Fishing Report
October 30, 2014

Water Conditions: Lake levels have stopped dropping. 'Now at 6,7556 ft versus 6,781 ft elevation at the spillway. The islands just outside the marina have finally popped out - be careful and give them a wide berth. Water temperature is slowly dropping at 57�F (on the bottom) uniformly almost everywhere on the lake. Colder water has all but eliminated the algae. Weeds across the lake are almost gone. If you find some you will find fish most likely.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: McGee Bay is pretty dead. The North Arm is wide open for big fish but the fish are moving from day to day so you have find them. Six Bays mostly towards the south most bay. Fishing from shore is good if you do not want to join the fleet of boats and tubes. Sandy Point has been producing on and off. Leighton Springs down towards Sometimes Island is on and off. Alligator Point in a stripe north and south in 15 to 17 ft has slowed some but still excellent quality. Big Hilton has also been consistent in about 15ft about half way back into the bay on the north shore. The recently planted fish are "everywhere". Try moving, sometimes only 50 ft, to get off them and let the slower-moving, big fish get to your fly. It has been a later bite, usually starting about 9:30 am to 10:00 am.

Recommended Flies: Red/Black Optimdge or Copper Tiger all day. Go to Gray/Black Optimidge or Shaft Emerger also midday.' Time to get out the leech patterns both for stripping and hanging under the indicator Fewer hits but bigger fish for those who want to try a Dubbed-head Olive Optimidge in size 18 midday. Stripping has been on and off for the tubing set. Try a stillwater hare or trail a small PT or Hares Ear behind the usual Perch fry imitations - Hornberg's, Perfection Perch and Punk Perch or slow twitdh a leech pattern. Be sure and just twitch it up slowly the last 10-15 ft just like a Midge or Callibaetis ascending
