I had a client out yesterday, fishing high water. It was the first time he had done that kinda fishing with a fly rod. Started with some instruction on deep water fishing and he picked it up really quickly. Started catching fish almost right away. Fishing the main current. Saw alot of fish just not any big fish. Tried several flies but the scuds were doing the best.
Today the water has been off. The hot flies today consisted of: soft hackles in olive, cracklebacks in green or yellow, or scuds in possum brown or sowbug colors. 6x fluorocarbon has been the tippet of choice. But if the bite really slows down for you, don’t be afraid to go to 7x. Fish have been hitting in just about every section of the river lately with a wide variety of flies getting the fish. They have not been real picky lately. Also for the guys that like the zebra’s fish the black and silver or the rusty color, or even the mean green midge. There has not been alot of people on the water the last couple of days so you should be able to find a spot to fish without being over run. Good luck and hope to see you on the water.
