Fishing trip Feb 3

Recommended Posts

Spent the day on Friday at the lake. A bit cooler than had been forcast, but really nice for Feb. Fished rebar to Outlet 2 area in the morning, caught quite a few on midges and scuds. Tan scud about size 16 seemed to be working the best. LOTS of people for a Friday morn in Feb - stood at rebar and looked up and down and counted 40 people within sight - and more came by afternoon. So that being the case I headed downstream a bit to get away from the crowds - did just as well down there anyway. Mostly drifted the tan scud with no indicator and caught 36 fish in the last three hours, so was pretty good. But most were small <_< My last trip there was the first of Dec and we caught over 40 fish and NONE of them were as small as most of these - last trip most were in the 14 inch plus range - this time only a handful were there. Anyone know why this is? Did some experimenting as well with some stuff on top - when the wind was blowing and there was a chop they would chase just about anything making a ruckus on top - caught the biggest fish that way stripping of all things a triple club on top - about a size 6 or so - pretty big, so missed a lot of the smaller ones, but sure was fun! Lost one really big rainbow. Another great taney trip -

Was there also with JoRob. We started out below Outlet 1 and I did well on a light olive size 18 soft hackle. JoRob was fishing scuds and midges catching fish in the skinny water. I agree with JS, the chop sure helped. I have come to like a little chop..it helps forgive some presentation and fly size, etc. We later moved down to the boat ramp. There the water was fairly still. No luck for me. JoRob caught a few on the moss beds.

Leonard was there earlier. He was stripping a white wollie and catching several.
