Luce and Hogan Lakes

September 9, 2020 12:00 pm

Hogan and Luce have been fishing fair to good due to water temps. Water temps are in the high 60’s. We – and the trout – could use a serious break from the heat!!

Access to Luce is from the Hogan reservoir parking lot. If the road is dry, access is no problem. If it has been raining, 4 wheel drive might required. Sight casting on Luce has been productive. During the heat of the day, go wet with small leech patterns or bead headed soft hackled hare’s ears, pheasant tails, Prince nymphs and damsel fly nymphs.

Please make sure you fasten the gate to Luce Reservoir to prevent cattle from escaping. Also, there have been sightings of grizzly bears on these lakes. Pack bear spray.

Flies: Scuds, Zebra Midges, damsel nymphs, bow-tie midges, wire worms, San Juan worms, smaller bead-head Prince, pheasant tails, hare’s ears or North Fork Specials have produced. Also, small leech patterns and mid-sized streamers (#4-#12) .

Caddis, ants, beetles, some hoppers and damsel flies are active on the water now. Fish dry versions of these!
