Eggs Patterns?


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hello all, new guy from OKC here. I'm relatively new to fly fishing and most of my experience has been in CO and AR so I'm doing my best to glean some info from this great forum.

I'm heading down to LIR with my Dad and brothers this weekend and hope to find some trout. I heard that the eggs and san juans are working ok in that murky water.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

to life!

The last time that I went, I tied up some #14 BeadHead Pheasant Tail Nymphs with a Fire Orange Thorax instead of the Peacock Herl. The fly was a good producer. As cloudy as the water is, I'd think any pattern that was bright would work well. Hence, the eggs and worms.

Good luck with your trip this weekend and post a report when you get back.

Thanks, I'll try some bright nymphs. As long as I can bring one fish to hand, the sunrise on the water will be enough for me!

The last time I was down there, I fished a Bob white and did ok in the murky water. So, maybe have something white with you as well. Just my thought.

Anyone have a favorite spot down here? We've thrown everything bright in the fly box around the darn with no avail. Some guys caught a few on powerbait, but thats not near as fun.

I'd be happy to have some help, We're getting skunked!

Thanks all!

to life!

Egg patterns in yellow or pink below a indicator. If that isn't working try stripping a black or orange brown wooly bugger. May have to change up several times to find what they are biting.

Tight lines,

There are a few other places to access the river besides the dam. Read through some of the other posts and u should find directions. I'm personally not a fan of fishing up by the dam, I prefer to stay downstream but I havent been down there since the floods except for a night time trip to chase stripers, which was a bust. Who knows what Watts or T&M looks like now.

Brightly colored worm and egg patterns should produce...also dont be afraid to throw micro jigs under an indicator as well. Brightly colored buggers or mohair leeches should produce as well. Personally, till the river clears up...I'll go elsewhere.

I agree. The last time I fished the river, I didn't like the cloudy water and got bored with the view after 3 hours. I did manage to catch a few fish but It was one of the few times Id been fishing that I felt it wouldve been better to stay home. :shocked...again:
