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

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

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
