Fishing Report

Fishing sure has been good on Lake Taneycomo…. we’ve been catching more fish than usual. Size has been very average, but the numbers (of fish, not fisherman) are definitely higher. Today we threw several different patterns, and most were real successful, but if I had to choose I would say the little possum scud and a small black zebra produced the best.

Water generation is still very minimal. If they run it at all, its been early in the morning.

Fly pattern choices
WD-40 Midges in gray or black
black zebra
rust zebra
green cracklebacks
Olive woolies
black dry emerger
elk hair caddis
Green or ginger south platte brassie
small scuds– possum brown or tan

Things have not radically changed lately. Fishing has been very good. Definitely not crowded. It really is a great time of the year to get in some very descent fishing.
Generally they have been running water in the mornings for a little bit, with it shutting off before 10am, for the last week or so.

Hot fly box picks

chamois worms
red San Juan worms
size 16 possum scuds
Adams Bug* (*a hot new pattern tied only here)
Crystal midge*
Flash zebra midge
WD-40 midges in olive or gray 20-22

At night try a gray or black zonker

Fishing Reports

The weather has gotten cold and the stanleys ice off paste is in the vest. Have to keep those guides from freezing up on a big fish. They have been running water in the mornings during the peak power times. But the fishing has been really good. Had two 25 inch rainbows caught sunday by two customers. Friday we had the water all to ourselves for about 3 hours and the fish were biting every thing you threw at them pretty much. Didn’t have to change to many flies. Except the ones we broke off. Flies of late have been.

Fly Box:
small scuds in size 16-22 tan, grey or sowbug
WD-40’s in size 18-22 grey, or cinnamon
woolies in size 14-10 white, or olive

Make sure you dress in layers for the conditions this time of year. And a good pair of windstopper gloves. If you are warm the fishing is alot more fun and enjoyable. Still some really nice fish still up here. Despite the cold weather.
