The water is falling out slowly with the current generation. As it levels out and the water settles streamers are getting some looks, but nymphs still bring the most fish to the net. Fishing soft hackles over the shoals works best when wading. The future generation forecast is showing there may be additional windows for wading and floating this week.
|That's Got to be a Good Feeling|
Speaking of weeds, river bottoms, and bugs, oh and fish, the fish on the Elk are healthy and colorful. Nymphs are a good way to bring them to the net. We haven't seen a brookie in several months, so maybe my prediction the Elk would be a good place for them could be wrong. We are spending some time on the Elk this week and if there is a holdover brook trout hopefully it will be as nice as the one we caught on the Caney this past week. Speaking of catching fish, cause this is a fishing report, fishing small streamers is a good way to catch'em. Just any old color might work, but white is best. Hey it's still Winter and we all know Winter means white streamers right? Right.
There we have it, one fishing report. Now is the time to get out there and fish. The crowds are thin and it is easier to find some solitude, while feeling a rod load. My suggestion is to get out there, stand in the cold water, find what works and kick the duds to the curb in quick fashion.
