July 14, 2010

Hello all my fellow fishers, this is a picture of a beautiful fat female rainbow in her summer colors. Kay Flanagan caught this beautiful fish on a size 8 cicada pattern. The fishing at Lee's Ferry is as good as it gets, as far as dry fly fishing goes. We start the day fishing cicada's and end the day fishing cicada's from the boat. I know most of us would rather fish dry flies, but right now all methods are working well. The weather has been fairly warm, but we have had the pleasure of cloud cover in the afternoon. Hardly any wind to speak of, basically perfect conditions. We still have slots open, so those of you that can get way for a couple days, this would be the perfect time to do so. In my opinion this is the very best fishing Lee's Ferry has to offer the size, numbers, and weather conditions all coming together for us to take advantage of, and have a great time on the ferry. If we can be of service, please contact us. Rocky & Mick

Fishing Report July 2nd 2010

Hello all my fellow fishers,
July is here, the cicadas are singin, the water is up under the trees, and the trout are taking the "big bugs". We have been throwing cicadas at the banks for the last two weeks, and have been fairly successful, but now that we are in July the high water is here and we expect the fishing to pick up. It always does. We are now fishing strictly from the boat. The weather has been calm and warm, with some occasional afternoon sprinkles. So when you come bring a big hat, sunscreen, shorts, and your sandals. 6 and 7 weight rods can be an arm saver, for those of you that have them. We are using 9' 3x leaders, and sizes 6-8 cicada patterns, in black, or chocolate brown. For those of you that have fly shops close by, don't be afraid to bring a selection of cicadas. The action is fast and furious, so those of you that want to fish 3 people to a boat, is a good time to do so, because by the time you have sat in the shade and had a cold drink, it will be your turn again. This is the only time of year we encourage 3 anglers to a boat. Deep nymphing, eddie fishing, and streamers, are all tactics that will also produce good numbers, but why when you can be throwing the "big bugs" from the boat. So hope to here from you soon, and those of you that are already booked, we are looking forward to fishing with you. Rocky and Mick
