Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, my brother Dan ,my wife Lori, and I held a fly fishing school on the White River. We had twelve students including nine people that had never fished before. In the afternoon, we took the class fishing at roundhouse shoals. There was plenty of room to spread out. As soon as we arrived at 1:00 PM, a great caddis hatch started that went on for over three hours. Some of our students fished it with a green elk hair caddis size fourteen and others fished it with a size fourteen hares ear soft hackle. The students averaged about ten trout a piece. The largest fish was a twenty inch rainbow with substantial shoulders. The water was literally boiling with fish and Dan, Lori, and I for once, wished we were fishing instead of teaching. After the hatch we still caught fish on soft hackles but it was slower.

Sorry to say there is no visable progress. The AQED gave the developers until the middle of April to take care of the problem. The only work I have seen is a few bales of hay. This site is 100 acres and it is going to take some engineering and a lot of work not to mention money to fix the problem. The best thing that I could suggest at this point is to monitor any rainfall. If you call Rainbow trout dock they can let you know the existing river conditions. John Berry
