Fishing Report 4/10/2006

Recommended Posts

My wife, Lori, and I waited untill mid afternoon before going fishing at Rim Shoals yesterday to avoid the weekend crowd. There was a little wind but it was warm and pleasant. We started off fishing Elk Hair Caddis because that is what we have been fishing everyday for the past few weeks. We caught a couple of trout each on the dries but it was much slower than before. When I pumped the stomaches of the first few fish they contained mostly adult caddis but had a few small midges. I switched to a black Norfork Beadhead and immediately began picking up fish. I caught over a dozen but nothing over 14 inches. Lori stayed with the Elk Hair most of the afternoon with limited success. She tried a Partridge and Orange (her favorite soft hackle) and picked up a few. The hatch was a virtual no show. It was still a nice outing and nymphing produced fish.
