    Anyone getting out this weekend? I might try and hit the LT if the flows calm down a bit.

    WORMS, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!





    Yeah I hear they are pretty active on them right now but they always work well up there. San Juan hatches can be productive. I am bringing a streamer arsenal as well. Are you going to be up there Sat Jim?

    HELLO HELLO HELLO


    It's like a ghost town around here. Is anyone getting out? I got up to the LT last weekend and hooked a couple rainbows but nothing special. Met up wit hStefan from TU and fished with him for a bit. It was fun but the wtaer was raging! Not sounding good for the long term from what Stefan says. They're holding the flows like this to clear space in the lakes for run off. Gonna be a long summer boys.

    Chris,
    I'm not sure when I'm going to be in the region even though I could be there in an hour and a half. My concentration has been on Striped Bass, and it's been good.

    The Green Drake hatch on the T will be interesting this year.

    HELLO Chris: The last I fished was on 5/14 with my club on the Lower Yuba. The flows were around 5000 cfs and I caught 2 Rainbows one about 16" that I posted a picture in the Rainbow Trout thread and the others was around 12". I caught them by fishing slow deep holes between Willow Trees with lots of weight with Jimmy Legs and a Red Copper John. The average was 2 fish per club member, but one caught 8. I started at 8 a.m. took an hour lunch at noon and didn't hook up on my first fish till around 3:30 p.m. and had to cover lots of water.

    I guess I'm going to either have to switch to shad fishing on the Lower American or buy a float tube, but I'm not much of a fan of Still water fishing I think I just prefer rivers and their surroundings.

    I need to get down there and fish for some Stripers some day. I've always wanted to do that ever since I moved out here.

    Hello Chris
    Work and weather have been hindering me, I did get out as noted above, to Davis, and hooked up, but, everytime I have planned to get out since one of these winter storms rolls in. This weekend I can fish, but have to stay close as I have the on-call duties for work. So, with the truckee blown out, it looks like I am gonna have to settle for sparks marina unless I can find some slow water on the truckee.

    1 week vacation -
    Saturday - Davis from shore - Camp Five - hooked up one 16 incher in about 2 hours, then the wind kicked in and made things difficult. I was the only one that hooked up during that hour and it was on (gasp) powerbait. the wind kept me from fly fishing.

    Monday - Davis from the tubes - hooked 6 landed 3 - Denny's stillwater nymph, worked slow and at around 10 feet. it got breezy, which killed any surface action, but we did ok just the same. I did see some midges and dark mayflys on the surface and there were occasional rises when the wind let off a bit.

    Tuesday - Antelope lake, most effective combo was a green and rust stillwater nymph at around 10 feet with a red copper john about 2 feet below. I worked this slow with an occasional twitch. the fish seemed to hit just after the twitch, the twitch works which I believe is why I landed 9, and my buddy only landed a few (I showed him the twitch and it worked for him too). This was my first trip to antelope and it was worth the two hour drive. Even the little fish fight pretty hard here, first fish I caught was 14 and largest was 18, there was jumping, running, spinning me in the float tube, etc. Activities you would expect from larger fish, but these guys put up a fight. there were flying ants on the surface, and risers to them, but, I couldn't get any takes on the surface and the subsurface fishing was good so I only spent about 30 minutes trying. There was also a midge hatch that went off, which is what led my partner to tying on a red chrinomid and me attaching a red copper john.

    Thursday - heading to a little lake (to be named later) stuck back in the woods

    Friday - Frenchman's - annual cubscout campout will probably only get a few hours of fishing in and mostly from shore back near the group camps. I will follow up next week.
