Was a fun weekend trout fishing on the Blue River in Oklahoma!  Recent rains made it tough Saturday with trout caught mainly using bait. Trout Derby was in progress with some promising fish caught by others. Did fish Sunday and was able to catch five for dinner. Caught flyfishing using a tandem rigged near deere and rainbow warrior trailing fly or a near deere and john deere trailing fly.

Here is the fishing fly that we used in a Tandem Rig when fishing the Blue River in Oklahoma Sunday. Had struck out Saturday but came back Sunday and managed to out five trout on the stringer. And, do check back,... will get a follow-on video of the Tandem Rig technique we used!

Made it to the Blue River in Oklahoma Saturday. Had a great time. Water was clear and fish were active and once we figured out the pattern... able to get them on our stringer! Overall, nice day on the Blue... Tandem Rigged fishing flies were the key again!
Tandem Rigged Streamer and Midge Worked Again...! #flyfishing #blueriver

Quick update as of Friday evening, November 22:
Wood Net... just finished the new netting for the wood net. Just in time to make a run to the Blue River Saturday morning. More to come on our trip Saturday. Net did well, lost no trout, and limited out!
 
Trout Stock Schedule...more fun with spreadsheets and modifying the TPWD Winter Trout Stocking Schedule. It's posted on out site; do check it out for an easier to reference schedule with respect to stocking dates in chronological order.
 
Tandem Rig Article... Hubpages article that provides more details on how we setup tandem rigged fishing flies. Includes suggestions and tips on how we like to fish them!

Video of the action from Saturday morning, November 23, 2019 when we fished the Blue River in Oklahoma. Temps were in the 30s and the action was slow but steady. Able to limit out fishing the channel and undercut by the "Island" using Tandem Rigged Fishing Flies and Mop Flies.
 
Tandem Rigged used was the Too Deere... Leading Near Deere with trailing John Deere to catch five trout.Then, fished a Mop Fly... no tandem rig, to catch and release several. Bite slowed, tried other fishing flies and got a strike or two.
 
Finally, caught and kept number six to make a limit using a Tandem Rig... Lead Mop Fly and trailing John Deere.Most trout went for the John Deere or the Mop Fly.  Also, had a stretch of missed strikes... bummer. As well as no strikes... bite turned off for some reason.
 
Water was not as clear as last week but the fish were readily taking fishing flies.Also, after cleaning the fish noted a number of them had full bellies of Chartreuse PowerBait!

Happy Thanksgiving... Running out of Near Deere and Mop Flies... time to tie more. Ended up tying Olive, Pink, and White Near Deere, two variants of the Mop Fly, and some John Deere. All done... now just need to go fishing. Hoping sooner than later! PS: Lots of rain has our fishing plans on hold but see an opening in the weather this weekend.

Raining but should clear up tomorrow. That said, when you cannot go fishing, can do fishing related things... here is one.
 
Re-published a HubPages article for ease of reference and readability that summarizes key information when planning a trout fishing trip to Turner Falls Park - a popular summer park in Oklahoma that becomes a trout fishery in winter!  Check it out when you get a chance.

The Team limited out at Turner Falls Park near Davis, Oklahoma with several nice sized ones that went for a Gold Super Duper. Other trout were caught on the fly. Of the trout caught fly fishing, one trout went for a PMC Emerger, another trout took a John Deere, else the remainder taken on fishing flies went for a Mop Fly in Chartreuse with an Orange Egg Sac or Chartreuse with a Pearl Chenille collar. Water was clear, temps climbed to the 60s, and the sun was shining. The wind did kick up as the day progressed. That said, it was a perfect day to be on a river fishing for trout!

That's a good question, Poopdeck.

 

fshng84,

I've read those pages before ... and it still doesn't actually answer the question.  You're the only one shown in the videos.  Is your family the rest of the team?  Are the other members "silent partners" who don't want their identities known?  Or perhaps you say "team" to pretend that you're data base is wider than just you?

Had a similar question last week concerning the Team on one of our YouTube videos... most often, when one was with me, they opted not to appear in the videos.  Out of habit, I use the plural.

Had a great time fishing Turner Falls last week for Rainbow Trout. Go to pattern was a Mop Fly that had a Chartreuse body and an Orange Egg Sac.
 
Simple pattern to tie but tended to spend more time trimming and shaping the Egg Sac as well as ending with lots of wasted egg yarn material.
 
Decided to try a dubbing loop to this time... so far, liking it. Quick tie, less time shaping, and less wasted material. Do give it a try!
