The Amazing Dry Fly Bite!

Recommended Posts

So while I cannot name the creek, I will say that this is my new favorite place! However its a little more crowded than the other small creeks i've been to, It had bigger fish, amazing scenery, and fish very willing to eat my dry flies. Just absolutely amazing fishing!

I went the day before they closed down the San Juan National Forest. Because of such a dry season, and little moisture, we have had some bad fires in and around Durango. They have been devastating. So the authorities closed down the national forest, and I had to get out and hit some small creeks before I couldn't anymore. Luckily I had an amazing trip, and caught quite few fish! And I could not have asked for a more beautiful place to be!

Great looking water!

Even better video. I love seeing the hook sets.

 

This is one of those places where the purveyors of "trout are smarter" and "Bluegill are easier to catch" lose their "mojo".

Put any kind of fish in a school, and they're easier to catch because they need to beat each other to the food.

You must have missed the part where the fish wouldn't take the caddis and so Shawn switched back to the midge pattern and caught fish. In another run it was the other way around. He knew what to use is how I'm seeing it.

Yep ... I'm seeing it that way, too. Sometimes they'll take something, other times they'll take something else. Sometimes, they won't take anything you throw at them.

 

Just like all other fish.

or I didnt know what to use, and thats why I wasnt catching fish in the middle. HAHAHAHHAA I mean, it wasnt too difficult to figure it out. Small midges, and small baetis patterns. The one that was the killer fly for the day was this one... I plan on doing a tying video of it later this week. CDC-Midge-Emerger-Youtube.jpg
