LIR Fishing Report 12/17/2017

Recommended Posts

The LIR is fishing well, again. The water is still a bit murky but is beginning to clear up.  D.O. levels are improving and trout are putting up a good fight, when hooked.  #14 - #16 Mayfly patterns like PTN, GRHE and Soft Hackles are all working.  #8 - #12 Olive Wooly Buggers drifted or stripped are working.  Micro Jigs in black or white and Mega Worms in white or pink are working in the right spots and right conditions.

If you are not keeping fish, please practice good catch and release techniques.  i.e. wet your hands before handling fish, de-barb hooks, etc...

That’s good to hear. Was there a few weeks ago and hooked up with more catfish than I did trout. Thanks for the update!

Went back yesterday to release about 200 baby trout from one of our Trout in the Classroom tanks.  It will be interesting to see if any survive.  Anyway, fished the Watts area with my Dad.  I caught about 2 to his 1.  Between the 2 of us, we caught close to 100 fish.  You'll have to search for them, but when you find one, you'll find that it's a pod of them.

I was there yesterday also. Had read you report and decided to give it a try. Really slow in morning up close to the dam. After lunch we went down to the Watts area and the fish seem to turn on when it started to sprinkle. I think I talked to you as you we walking out about 3 pm. We were fishing along the riprap just below the parking lot. Glad to hear you had a good day and glad to see the water had cleared up and the fish were biting again. We had several runs where one of us caught fish on three or four cast in a row. We tried several different flies and finally settled on a #10 or #12 olive bugger no bead but enough weight to keep it just below the surface. Hope to get back there soon.
