Duck and Mitten are the best August choices, but in general this is not a great place to fish at this time of year. The lakes are weedy, and most trout are in deep water due to heat. You'll find them around 20 feet down, or more. You need a seriously sinking line to reach them.

Don't ignore terrestrials on these lakes. You can do well if you ply the water with ants, hoppers, and beetles, especially near the edges and on windy days. Rather than blind casting these patterns, search for cruising trout and put your fly in their path. Those trout are opportunists who are searching for an easy meal, and your fly will look like the answer to their desire. The best terrestrial fishing will be in the morning and evening.
