Lake: Twin Buttes Reservoir

Twin buttes

Post By: Gurnman      Posted: 6/7/2016 12:55:04 PM     Points: 603    
Im headed to twin buttes for our annual trip again this year on the 17th. I'm looking for any lake updates. I seen the one for June 4th which doesn't get me very excited unfortunately. How is the vegetation growth so far? Any updates are appreciated. It's been hit and miss the last couple years, colder days seem to be better fishing. We will be trolling for the most part.

We may hit hattie also if need be.

I have not fished these lakes before but i bet that time of year you just need to fish the weed lines?

hope ya get some input

Thank you for the input. Are you thinking stop the trolling and do more jigging and casting around the weeds?

Yes, find good lanes and cast beside the weeds and find holes and Jig them. You should do good doing this. They will come out no where

Fishing was slow the 17th and 18th. Only managed to land 3 and lost 1 other. We caught all 3 within an hour in the same spot on the same rapala. Couldn't get them to hit it again after that. Not many fish being caught by others on the fly or trolling. Major hatch or 2 Thursday and friday. I'm not a fly fisherman so I don't know exactly but the mosquitos were really bad in the evening. Friday morning the water was littered with what I would call a nat. Then at noon the grass along the shore was covered in baby dragonflys. Fish were active on top for sure. When I did wade into the water I came out with hundreds of bugs clinging to my waiters. The had a soft she'll and little legs. Not sure what those are but it was a first for me. Sorry it's not a scientific report. Also caught 1 koke at hattie in about 2 hours.
