    I will be there, in my trusty Coleman canoe. What flies should I be tossing this time of year to have a good trip? I have never fished this lake before, but I have gotten some good info on where to fish from www.washingtonlakes.com.

    I have heard alot about chiro emergers, which I hate to still fish, but what about damsels, leeches, mayflies and scuds? What are the more effective patterns?

    Hello Rob,
    We will be there and Grimes this weekend; we are fishing over on that side, so I hope we get to meet. I didn't understand what you meant by the chirons, but I am told right now black is hot. Thought I might pass that along as well as the others I hear are hot right now from a guide friend who lives over there.

    His top four picks in size 12-14ish:
    1) Black Midges (as mentioned)
    2) BH Hare's Ears w/legs
    3) Damsels in Olive/tan color
    4) BH Lightning Bugs *(repsonsible for my best trip ever)*

    Weather is not really hot yet, and fish feeding and moving shallow; retrieve is "dead drift". Have a wonderful trip!!
    Hope this helps.
    Your friend,
    glen

    There is some good info on Dry Falls Lake patterns and structure that you might check out before going. It can be found in the topic "Favorite Lakes Poll" posted May 26th. Wish for fish.
