Get out early to get a spot, but best action is about 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Find deep water. Anglers have reported activity in 12 to 25 feet of water. Use a sinking line like Depth Charge and find a steep drop off or fish from a pontoon or boat. Black/grey/red/purple combos will work best. Strip flies at depths of 12 or more feet. Fish to 8 pounds common, many in the teens and a couple 20+ reported. Shoreline angling picking up on white and green beetles and indicator rigs with Mahalos too. Quality has been better than quanity.
Fishing is good, but numbers are down. The fish are slowly coming to shallower water, but concentrate your efforts on the deep drop offs with sinking line until more are seen in the shallows. Stripping is always better early in the season, but some success on indicator rigs in 25 feet with leeches and large midges. Most guys are reporting a fish every hour but they are 6- to 10 pounders.
