How is the Current fishing?

Recommended Posts

The last two times I have fished the Current I and my friends have done well. I have been consistent as far I am taking numbers and size wise better than earlier this season. The smaller fish may have spread out and fattened up a bit. They also seem to be coloring up for the fall spawn. I have been using the beetle to great effect.

Dinks did well last weekend on an orange stimulater with rubber legs for me. Looked like normal/sporadic caddis with big trico hatches/spinners. Tried a baby dry trico spinner, size 20, behind the stimulater but they liked the bigger fly despite feeding frequently on the spinners.   Went deep a few times in the bigger pools to look for the hogs. Had a big guy chase the dink on my line but that was they only thing of size I saw. Watched a pair of 14in browns hunt minnows in front of our camp site all day. Caught one of em later but had more fun watchin' em hunt to be honest. Probably will go back next week.

I have only caught one Brown so far this year. Caught it on a hopper at Baptist Camp. I have a couple nicer rainbows but no hogs. it has been a lot of fun fishing with a four weight. I haven't fished hardly anything but terrestrials this summer, a few caddis and Trico spinners but I caught more chubs than trout on the Tricos. I'm going to start throwing some streamers soon.

Dry flies still working here? Sounds like I need to bring the 3wt. Never been on the Current but definitely need to check it out. Fish size doesn't scare me away, just want to catch something!
