  1. Actually neither... Bruce creek shoal.
  2. They shut the water down on Bull Shoals because of flood conditions downstream so there has been some great wade fishing the last few days. Took the boat to a favorite shoal and got out and waded. Caught quite a few rainbows and this nice brown. He hit a ruby midge dropper beneath a peach colored egg. I lost a real pig of a rainbow also. Looked to be in the 25" range and really fat. Hook just pulled out. Hopefully we will get a few more days of low water before they open it up again.

  4. The Newport gauge is currently at 14.6 and rising so I guess that is why Bull Shoals is cutting back.
  5. Just what we needed... more water. Interesting that they shut Bull Shoals dam down to minimum flow this morning for the first time in months. Went up to the state park around noon and caught some nice rainbows on small caddis dries which were hatching on the low water. Saw quite a few stranded trout from the drop out in small depressions and lots of sculpins in the receding water. Schedule shows water coming back up tomorrow morning so hope the herons and eagles don't eat all the trout.
  6. Seems to me that MDC should designate some C&R sections on their trout parks and put those pellet pigs in there.
  7. Waded the backyards around Wildcat access this afternoon and had fun on dry flies. There were lots of fish feeding on midges and small mayflies that were hatching in the grass. Size 20 Parachute Adams worked well. Switched back to the peach egg and caught this nice rainbow. He was holding just below a Redd and apparently waiting on eggs.
  8. FishinDave… That male brookie is a real beauty. Great colors. Congrats on a great trip.
  9. Most definitely did. I saw him slowly swim off after that.
  10. Waded around Wildcat access this morning and the water is still up in the back yards. Caught around a dozen rainbows and a couple of small browns on a size 20 Parachute Adams and then switched to a hopper once the sun came out. Caught this brown on the hopper and had a really big brown come up and look at the hopper but turned away. He looked to be in 28" range and was in spawning colors. Oh well, fun to see him and maybe next time he will eat. Caught a few more nice size rainbows on the hopper.
  11. With all the high water I have been challenged to find some good wade fishing areas. The last few days have worked out pretty well. I took the boat up from Wildcat access and found some protected water along the inside bends of the river. These are areas on homeowner's backyards that are now flooded. The trout are up in in really shallow water eating BWO's that are coming up. Caught lots of smallish rainbows and browns along with a few nice ones. Size 20 BWO's and Adams worked.
  12. John that was a great trip. I had no idea there were yellow perch in the White river. I think that cuttie is one of the Yellowstone guys the AGFC stocked earlier this year just to confuse us. The true Bonnevilles have most of their spots on the back half of their bodies. Next time you are up here come by for a beer....
  13. Looks like a great trip. The White has been good lately with the steady flows. What, no fly rods involved??? They have been coming up to BWO's recently.
  14. Cool, those are some nice rainbows. Congrats on another great trip.
  15. Don't think they have ever stocked brookies as the water is a bit warm for them. Brooks like cold water. I have caught quite a few browns and a few cutties over the years and lots of rainbows.
