Chironomid fishing the past week has been excellent for the larger Pennask strain of rainbows fishing the deepest part of the lake. Chironomid hatches have been all though the deep water of the lake, size 12’s and the odd larger chironomid from dark green to olive to watery olive with most having red butts has been coming off. Over the weekend fishing was a bit tougher possibly the weather system that was arriving with rain overnight last night. Fish weren’t on a feeding frenzy but were still feeding right off the bottom on various patterns of green. Fishers trolling black with silver kwickfish did well and for trolling flies the Blue Maroon’s and Pumkinhead’s. Worms under a float also produced fish. With nice stable weather this week fishing should get good again. Late yesterday afternoon the hatch got heavier.
