LRR Trip Report 7-22 through 25

Recommended Posts

Got to do my annual trip down to Heber last week and had a great time. Stayed at Red River Adventures right at Swinging Bridge. Great little cabins at the best location on the river (aside from the crowds). Water caught me by 11 or 12 everyday but it was stupid hot enough that it worked out. Did a little night/EARLY morning fishing at around 4 a.m. the last two mornings once water fell out. Caught 1 solid 14-15" brown the first night with a really good fish coming unbuttoned just before it. The second morning I picked up a couple 12-13" stocker 'bows all on a slumpbuster.


Got the opportunity to fish with Pat Pickett on Friday and had a GREAT time. Excellent guide who knows his stuff and taught me how effective a Zig Jig can be on those fish. Learned a lot and truly enjoyed the opportunity. I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to catch some jig fish in the area. My wife ended the day with a nice lil brown, her first ever!


Picked up a handful of last years brown trout and plenty of stockers in the daylight every morning doing everything from swinging Red Asses to drifting sow bugs and midges.

Great little break from work, hopefully I can do it again in late Nov or early Dec and get more low water.
