Fishing Report

Finally getting time to wade the last 2 days. The water has been off from noon to 6 pm, both Saturday the 25th and Sunday the 26th. Prior to Saturday they had been running most of the time during daylight hours, with it being off only a couple of hours at night. Reports have been that also this week, Tues & Weds. they will be working on the baffles at powersite dam (Forsyth), and plan to decrease generation on those days, weather permitting. Hopefully this means we will be getting in more wading time.

Now that the water has been off a little, we are starting to see more browns up towards the dam. It sure has been a very unusual year.

We have either been wading or had the boat out on trips everyday and the hot patterns have still been Scuds, sizes 18 & 16 in Brown or gray, Olive woolies in size 10, pearl cracklebacks, Beaded midges, sculpins, and prisim emergers.

Fishing Report

Top 2 questions…… What is the water doing? Are the big browns up by the dam yet?

First, this water situation is frustrating to say the least for wade fishers. The last few days it has been off some during the night and it didn’t come on today till 9 am. Table Rock Lake is still below power pool. On average during the day the water has only been running 4-5 feet high from a zero generator level, they normally run 8-9 feet high with 4 generators.

Yes to the browns! Check out the 3 photos below. The brown was caught Sunday afternoon. It weighted 19.2 lbs. 33″ long and 21″ girth. The rainbow was landed on the 7th during a boat trip and it weighted 8.3 lbs and was 26″ long. The browns are moving up and we have seen quite a few around 10 lbs the last 2 days.




Scuds have still been the top producer. If you have been to the water lately there are tons of them everywhere…. warmer water and no foot traffic has definitely increased their population.

Olive wooly buggers have been good too. Cracklebacks, Stimulators, midges, especially Adams bug.
