December 11Th Report

I will begin by saying that my fishing trips probably aren't an accurate way to judge how the fishing actually is, because I am still learning... a lot.

Anyways, today I headed down to Taneycomo to see if I could trick some hungry trout. It was actually only my 4th time ever trout fishing. I got there when they were still running a lot of water, so I sat in the car for a while. After the water slowed down the fishing was great. For the longest time I was pretty much alone. I only fished down below the boat ramp, and I caught 10 trout total. Two of them were caught on a San Juan Worm in fairly shallow water, while the others were all caught on various sizes of olive wooly buggers.

The olive wooly buggers seemed to be the key to success, and a few other gentlemen were down there really tearing them up. I was still fishing the San Juan Worm when the first guy showed up and was getting bites every time on the olive wooly. Since I am a beginner, I naturally just started doing what he was doing, which resulted in me learning a new technique was well as catching a lot more fish in a short amount of time.

Most of the fish were small, and naturally the biggest ones I saw were hanging out by my feet for a free lunch... Trout are lazy jerks.

I did manage to get a few meaty ones, but they all put up a good fight. I still go home happy even if I only catch two, because that means I did something right at least twice!

The fishing is always good, when you're fishing.

I don't know the specific sizes, but all the ones I fished with had gold beads on them. I mainly let them drift then slowly stripped them back upstream. A few of the bites came on the swing but most of them came when I was stripping. For the most part, they were biting pretty frequent but pretty soft, so it was hard for me to hook up with a lot of them. The other guy down there would wiggle his rod some while stripping it, and that seemed to be working well too.
