Fall fishing should really pick up

With the stormy weather this weekend, the fall fishing should really pick up – and in reference to my diatribe to open this report – shifts in barometric pressure like this are typically great days to fish. With a dropping pressure being the best, and the low pressure during a storm front as well as the rising pressure afterwards being the next best. When overcast skies are present, the streamer bite should be great especially as it coincides with fall.

We had luck on a variety of bugs yesterday and the biggest factors were getting good dead drifts, minimizing drag on your flies, while using a lot of weight. This has always been a presentation fishery and these fish are typically willing to eat junk flies if presented correctly. Currently, we have stoneflies, crawdads, BWO’s, midges, October caddis and smaller caddis around not to mention worms and eggs. Yesterday the larger fish came on stones, specifically an Olive Pat’s Rubber Legs in a size 8, but we did also find fish on size 14 caddis pupa, BWO nymphs and some larger attractors such as Frenchies. So don’t be afraid to mix up your fly selection, but more importantly don’t be afraid to mix up your weight and depth – and, if your flies haven’t touched the bottom, then you’re not deep enough
