Fishing Report 8-4-2011


Recommended Posts

The past few days the US Army Corps of Engineers has been running generators from about noon to 10 pm and no generators the rest of the day. This has allowed some great wade fishing early in the morning. Midges and scuds will work most of the time in these conditions on 6x or 7x fluorocarbon tippet under an indicator. Most of the fish have been on midges in the middle of the water column in slow water. If you are fishing the fast water switch to a scud on the bottom.

Two generators were turned on about 9 am this morning so I went up to the dam by boat and fished the south bank from the wire to the island and did very well. On the first few drifts egg patterns were working great. Then when the water was higher pink or cerise colored san juan worms just off the bottom were working great.

Below Fall Creek jigs, worms, and Powerbait have been working great depending on how you want to fish. If you like a more active type of fishing you should fish jigs. Eighth ounce sculpin and sculpin/peach jigs have been working well along the banks and jigging them back to the boat. If you like a more relaxed type of fishing then drifting worms or Powerbait is the way for you to go.
