Floating the upper kings in June

Recommended Posts

hey all,

 

I'm floating the kings in June from Rockhouse to Trigger Gap. I wanted to know what color, type of flies that need in my bag of tricks for the float!? Also, I'm going to be swinging flies through the trophy area. 

 

Thanks,

delopez

Leech/weighted woolie type patterns (brown, olive, & black) work well, As will crawfish patterns. Clousers are good where there's current to put some action on them.

What about for fishing with casting tackle? What colors are working well with plastics? Frogs? Jig-types? shakey-head rigs? etc?

Tubes, curly-tail grubs, and small finesse worms should cover it. Same colors mentioned above (but don't be afraid to experiment with others).

I floated twice last week. Once from rock house to trigger gap and once from trigger gap to the farm. From rock house the fishing was poor with a lot of very small fish. From trigger gap to farm was a lot better fishing. Lower quantity but much higher quality fish. One thing to note is there are a lot of trees that you have to maneuver under around and even through. Keep an eye out I was having to watch my fly rod a lot. It's a good float though. I used black buggers with success but with all the trees I switched to the spin rod with a metallic blue grub. Enjoy!
