Daily Report

December 01 2023

On Thursday we had mostly sunny conditions and the temperature reached into the mid 40's. The majority of public access parking lots have been cleared after the recent heavy lake effect snow we got earlier in the week. With the recent snow and warmer temperatures with rain in the forecast, it's no surprise the water level has been high. The drift boats are taking advantage of the higher flows and covering lots of water, while the bank anglers are looking for some softer water along the edges and inside seams.  For those anglers who are fly fishing, dead drifting or indicator fishing with egg patterns as well as swinging streamers with sinking leaders have all produced results. For those anglers who are float fishing or bottom bouncing with spinning gear, pink, blue and chart egg sacs as well as beads have all produced results.  

Egg patterns: Steelie omelette in size 10, Estaz eggs in chart, blue, purple, size 10. Glo-bugs in chart, pink, orange, size 10. Sucker spawn in chart, pink, blue, size 6.

Nymphs: Prince nymphs in size 10, Hare's ear in size 10, Pheasant tails in size 10, Flashback nymphs in size 10, Steelhead hammer in size 12, Beadhead stones in size 10. 

Streamers: Black or purple egg sucking leeches in size 6. Woolly buggers in black, olive, brow, white, size 6. Fish skull zonkers in black, white, olive size 6.
