Pyramid opens October 1st. There are already plenty of Tui Chubs schooling up around some of the deeper drop off beaches. The water is in the high 60’s on the surface and has a shot at staying in that range for the next 10 days at least. Hopefully we can get some cooler weather before the end of the month to help. Once the lake opens fish areas that offer access to deeper water for shore fisherman. Block House, Sand Hole and all along the South West Shoreline has this type of access. Some anglers will look to spend some time in their tubes or pontoon boats as well. If you are one of those anglers use some common sense and don’t fish alone and watch the weather. Banded Balanced Leeches and Maholo Nymphs fished in deep water under an indicator is going to be a good way to go. Try water in the 10-25 feet range. Deep Water Wooly Buggers fished on a fast sinking line is also going to catch some fish in the same depth range. A lot of the more shallow beaches will most likely have grass issues for shooting head anglers. Jigging techniques will help to keep your flies or lures out of the grass.
