Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

Fishing was much better today... it's amazing what a little wind will do. Believe it or not, that's what made the difference.

Almost everyone went home happy today (I always have to say almost cause there's always that one person... you know...). Everyone that checked out caught trout today- bait fishermen and lure fishermen.

Vince reported to me he had a nice evening of fly fishing at the MDC boat ramp. He caught numerous rainbows on what he calls a woolly bugger - size #20 - which I may call a bit scud (Rader's name). He was wading up from the ramp in the slow moving, shallow water there.

He also said there was a young man doing well throwing a 2-3 inch rapala fishing from the bank close to the ramp.

I had a great weekend of fishing!

buggers worked(olive mostly) cracklebacks, zebra midges, and a funky looking 2 headed san juan worm i picked up from angerls & archers on saturday. i was fishing that at the rebar hole with a strike indicator about 2 ft above the fly. as soon as the fly entered into the deeper part of the hole, i was getting hit. on almost every cast i would get hit. didnt land all of them and most were in the 16 inch range. there wasnt too much action on scuds for us this weekend at all.

there was one guy that landed a 25incher in the rebar hole on saturday. he wasnt fishing in the hole itself but was standing on the bank upriver and throwing a fly into the flats section. he said he was fishing a tournament, was that for your tourny Phil? Said he could only record 1 fish.

we planned on fishing saturday night during the full moon. but we had one too many glasses of scotch and watched the broncos win!! YEAH!

Well the Parsons & KC boys had a blast! Mainly used grey and black jig with 1/80 oz black head and black body (thread). Saturday and Sunday went to a Ginger jig with black head and pink body (thread). We mainly fished from Fall Creek to Short Creek. We were pulling up to dock @ Lilleys and saw two guys fishing off main dock with a stringer of nice trout. Biggest trout they had was over 20 inches! But all in all we had a great time and look forward to coming back. Thanks again Phil, Jerry, and Lisa for a great weekend!!!
