The mountain has been fishing well on the lakes that have been less traveled. there has been heavy pressure at Donkey lake and fishcreek and Beaver dam, the fishing has been slow to decent at those waters with most of the fish concentrating on the callibaetis hatches. nymph patterns fish slow and deep have been the most successful. the grayling fishing has remained good with some of the nicest grayling being in the 16 inch range. there has been some nice tigers caught as well.
Thousand Lakes Mtn.
The best fishing remains at morrell pond with lots of cutthroat and rainbows cruising the weed line and picking off any thing that looks like a bug. we did well throwing prince nymphs and pheasant tail nymphs. the fish are there on both meeks and floating island, we have done best with mohair leech patterns.
there have been a few nice muskie seen along the weed lines recently and they have been aggressive, big sz 4 zonkers and double bunnys have been getting lots of attention.
U.M. and Seven Mile creek. the fishing on U.M has slowed. the fish have been holding very tight to cover and have been more particular as to what they will eat.
we have done well with a hopper with a red copper john dropped below. Seven Mile creek has been fishing well with hopper droper patterns. the secret here is to move away from the easy access points and put some leg work in. the fish are there.
The Fremont River.
The River is fishing really well, nymph patterns have been the most productive. there is a caddis hatch, and the fish are actively feeding on them.
the Lower Fremont has been mostly running off color with the recent rains. when it clears at all the fishing can be really good.
we have been throwing streamers and have been picking up some great browns.
