Fishing Report 11/29/2013


Recommended Posts

I had the opportunity to fish with my Dad, Brother and Nephew on Friday. I was happy to see that the water had cleared up quite a bit. It's not gin clear but it, definitely, is not cloudy like it was.

We started the day at the grassy parking lot and just stayed there fishing all over the area. We picked up trout in all of the areas. In the early part of the day, we fished the big water above the kiddie pool. Most of my fish came on the Hair and Copper #14. We couldn't get them to hit a midge.

Later in the day, we moved down the Island. There was a midge hatch coming off that was gray, in color. I had tied up some Copper Dun midges for a trip to TaneyComo, so I tied one of them on, (Size #18), and it was on like donkey kong! I picked up fish on every cast.

I caught a couple of Browns. It's good to see that they are getting bigger.

I hope you guys get a chance to get out and wet a line.

Cheers!

Nice report! I'll be down there on Tuesday with my uncles for our annual Thanksgiving fishing trip. So, copper dun midges huh? May have to tie some up!

I bought a taneypack from riverrun last time I was there to get a hands on sampling. Pictures arent very good online. The p&p looks different actually seeing it. Im sure you would have found a fly, but its nice to have a variety. Glad you had a good day with family

I know what you mean. I had gone to their website before my drift boat trip with them. I tied up a bunch but used theirs on the float. Mine looked just like theirs.

I, also, had Carolyn show me how to spin a soft hackle. It was an interesting technique but I haven't had time to try it, yet.

Yes. Definitely, make sure you have a few on hand, in case they start hatching. I'd have the usual stuff ready also.
