Put this on your calendar!!!
This month the fish along will be a Laurance Lake. This is a beautiful lake that sits on the north side of Mount Hood and provides you with a view of the mountain that you don’t always see. This lake is known for fly fishing and is a new place for our club to visit.
We will meet on Saturday morning in the main parking area. There is a $5 fee per car for using the park so you may wish to look at carpooling with other members.
The lake is large (127 acres) and contains rainbow, cutthroat, and bull trout. There is bank access but it is best fished from a floating devise such as a float tube. If you do not have a floating devise the club now has a small fleet of float tubes that you can use, so don’t use that as an excuse to not get out and fish!
The best fishing is at the top of the lake close to the inlets. It is probably best to use an intermediate lake line. As for flies a leach pattern works best….callibaetis nymph, seal bugger, woolly bugger, and chironomids fished sub surface with an indicator. There is the possibility of a callibaetis hatch as well.
We will talk about this at the next meeting so come for the details. If you just can’t wait please call Paul Brewer at 503-635-3156 for more information.
