Fishing Report

We have had several trips down this past week. Fishing is a little slower than normal, but we are seeing more and more larger browns. Hooking into several larger fish, but using lighter tippets, (which are a must), makes for more of a challenge. Fish sizes have been 6 lbs to 11 lbs.

It’s been still hard to pin point the water generation. Running at some time during the day.

Fly picks:

bigger dry flies
small scud patterns sz 20/22 in tan or gray
prismatic emerger
WD-40 midges in gray 20/22
Chamois worms
Creme south platte brassies

Fishing Report

This past Labor Day weekend was very busy. We had several clients out fishing. We are starting to see some really nice larger fish.
Monday, a 12+ lb. rainbow was landed. It was a huge fish! He caught it on a small gray scud, and released it after a couple photos!
Tuesday we had a couple of guys out and one of them landed a 7 1/2 lb rainbow! He took it on a red neck micro jig.

The two clients we had out today did really well, they were worn out, but had a good time! The red neck micro did really well for them also.

It won’t be too much longer before we start seeing large browns.

They still have been running water in the afternoons, Yesterday they only ran 1 generator and as of this writing they have 1 on, turning it on at 3 pm.

Fly Box picks:
Red neck micro jig, or the bedspread micro jig
Scuds: in gray or tan (smaller sizes)
Small white egg patterns
Gray sculpins
Red or green south platte brassies
WD-40’s in gray or cinnamon

Fishing Report

Today we hooked two big fish on grey WD-40’s #20. Starting to see more and more big fish but still 2-3 weeks from the spawn. Chamois worms worked today, but strikes slow down on it closer to noon. I’ve been using more streamers the past couple days and a #10 black wooly bugger was working early. Some other choices that work would still be: #14 renegades, #16-#20 scuds in tan, #16 San Juan Worm (red), and #12 apricot egg patterns. The generation has been good for fishing lately turning 1 generator on at 1 o’clock. Good luck everybody.
