Fishing Report: In its earlier days, fishing at Hyas was superb. Large Rainbows up to 16 lbs. were caught. Today, these huge fish are gone, however Hyas still supports a good Rainbow fishery with trout going up to 3-1/2 lbs and the occassional one up to 5 lbs. Hyas is considered a good lake for fly fishing with good populations of aquatic insects.
