    Default flies for lakers ?

    Anyone been out fishing for Lake Trout on the west side of the Kenai Peninsula this fall? Would like to try some flies out in a couple different places....

    I'm one of the crazy guys who flyfishes for Lakers in early and late season. One of my grandslam late season flys is a black nosed dace with sinking fly line. Trolling with a nice quiet electric trolling motor in about 10 ft. of water...........nothing like it. Good luck.

    Default interesting...

    .. so are you trolling the fly behind the boat, with just the sinking line enough for a slow troll in the shallows??

    In a boat, you can use floating line and a weighted fly. I usually use a black leach pike fly. Just drift, no power. I might do better with sinking line, but I am too cheap to purchase some.

    Think it's getting about time to work some lake edges?

    Lake Louise still has 24 inches of clear blue ice on it. You might want to go south.
