It was a quick trip to East Lake over the Labor Day Holiday. Fall was in the air with a chill but those callibaetis were still hatching! We tossed thorax callibaetis dries most of the day and were rewarded.
Took along Ken and my son-in-law Brad. It was a first time for Brad in our Cascade Lakes. He was not disappointed.
Ken was catching fish on callibaetis nymphs with a slow strip and casting dries. As the day got longer so did the shadows and the temperature dropped accordingly. Yet, near the shore line we continued to see swirls for callibaetis.
As for myself, it was great to be out enjoying time with family and good friends. A special “shout out” to one of the infamous Holloway Brothers, Clay, and my Cuba fishing buddy, Jim T. I broke down and used a slip strike indicator, with a combo of callibaetis nymph and red Choronomid. I was pleasantly surprised to land a few fish! So, the fishing was not red hot like June but with clear skies and fall in the air….it was all good!
