Without a doubt the best flies there are olive or black wooly buggers and olive damsel fly nymphs.

lol! Even my wife laughed. You were there in June right?

I was up there in June and fishing 2 rods was pretty much impossible. After you casted out your first rod, you'd get a bite before you could finish baiting up your second rod and cast it out. If you ever got both poles baited up and in the water at the same time it was time to move.

I never made it up there last year. Wife & I like to go in Sept. the week after all the kids go back to school. By then the mosqitoes are almost gone, the weather is still great & we can usually get a camp spot right on the lake.

i know a woolly bugger is good at any lake or pond regardless. but i didn't know about the damselfly. im pretty sure a mosquito dry would work too since the hacthes there are crazy. thanks for the fly recomendations though :)
