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.

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
