Olympic NP

Discussion in 'Fly Fishing Forum' started by Curly24, Aug 23, 2001.

  1. Going backpacking into the Olympics this weekend (7 Lakes Basin specifically). Anyone familiar with these lakes? Recomend any flies to try?
     
  2. I haven't specifically fished the Olympic Peninsula alpine lakes, but on the Alpine Lakes Wilderness lakes, small nymphs are usually the most productive flies. My favorites are size 12-16 hares ear and pheasant tails, fished on a sink-tip line in the shallows. If something is hatching, go for a realistic imitation to the bugs, just like a standard lake. Also, small BH wooly buggers in brown and balck always work well.
