Well, it’s that time of year. Streams and rivers are high and brown. Good thing we have plenty of still water options! Luce, Hogan and Newton lakes are all fishing well.
Jack and Jack endured a morning of cold, wind and rain to catch some bass on their first day of fly fishing. (Dad caught some, too.) The fishing was slow, but these boys hung in there to the very end. My kind of kids!
Streamer fishing is good on area lakes. Black is working best, but olive is also taking fish. Not much insect activity yet, but look for damsel and dragon flies to start hatching as the weather warms. Chironomids are active, so fishing a big midge nymph under an indicator is also a good way to go.
