September 8

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. It was a good Labor day weekend alot of traffic,but the fishing stayed consisten. The fish are striking our midging riggs all day. The best set up I found was a #16 on top with a #18 black dropper. The top fly I will change with the time and hatches thru out the day. The #18 black I kept as my main fly. Another setup we thru was the streamer rigg. Olive/black, and olive with green hackle wooly buggers were working good. Fish were aggressive on big sand bars throwing your bugger into the current and let it swing down to a seam. Key to this is getting your bugger down close to the bottom,also try with a trailer fly about 16-18" back. Here are some Pics of my client Mike, speacail thanks to him and his wife it was a great day on the Ferry that I will never forget!

Thanks, Kyle Klemme-Guide

Hello everyone,
Hope your all having a great year. As you all know the season is turning and fall is just around the corner, for the Ferry this means lower water flows for September and October. A steady 15,500 cfs to be exact, and remember this is down from our summer flow of 24,500 cfs.
I was the only guide boat on the water today, and one of two total fishing boats out?
I was anticipating the wading and proceeded to a favorite wading bar for this water level, and as expected it was my midging rig that we were having our success. The rig is pretty simple;plsa indicator, 36'' of 5x tippet to a size 16 tung. bead zebra midge(you pick the color), then 20'' to next midge, size 16-18, on 6x, and steel or tungsten bead.
The numbers were good, lots of variation in size, plus for those of you who want to wade the ferry again before the winter; now is the time.I have availability all over September and October, so if Ican be of service please let me know.
So the picture to the right is the other guide now working for MCO, and the author of the previous few blog entries; his name is Kyle Klemme, just wanted to make a semi-formal introduction, he has been a great addition to MCO.

Til next time, tight lines, and always remember to keep that tip up!
