Fishing Report

Fishing has been pretty good lately. Water started running really early today, but most every other day water had been off in the mornings and turning on early afternoon or so and running till dark.
We have been doing really well on smaller scuds, prismatic emergers, south platte brassies, and WD-40’s. These patterns have been extremely successful all week. Had a great group of people from Field and Stream and Outdoor Life out today. All ten of them caught fish. Mary Jane was the hero today as she could do no wrong. She landed the most. I think the women out fished the men I hate to say. A couple of women in the group had on some nice fish. But a little mistake or a too hot to handle fish took our flies and left us with some tales to tell back home. Tales of the big one that got away. We really had a great time on the water.

Fishing Report

Not much to update… There are still plenty of nice trout being landed, but over all, conditions and patterns have not changed much at all. There still is the regular water generation every day, mostly all day.

Fishing Report

Well, honestly not much has changed lately. Still very warm and running water on no real consistant schedule. Generally on around noon or so and running till dark, with the exception of today and yesterday, when there was one running rather early and a second one turning on around 9 am.

Dry flies have been very successful lately. I have been using an Adams, a mosquito, and a little new pattern we’ve been experimenting with. Scud patterns, Adam’s bug, WD-40’s and small woolies have also been a great fly pick. Even when the water is running we are catching some larger fish on sculpins. Speaking of nice fish, there has been quite a lot of 19″-20″ rainbows and browns, being caught, and the girths on these fish are really amazing. It won’t be long before the large rainbows start moving up to begin their spawn, and then the time of year we all dream of, will begin…. the annual big brown run!
