Lake down a few more inches this last week. 'Now at 6,762 ft versus 6,781 ft elevation at the spillway. Water temperature is way up there at 68� F (on the bottom) uniformly almost everywhere that is at a fishable depth. Algae is pretty bad becoming a problem in many places. Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Big and Little Hilton continue to have some fish and up against the weed line in McGee has some fish as well, but no real concentration. The super high water temps have the bulk of the fish in the lake at depths of 35 to 40 ft. Hatches have been weak but as soon as that comes around. as it will, and especially with the recent hard rains in the PM cooling off the shallows, the big fish will start moving in to feed for several hours every day. Recommended Flies: Bright red larvae patterns and Albino Barons the best before 9am. Go to red/black later and maybe gray/black midday but it is getting to be more and more green down there so brighter will usually get seen better. Purple Zebra is usually a good call this time of year. Some green flash in whatever fly you pick is a good idea in the deep, dark world below the algae. Have seen some callibaetis so a flashback Pheasant Tail should also be on the list to try

Trolling has been good near McGee and the 395 side of the lake toward Sandy Point. Fish are 15 feet deep. Fly fishing for trout is picking up in McGee also. Fish are spread from 12 to 20 feet deep. Perch are on their spawning beds. Fish mini-jigs around the edges of weed beds. Bait fishermen use garlic flavored Power Bait. Chartreuse is the hot color.
