I have been super busy lately… guiding everyday.. so I haven’t kept the fishing reports updated like I wish I could. Happy to say though, over all fishing has been very good. Hooking into some really nice larger fish, maybe not always landing all of them, but catching a fair share thats for sure.
Water generation, has been somewhat sporatic. We have experienced quite a bit of no generation though, making it great for all the wade fishers. The word was that it was suppose to stay off most of this week due to fixes need on the Dam at the other end of Taneycomo, and for them to plant the rock piles below this dam for habitat. But they blew one horn around 7am this morning, and another one at 8am. (2 total running now). So instead of wade fishing this morning which was the original plan with the 3 guys from Oklahoma , we opted for the boat, which is really much better when 2 gen.’s are running.
When in the boat drifting we have been using San Juan worms, Scuds,& egg patterns, also one morning we were throwing nothing but a larger dry fly. Beaded midges have been fairing well too. When wading we have been bouncing a heavy sculpin off the rocks, sight fishing for the larger ones. Zebra midges did well too, along with prismatics, and small scuds. Now for everyone wondering what Adam has been using on his guide trips (and I have had several people stop me on the water and ask) He is using 2 of his own patterns that he has created. Ice Shrimp and an Adam’s bug. Both patterns are available in our shop, sometimes limited though. It is his own personal blend, and trust me it can’t be nocked off.
Bigger fish are here, so hope you get a chance to come and fish before the run is over.
