East and West Newton Lakes

June 15, 2019 9:00 am

For the first time in three decades, the West Lake is flowing into the East Lake! Both lakes are full and the trout seem to be responding better than ever to the hatches occurring – damsels, Callibaetis and midges. Ants, beetles and smaller hoppers are also showing themselves. It’s a smorgasbord at East and West Newton now!

Water temps have dropped back into the high 50’s as West Newton has begun flowing into East Newton.

Flies:  Buggers and leeches of various colors.  Chironimids (midges),  Ice cream cones, pheasant tails, hares ear, bow-tie midges (a great in the film emerger!), Griffiths gnat, FRM red or black, gray sparkle snowshoe duns, parachute Adams and zebra midges, damsel fly nymph patterns.
