Fishing Report

The fishing has been great! An the weather can’t get better today. The water has been going off atleast every other day, so there are plenty of chances for good wading. The average fish right now is been very respectable in size…most fish have been right at 17″. Although there haven’t been very many browns this time of year. We have had the chance to catch quite a few fish on cracklebacks, soft hackles, and sculpins to switch up the pace a little bit. Otherwise the tried an true egg pattern, san juan worm, scuds, and wd-40s have definately getting great reports from a lot of people, and the recommended way to fish them is tying them with a scud/wd-40 dropper. If you get the chance stop by the shop before you next fishing trip an we can show you the up to date report….Good luck everyone, and have a happy new year!

Fishing Report

Went out fishing in the boat yesterday with Greg from Illinois. Water was running till about 11:30 am or so. Oh yeah it was chilly. Fishing was great though. Didn’t hardly see a soul. Thought maybe we would encounter some Duck hunters, since there were tons of ducks, but no one was out. Greg caught lots of fish with the biggest one being around 18″. I think every color of scuds and midges worked, they were not keying in on any one color.

With the water off, try using the sculpins, and cracklebacks. They have been doing really well, along with a black zebra or the old stand by scuds.

The generation of the water has been mostly running in the morning and evenings, shutting off during the day after 11am. So we are getting some no flow time. Great news for the waders!

Hope everyone is about ready for Christmas. We have lots of great items available in the store, and we are offering free shipping the month of December. Certificates for a guided fly fishing trips, are also available, and make a great gift for the person who is hard to buy for.
