Upper and Lower Sunshine Reservoirs

May 22, 2019 9:00 am

Open water on both lakes now. The lower lake is about thawed entirely now. Water temps are in the 40’s. The trout are cruising the edges. Leeches, baby crayfish and streamer patterns are taking splake, Yellowstone cutthroat and tiger trout in lower lake. The upper lake has been fishing good using midge pupae patterns and bead head nymphs for the Yellowstone cutthroat in the upper lake. Streamers are best fished with a sink-tip, intermediate or full sink fly lines. Your choice. Same for the crayfish patterns.
