Fishing Report for 11/20/18 (Sorry its late!)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! My name's Micah and Im relatively new to this community and to flyfishing. It has been a childhood dream to get into it and be successful, so at the ripe old age of 26 (yes, i know im not old), ive decided to just do it! So this is my first post about what ive had success with while fishing on Taneycomo! Sorry its almost a month late, but hope this helps! 

My wife and I were very blessed by the good poeple at Lilley's Landing and their exceptional service. They were quick and eager to help, and offer advice for catching trout on this beautiful lake. We got a boat, and fished from 9am-3pm and had very good success in a little deeper water and in shaded areas, the sun was shining so they were not as shallow. so we went for the jigs. They bit on an olive and peach jig pretty much all day, so we didnt change that at all, also caught a small trout on a brown Wooley. they werent hitting the flies at all after that, so the jig on 4lb fluoro was the big winner. 

the next day I went by myself and waded near the dam and within the first hour i had 5 fish on my line with a #18 black zebra midge, but only landed one nice 18" rainbow because i was impatient... was accompanied by many other fly fisherman who were pulling fish out left and right on scuds. Was running a double nymph rig with the #18 black Zebra midge, and a #18 tan scud with 18" of 6x tippet between them, didnt have luck on the scud but they bit the midge eveytime. Any way, hope this helps!
