Thread: LMF river

  1. #1

    Default LMF river

    Went down on tuesday so it wasn't very crowded. I don't go very often because it's over a 3 1/2 hour drive. We had a good day catching fish on dries, nymphs, buggers and wet flies. I caught most of my fish on a nymph and indicator. Got to see a BWO hatch and so did the trout. It was neat to see the BWO's just appear but even cooler to see the trout nailing them. I caught a couple on dries when the hatch was on but didn't have a dry that was exact color, so I just picked the closest and got some action. Biggest fish was 15". Heres a pic of a rainbow I caught on an olive flashback bugger. Nice and distinct black spots.

    Sounds like a good trip to me.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Sounds like a blast... I'd love to get some fishing action, but unfortunately today was 34 degrees with heavy rain and some snow... (read: I'm jealous!)

    I went down on tuesday morning, fished 11 hours and stayed the night. Fished wednesday for about 6 hour before driving 3 1/2 hours home. It was the best fishing I've had in my almost year of fly fishing. March brown dry fly caught me many many fish. Caught several also on a micro jig and indicator set up in the rougher water of spillway creek. I would fish dawn to dusk everyday but wouldn't make any money and have a job.

    The below picture is where the march dries did the job





    The third white water up on the below picture, I had a nice one break my 6x tippet. I was afraid to let him run because he was right there by the edge of the really fast current. I had him for about 10 seconds and then he broke off.

    Hi jcw355,

    That doesn't look like water that I would be using a 6X tippet. I would feel better with a 4X.

    LMF is below Broken Bow Lake in Oklahoma. I use 5x tippet too. I need to get some more. I recently was using 8x on the Elk river in West Virginia with size 32 spinners. WAS NOT use to that really light stuff and broke off a couple of times. I use a 3wt rod so I use 5 and 6x tippet a lot.

    I've been reading up on what all I can find on the LMF. I understand there's a 3.8 miles section thats off limits to boats. If you don't mind me asking, Is this the area your fishing? Any idea how the fishing is this time of year? Thanks for any info.
