Hello everyone, Well I have some great new! I herd the first few cicadas buzzing along the river yesterday. I couldn't resist, I just had to try it. So I tied on a home tied cicada pattern and a #18 zebra midge 20'' below and started pounding the shoreline, within 30 minutes, I had my first taker! I had 20 fish break the surface to take my "big bug" in only about 4 hours. This picture is of the biggest, she is 18'' and FAT, got her on the dropper. As my father had said the record breaking high temps we have been having this week have really got the cicada season coming quick! Make some room in the schedule and get here for this! The rest of this month and all of July, this is what we wait all year for, this is the 10 fishing on the 1-10 scale, and we are almost there! If my father or I can be of service, give us a call. Thanks everyone, see you soon.

Hello My Friends, This is a picture of Danial Doolittle and myself with a fat 18 incher he caught with a size 18 lazier midge. She fought her tail off. She jumped and done summer salts in the air it was awesome. This time of year 90% of the rainbows jump at least once and know matter the size they all fight very hard. They are fat and feisty,lots of fun. The best news this week is that the weather has been hot and dry. That means the cicadas are going to be here sooner than later. Last year we started throwing the big bugs on June, 23 2009. Speaking of last year I filmed a T.V. show on 6/29/2009 as it turned out it was the best day of catching the whole season. My educated guess is cicada season will start any day and last thru August. By the way one will be able to see a 30 minute video of the awesome action we have at the Ferry during cicada season right hear on my web sight. So look for it real soon. The fishing on the river right now is as good as it gets as far as the midge fishing goes. I say its a 9 on the 1 to 10 scale. You guys always ask me which is the best time to fish the Ferry, well it is now. From today thru August. For thoughs of you that know me ,know I Would not write this way unless I could back it up. So get up hear as soon as you can and test us out. I look forward to it. Rocky your fishing buddy. , Visit Home at http://www.LeesFerryFlyFishing.com
