I was up there on Sunday and the gate was open. I fished from 8 - 1 with 8 EB brought to hand between 8-13". The wind was blowing and it kept the surface roiled, so I stayed down deep (relatively speaking). I had most of my luck on a #10 black Marbou Leech fished on a clear intermediate line. The longer I let the fly sink, the higher the results. Keep it moving slow. There were some midges hatching throughout the day and I didn't see any damsels yet, but then again the ice has only been off for about 2 weeks.

There were six other boats on the water and a few were getting some action, although I never did stop to ask the technique being used. It did appear that the guys catching fish were all using some sort of sinking line.

Good Luck! Keep me posted on how you do.

hey thx alot for the info. Ill tell you how i do, going up there maybe friday, we'll see.

I went up there in oct of last year and got a couple on Brown caddis. I am thinking about heading up within the next week or so and see what I can do. (I was just wondering earlier today if it was iced off, then I read this...wierd)Do you guys fish dog lake ever? never tried it but heard the rockslide bank can be good-plus it is closer to Yakima, where I am from. Theres my 2 cents. - Trevor :BIGSMILE
