9/4 thru 9/7 report

Recommended Posts

We just got back from Taney and had a great trip.  The fish are so thick, healthy and beautiful colored right now. Taney is in great shape! Our best fishing was in the restricted zone between look out and fall creek all week.  We caught fish on sculpin Peach jigs in the morning till the sun got high then had to go to natural colors, sculpin and ginger, sculpin brown, sculpin wine etc.  One day they got off the jig bite big time so we switched to micro jigs on fly rods and it was hammer time all day long doing that and it was a blast.  We are still pretty new to fly rods and stuff but goodness we caught alot of fish and had a blast doing it.  Shallow side was our best but the big fish of the trip came on the bluff side. It wasn't all roses this trip as the jerkbait bite was WAY off for us. We caught plenty of smallmouth and Kentucky bass on it, quite a few rainbows on it but only one brownie and I threw it ALOT.  Something was just off and I can't figure out what it was.  The fishing from the cable to look out also wasn't as good as we have come to expect either. The stretch from look out to the narrows was for sure the best stretch this time around.  An interesting note is we had a half dozen nice smallies on the bluff across from lilleys this trip.
