    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

    Gray Wulff

    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



    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 was

    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.

    Tight Lines!

    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.
