Fishing this past week at Makokibatan Lodge was slow as the many days of strong winds and wet weather kept guests close to shore. Fish were slow to bite with the majority of them coming on the south shore of the lake between Rogers Reef and the summer, shore lunch island. Most fish were caught in 18 ft of water on bright colored Hot and Tots.
We also experienced a large mayfly hatch which seemed to turn off many of the fish from striking artificial baits. Weather for the next week looks to be nice with temperatures between 60 and 84 with light winds, and no rain in the forecast.
