Summer Patterns?


Recommended Posts

Greetings!

Long time LOZ poster, first time Elk River poster so here we go...

I'll be canoeing with the wife and another couple this weekend, putting in at River Ranch, I've floated the Elk & North Fork several times, but this will be the first time I'll have a couple sticks with me on the Elk eyebrows.gif Not asking for any trade secrets here, just a critique of what I plan on bringing... and whatever else you're willing to share/recommend! Going after brown/green fish...

  • Rapala Skitter Pop (firetiger)
  • Stanley Ribbit (green or green/red)
  • 1/8oz, 3 1/2" Finesse Tube (green pumpkin)
  • Tiny Deep Rebel Craw (light green/orange)
  • 3/32oz Ned Rig (pbj and green pumpkin)

Thoughts? Am I missing anything?

Thanks in advance!

Well, if you go on Saturday leave the fishing gear behind. That is one of my tips. It just isn't worth it on a Saturday this time of the year.

There are only three things in life that are certain : death, taxes, and the wind blowing at Capps Creek!

If I had multiple opportunities to fish it per year I may, but I'm willing to tough it out considering this will be my only trip. Just can't bear hearing smallmouths smack the surface without a stick in my hand. Made it work a few weekends ago at LOZ in a kayak, with mid-Saturday boat traffic. I'm willing to put up with the crazies if it means a chance at a good fish...

He isnt exaggerating, you literally could not realistically fish that section on a Saturday. if u really want to fish check out a couple of very close rivers, much better for everything imo......

I'm not doubting anybody on here, just fishing regardless.
