Big Lava Lake - July 6th, 2012
supplied by: The Flyfishers Place
RECORDED:    84 °   FISHING: Good
Fishing is good at Lava near the resort and over by the springs across the lake. Callibaetis hatches are good. Damsel nymphs, leeches and chironomids are all good. During non hatch periods try an ornage tailed cascade bugger or a minnow bugger on a type 3 line.

RECORDED:    75 °   FISHING: Great
Besides excellent leech and damsel fly action expect fair to good callibaetis hatches and some good damsel nymph times in the late morning.

Keep an eye out for midges and be prepared to fish chironomids under an indicator.

RECORDED:    80 °   FISHING: Great
Lots of good stuff here, but a leech on a sinking line might be your best bet.

Some chironomid and callibaetis action too.

Chironomids are very good, but leeches and damsel nymphs are good too. The fish seem to be near the resort end and over along the springs on the west side of the lake.

            Lava Lake opened last Saturday and it’s usually really good fishing when it first opens up. Thu & I grabbed the boat and ran up on Monday morning to give it a try.


            It was a beautiful day with lots of sun, warm temps and a nice breeze for wind drifting across the lake. We set up with type 2 sinking lines, 4X leaders and set a water anchor off the side of the boat to control our drift speed. Thu started with a Prince Nymph and I tied on a good old, time tested, Olive Crane Bugger.


            Well, the Prince Nymph and you know who, got the first three fish in a row and I started to re-think my fly choice. On my next cast, my faith was restored as I hooked and landed a nice 12-inch trout. We hooked a few more with the same flies and decided start changing patterns see what else might work better. I stripped a number of different Bugger/leech patterns and Thu switched between nymph patterns. It turned out we caught fish on most everything we tried. The peacock body Carey Special and the Olive Crane Bugger were the most productive streamers and the Prince, Pheasant Tail and Bloody Mary where the best nymphs we tried. Imagine that, all those flies have peacock or peacock color in them.


            We pretty much covered the whole lake and caught fish everywhere, and sometimes in bunches! In two spots I caught 5 fish on 5 casts in a row. Out of the close to 30 fish we landed, there were only a few that went over 16 inches and the average was 11 to 14 inches. There were a few fish caught in deeper water, but most were taking at about 6 to 8 feet deep. It was a lot of fun because these fish weren’t huge, but they sure hit and acted like they were. These things will change as the water warms up, so get out there and have some fun while it’s good.

RECORDED:    77 °   FISHING: Poor
Went up to look yesterday (5/7/12) and the gate was still closed 3 miles from the lake at the Deschutes Bridge Jct. No snow there at all so I imagine the gate should be unlocked soon. Keep the faith.

Big Lava Lake - July 17th, 2010
supplied by: Fly and Field Outfitters
FISHING: Good
Lava has seen some calibaetis hatches and terrstrials like ants and beetles have taken fish.  This is a fun fishery, especially when the big lakes are too windy.  This is also a great place for float tubes and pontoon boats as the size is managable.  If Big Lava is too much, head over to the Little lake, it fishes about the same.  Fishing clear lines and damsel patterns or leeches/buggers is a fun way to take fish.  Work the shorelline drop off's and vary your retrieve rate until you find success.
