East Lake

East Lake

Nestled in the Newberry Caldera at 6400 feet, East Lake has a rich history of fly fishing and for good reason. Two species of rainbow trout, brown trout and kokanee all call this lake home. Consistent hatches of callibaetis and chironomids make this lake a great place to cast a dry fly during the summer.

Guide Report

July 21, 2017

East lake is open and fishing very well. We are still seeing large brown trout being fooled by streamers stripped deep and slow. The Callibaetis and Damsel dry fly activity is definitely picking up. Make sure to bring a warm coat, sneaky summer storms can be very chilly.
