Default Re: time for the eyes!..need some pointers..

Wall to wall fishing doesn't sound real fun, but that is the way people fish on the Russian River during Alaska's salmon season. I haven't fished for walleye, but if they are on the bottom, I'm wondering if the same fishing technique would work. When standing shoulder to shoulder, casting doesn't really work, instead play out say 15-20 ft of line and let the current take it down stream, once the line tightens, pull it to the surface and then lobe the rig upstream and then fish it like you would in Czech nymphing, as the line floats downstream lift the rod higher and higher keeping very little line on the water and as the rig passes your position start lowering the rig, all the while bottom bouncing the fly. This will require quite a bit of weight to get to the bottom depending on the current. It might not work but it would be worth a try since roll casting in close quarters will be interesting to say the least, but then it might be a good way to get a little elbow room once your neighbors see how your fishing maybe they won't want to tuck in nice a close. LOL!
