Fishing Report

Had a trip out this morning and they were generating 3 and 4 generators, with the water levels going up and down within a foot or so. The dam did shut off today at 3 pm. First time in a while. Fishing today was good in the morning, and got even better when the water shut off.
Starting off this am we had our best success on a San Juan Worm and scuds. We actually caught more browns than rainbows. After the water shut off: black soft hackles, WD-40’s, and zebra midges were the ticket!

Fishing Report

All 4 generators are still running all the time, due mostly in part to high water levels. Last week our pools were finally getting down to where they need to be when we got more heavy rains. Earlier this week there was a couple of days that the fishing had really slowed up. But now it has really picked up again, and I’ve seen some very nice larger fish being landed.

Something even more note worthy…….. I am definitely seeing quite a few shad coming through the dam right now, something we haven’t seen in a while. Fishing when the shad kill is going on is a whole new and better ballgame. There is nothing quite like it.

Fly picks
With water running typical nymphs rigs work the best.

Scuds: possum brown or gray- smaller sizes are a must
Hares ear nymphs
San Juan worms in brown
Adam’s bug
micro jigs
