For nymph fishing, long leaders and team of three flies - "buzzer" pupae in various colours. It is important to move the flies VERY slowly if at all! With dry fly, best to use two flies on a 12 foot leader spaced about five feet apart. !2 on the point and 14 on the dropper. For the pike a wire trace is compulsory, and as there are some very large fish in the lake, a minimum tippet strength of 25lbs is required. Large (2/0 and 3/0) bait immitations are best
If you are out in the day then keep with the sinker and fish in the deep water around the dam. Some fish were caught on floaters (and I managed to get a few fish to look at my dries), but, the chances are that sinkers will produce most fish.
