After a good day at East Lake we headed out to Big Lava the following day. One thing about Big Lava, if the fishing is slow, the view surrounding the lake is breath taking.
Our fishing was fair at best at Big Lava. However, the few we did catch were of nice size and girth. From the picture above, you can see how anxious the fish of Big Lava wish to return to water. Practicing catch and release with this particular fish was not a problem for Jeff.
Slow drifting and using the callibaetis nymph proved to get a few to hand. The fishing for us was a bit slow verses East Lake but we did have a late start for the day. We were able to cast dries and the thorax callibaetis proved to be best. Day 3 of our Cascade Lakes adventure begins tomorrow and with gray overcast skies forecasted, looks like a possible return to East Lake?
