Will the recent lakefly hatch effect fishing?

4 posts in this topic

Hoping to come to the big pond this weekend. I know there was a recent hatch, will this hurt the fishing at all? Thanks in advance.

We limited out Saturday night (4 people) even though the midge hatch was in full force.

yes, it keeps getting better. Best bite is just around the corner. Have had some of my best days when the lake surface is covered in insects.

I was on the south end last weekend, and flies not bad. Just wondering if they have moved to that side yet.(wahkon bay)

      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.
