Tackle: Most people use a 7-9' rod, AFTM 5-7, with a floating line, In the early season an interemediate or slow sinking with a buoyant fly can also be used. A

Flies: They all work ! Buzzers as it warms up, Lures when it is cold and nymphs all the time. We are not fishing for stockies, we only stock 4 or 5 times a year
and we have a good head of resident fish in the lake and they can be clever ! As the water warms action will move to the surface and a variety of small dry flies will be useful.
