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)

      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
