Molas Lake, CO
McFlyLures posted a topic in Fly Fishing Gear & TechniquesWell this was an amazing trip! I did not put all the fish I caught in the video, because the video would have been way too long. I caught probably 30+ fish, and almost all of them on my 4wt Redington Butterstick. A few fish on the dry fly, and a few on nymphs. Some hard fighters as well, especially on my 4wt. I had quite a few of them run line hard, and most of them were very acrobatic and jumped quite a few times. Just one of the most productive times Ive had in a long time. Molas lake is a high mountain lake run by the town of Silverton Colorado and is located in between Silverton and Durango. From what I gathered its a Fishery that Silverton uses to hold hatched fish until they grow bigger, then use the lake to stock many of the creeks, streams and rivers in the surrounding area. So its good fishing, and there are a few really good sized fish in there. Make sure and stop in the Molas Lake Campground Park Office, to get the current regulations and fish report. Also there is a small fee for camping, and I paid it to fish as well.
best flies for small lake in late summer
rockworm posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchThanks to the latest member of our family, Jessie- a 4 month old golden retriever, my wife is thinking about renting a cabin on a lake here in Quebec this summer. Most of my fly fishing has been on rivers and streams so I am hoping some of you FTF members can help me out. What patterns should I be tying? Up until now I have survived with, mostly, floating lines. Will I need to buy a sinking line? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Prestine mountain lake and lots of trout
McFlyLures posted a topic in Fly Fishing Gear & TechniquesHaviland Lake is a beautiful small lake up north of Durango Colorado. You can kayak, swim, and camp at the lake. While you can catch fish off the shore, having a boat really improves your catch rates. I was able to stop into 4 Corners Riversports the morning of my trip and rent a kayak from them. An awesome shop with lots of really nice kayaks for sale, and also very nice kayak rentals. They also sell and rent other items used in watersports as well, like paddle boards, rafts, water games, and more. Keep in mind that these fish are stocked, and meant to keep. You can catch and release, but my wife wanted to cook up some trout and have a meal with my parents. So I kept 4 fish, and Carter took home 3. They were really good, and none was wasted! We ate every ounce of fish!
Electra Lake Stacked Trout
McFlyLures posted a topic in Fly Fishing Gear & TechniquesElectra Lake is an awesome lake with some monster trout! It was Very easy to catch them, at least the day I went. They were stacked up in the river and inlets of the lake, and I was able to hook 4 fish in a 20-30 minute period. Just absolutely amazing fishing! Electra lake doesn't allow for wading into the lake, or for boats except for those run by the people who live on the lake. However, there is some great fishing from shore, and you won't be disappointed in the quality of these fish. Every fish I hooked was a good sized and colorful fish. If you haven't been there before, its well worth the $15 to fish the lake. Check it out!
