Late Summer Whitefish at Sylvan Lake
Larry Prowse and I headed to Sylvan Lake today to fly fish for lake whitefish. It was a picture perfect late summer day. The water temperature was 58F and there was no algae to speak of. We started off in 8 to 9 feet of water fly fishing with chironoimids. We caught a few whites but the fishing was not fast and furious. We finally moved into 5 feet or less and then we could see the whitefish cruising and then our day got interesting. We changed to flashbacks and we caught several by casting in front of the cruisers, twitching the fly and then game on. We lost lots but we caught lots too! Awesome day!
