Yep, but the targets appeared empty today. River was still a bit roily and blown out from recent rains, or, the fish got the lockjaw and didn't dig on any of my prawn/roe/marabou jig presentations.

That's ok, i got cold and wind burned and didn't have to work bent over in a dingy old barn all day :cool:

Bill/Dave, they are both badass flies. I carry both.

... and our streams and rivers, if not frozen are low due to snow higher up.

Caught a lot of large mouth bass in water like that in Mexico on the Rio Hardy River, until the Mexicans started using Seine nets. Really screwed up the fishing. You only fished there in the winter, much too hot in the summer.

These areas hold fish when the run is on and the water holds its color

http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/148/l_573e1360ba684151b76df523b29edada.jpg

That green *tailout is where they tend to rest and stack up after sucking wind up those riffles below, that are about 150 yards long.
The seems -a couple feet on either side of the yellow lines- can be most productive in various conditions.
The broken choppy water between the red slot is good for clear and warmer temps when they seek cover and dissolved O2.
But, when the water is high and silty like it was yesterday, the only "classic" holding water still in shape is the brown areas, and that's about what color it washttp://www.leatherneck.com/forums/images/icons/icon6.gif

Need big bright terminal gear like chartreuse, fluorescent oranges, reds, pinks, glow-inda-dark and scent.



*Tailouts are almost always semi-crescent shaped when viewed from heights; look for them, they hold the most salmonid.

When it's high and murky, look for 'em to be closer to the banks where they can get away from the silt a little bit.

Most of the day was spent standing right at the water line or less than 1 ft. deep with extended arm and a 10.5 ft pole: open the spool and thumb into a few feet of water, back bounce, move down stream, repeat, rest arm/change up presentation; repeat.

I was hunting remnants of the silver run, will try again after Thanksgiving to see if the 2salt steelies are in the system yet. Have you been on the rivers lately..

KS has been raising trout for some time now and stocking several lake around the state twice a year now. One of these days going to have to try and catch one or two of them things.

I have had my nose buried in books related to this Diagnostic Imaging program I'm currently in. I'm missing out on the salmon run in the Uma, but I saw a few of the fish caught and they're boots. I'm guessing 'cause of lack of water.

I love fishing. Any idea how to catch the big fish of the day?

hbharrison

Dunt know about big fish where you are at but here in KS we have big Cats. Channel, flat head and Blues. Landed a nice 48lbs first of the year on one of our lakes. Most one I keep are around 10 to 20lbs anything larger is a pain to keep and clean. But we do have lots of kitty cats and it is fun catchen them.

the productive streams here abouts are those where the griz bear like to hang out....people tend to stay away....have walked out with my limet every time...not real fishing though...its just drop your fly in the water and pull the fish out....cut throught and rainbow are keepers...bull trout are protected...can keep up to 50 eastern brook...guess they are tryin to get them cleaned out of our waters?...they taste the same as western cutthrought...only dont seem to get as big
on flathead lake its laketrout..macks....they were planted there back in the 50s....have cleand the lake out of most of its native fish.....then theres the pik in the river that were planted round about the same time....they keep the browns, rainbo, bulltrout, cutthrought, big and small mouth bass numbers in check

Suprising how well a gold number 12 hook with a couple loops of red thread and red trailer works. Never had the chance to fish for salmon but that set up works good for trout. Used to take the eyeball off the first caught and put it on a hook.

<iframe title="YouTube video player" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/2FMpBSv36SU" allowfullscreen="" width="640" frameborder="0" height="390"></iframe> Drifting lead will also slam trout, on streams with sufficient flow. Keeps your lure/bait moving at a natural or suspended speed near the bottom, and covering more than just the meat of a hole. A small corkie or pill float just above a nightcrawler keeps the hook off the bottom. Trout take it deep, no real need to set a sticky sharp hook, barbless

When flies and Rooster Tails just ain't fillin your limit
