was a tough bite but did well on Nam.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
