Last Day of April.

Well the Swallows have arrived and that means one thing, there here for the midges.  Our midge hatch is in full swing.  Coming off the Walk in this afternoon we will start there.  We started our day around noon, we only saw a couple people out at that time of the day.  With the weather warming up I believe that most anglers are waiting for the morning and evening bites.  That was the case for most success a few weeks ago, but with hatches coming off all day the fish are feeding while the food is there.  I set my guys up with two rigs, one was our suspended midge set up running about three feet to the first fly and around 18'' to the second fly.  On the other rod we dead drifted a olive wooly bugger, trailing it with a size 16 midge just a couple inches shorter than the suspended rig.  Fish were active from the moment we got there tell we left around 4pm.  I wish I could share my secret color midge that has been my only color of choice, but I have to keep my favorites mine.  Dont get me wrong I have no problem showing you, but only on the water.  Biggest tip and we cant preach enough to catch fish at the Ferry is the "Dead Drift".  Fish are very selective but will eat most sizes and colors as long as you have a correct drift. Here are a couple of shots I snapped off today I hope you enjoy, and to see you out there.  Check us out tomorrow for my up river report.  Thanks for checkin in tell next time set quick and and keep your tip up.

Fishing up river with a good water flows through the week days have made for good fishing all day. Fish have been healthy and with full belly's. With the Midge hatches coming on stronger and more often through the days it has been my only fly the last few trips. A standard zebra midge or a color of the days choice, running it with our 6 foot midging rig and another 16-20 inches to your dropper works really well in slower runs through seams on gravel bars. Fish have been very shallow so start close to shore when you start to fish then work your way out. Nymphing rigs with anywhere from a #1-4 split shot depending on speed and depths works well on nice fish on the outer sides of the seams in deeper water. On my lunch breaks I always can bomb a 200 grain depth charge with a olive flash woolly bugger and hook into a couple so don't forget about streamers. Hit a nice swing of water were you can throw into current and let it swing back into a seam or eddy and start stripping. Fish have been hitting it on the swing with both rigs so with the midges wait that extra 5 seconds and let it swing up at the end of your run and you might be surprised. For streamers be ready on the swing to set before it reaches your strip back in.

Walk In-

The Walk In has been fishing really well and producing a wide variety of fish. The rig of choice is a short Nymphing rig. Glow bugs and Midges have been working well. The weekends have been running lower water flows then the weekdays so it makes alot more nice little runs and kick outs at the top of the boulder field. At the back side of any rock that makes a seam or shoot I have been throwing above them allowing my flys to get down and run it through every one starting close to shore and working my way out as far as you want or have the energy to handle. Just above the Paria is a nice gravel bar that has been fishing good as well. The midge color always will change thru the day the main key for fishing success on lees ferry up river or down is a dead drift presention is everything. If your not getting a drag free drift (dead drift) your missing out on fish. If you need help or not sure how this works were always available to teach you how. Tell next time keep your lines tight.
