The trout fishing has been great this week despite the change in weather. Table Rock is holding steady at around 908.00 feet above sea level. The Southwestern Power Administration has kept the generators off most mornings until about one or two o’clock in the afternoon. Days like this usually give everyone a chance to do the type of fishing they like to do. In the morning when the water is off the wade fishermen have their time and in the afternoon the fishermen who like the generators running have their time.

Up in the trophy area, when the generators are off, the wading has been good. Fishing #16 to #18 Rusty, Primrose & Pearl, or Ruby Red Midge has been great. Fish these under a Palsa stick on indicator about eighteen to twenty inches deep. Miracle Flies in yellow or peach have also been good. These both can be fished on 5x Fluoroflex tippet also under a Palsa, but on the bottom, not suspended.

Down below Fall Creek fishing has been good when the water is running. There are a couple of things that are working down here. Powerbait or Gulp in white plus a color, for example, white and pink on a hook at the same time. Fish this on a drift rig on the bottom. Air injected worms fished the same way are also catching fish. Trout Magnets in Pink, Cotton Candy, Sassy, or Salmon Fix either under a float of without a float is good also.

I second that on the rusty midge and ruby red midge. When I finally figured that out, they turned the water on. I wish I had gotten there earlier, but was at the mercy of another driver. :(


We all make decisions; but, in the end, our decisions make us.
