Expect good fishing, especially in the early part of the month, but as the crowds and fishing pressure increases, the fish will become more wary. When this happens, lengthen your leader to 15 feet, 6X, and concentrate your fishing during low-light times of day (dawn, dusk, cloudy days).

Callibaetis mayflies will start hatching in early June. A Callibaetis Cripple can be dynamite during the hatch, and a flashback Pheasant Tail produces well when slowly retrieved just subsurface.

As June moves along you'll have good fishing with damselfly patterns such as Dougs Damsel and Marabou Damsel. Midges will be important at dusk. Try a midge pupa pattern with the body fashioned from a wrapped stem of a peacock herl (strip all the fibers off, then wrap the stem on the shank.

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