East and West Newton Lakes

September 23, 2021 9:00 am

East Newton is catch and release, flies or lures only, NO BAIT!

Fishing action has been picking up now that water temps have dropped due to cold weather and lots of rain. The trout are crushing hopper patterns fished along the shoreline now. Go offshore and fish deep with midge pupae, scuds or streamers if you want all day action.  Anglers will enjoy the refreshing change of trout attitude.

Flies to use: Midges, Calibaetis mayflies, caddis and damsel flies are hatching. Trout have been responding to foam and standard hopper patterns, parachute Adams,  damsel fly nymphs, blue damsel dries, Hare’s ears, Pheasant tail nymphs, bow-tie midges and dark bodied smoke jumpers.

Balanced leech patterns, woolly buggers, seal buggers, midge pupae, bead head midges or small bead nymphs work great below the surface.
