May and June are two of the best months of the year to fish at Six Lakes Resort and Fishing Preserve. The fish are actively feeding and the weather is beautiful. It is a great time of year to be at Six Lakes and there is tons of recreation to enjoy with your family and friends. In this week’s blog we will discuss and share some of our favorite outdoor activities to enjoy during May and June and the best techniques to catch lots of fish this time of year.
Families love to play in the water at Six Lakes Resort and Fishing Preserve and late May and June is a great time of year to play in the lakes and swim in the swimming pool. The warm afternoons are great for swimming in the private swimming pool and children staying at Six Lakes love to spend time swimming and enjoying the large pool and hot tubs at Six Lakes. The lakes are also great in June for canoeing, kayaking, and paddleboarding. Families love to spend time playing on the lakes and paddling around watching the ducks and geese around the preserve.
May and June are also great months to ride bikes, hike, and explore the Six Lakes Preserve. There is lots of active wildlife during these two months and families will often see deer, hawks, osprey, rabbits, lizards, ducks, geese, owls, and even minks. It is a beautiful time of year to be at Six Lakes!
The fishing is fantastic in May and June at Six Lakes and fishermen love to get out and catch fish during these two months. Trout are actively feeding and fishing can be really good most days. One of the best techniques to catch trout during this time of year are to put on a bubble or strike indicator and hang a nymph or midge off of the strike indicator. The other great technique in these lakes is to put on a woolly bugger or leech pattern and put a few weights about 2 feet from the fly. Cast it out as far as you can and slowly reel it in while jigging the fly. This is a great technique for both fly and spinning rods and can be used by adults and children to catch fish. Dark olive or black woolly buggers are two of our favorite patterns this time of year.
We hope to see you soon at Six Lakes for some swimming, fishing, and water sports!
