Callibaetis hatches will bring fish to the surface during the day. Be prepared with size 14-16 flashback Pheasant Tail nymphs and Sparkle Duns or Quigley Cripples .

Midge patterns and damselfly nymph patterns are also good bets this month.

Evening hatches of traveling sedges may occur. Try skating a size 8-10 Goddard Caddis across the surface.

Black size 16-18 caddis might be active in the evenings.

Expect Hosmer to be busy, especially in the channel between the two halves of the lake.

Fishing typically slows down here in late July because of summer heat. When it slows, the best fishing will be in early morning and late evening.

For more information on July fishing, see the Lakes section of the General Oregon Report
