Daily Report

December 31 2023

We would like to wish everyone a safe, healthy and Happy New Year. On Saturday we had scattered flurries with the temperature reaching into the mid 30's. The release from the dam has come down to 750cfs, which is generally and all round good flow, still enough water for the drift boats but easier for the bank anglers to move around. With the recent drop in water level look for fish to be holding in and around the deeper holes and larger runs. For those anglers who are fly fishing, dead drifitng with nymphs, indicator fishing with egg patterns or swinging streamers with sink tips or sinking leaders have all produced results. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, egg sacs, beads, marabou jigs and pink worms have all been productive. 

Suggested patterns;

Egg patterns: Steelie omelette in size 10, Estaz eggs in chart, blue, purple, size 10. Glo-bugs in chart, pink, orange, size 10. Sucker spawn in chart, pink, blue, size 6.

Nymphs: Prince nymphs in size 10, Hare's ear in size 10, Pheasant tails in size 10, Flashback nymphs in size 10, Steelhead hammer in size 12, Beadhead stones in size 10. Rusher nymphs in size 10. 

Streamers: Black or purple egg sucking leeches in size 6. Woolly buggers in black, olive, brow, white, size 6. Fish skull zonkers in black, white, olive size 6.
