This weeks fishing has been really great. The wade fishers have had to contend with some water generation. Probably due to the heavy rains we got the last week and a half. The generation has been somewhat different, like yesterday they started with 2 generators and then shut off in the afternoon. Today more than likely may be the same.
Size of the fish are increasing getting larger too. Over the last few days there has been 10-12 rainbows landed over the 20″ mark, and yesterday their was a 21″ & 24″ brown landed and released. Still no one has topped the 27 incher (rainbow) from the week before. Rainbows have started their spawn, but I am still seeing many larger fish down stream that haven’t moved up yet.
Today we have 2 boat trips. One in the morning and one this afternoon. We have had several beginner/teaching trips also lately, its a great way to get an introduction into fly fishing and catch some great fish doing it. Some of the most productive patterns have been the rabbit sculpin, Beaded midges, Adams bug, black woollies, and Wd-40’s. Of course scuds in gray or tan fished as a dropper behind a san juan or puff ball will almost always produce fish.
Weather has been a plus the last few days too, even when it was raining the fish were hitting almost anything. Seems to be a very busy and good week ahead.
