10/17 Fishing Report
Permalink  
 


Hi Everyone!

I've been fishing/learning Putah Creek for the last year or so.  Yesterday was my personal best.  From dawn to dusk I hooked about 15 in the 6-12" range.  Half of those I got in the net.  About 5:30 I tied into my biggest Putah Rainbow yet (see pic).  What a beautiful fish to end an absolutely beautiful day!

NICE!!! Love those days. Nice big, fat female. Looks like you treated her well with water dripping from your hands. 

 

Just a a reminder to EVERYONE: get them in quick and keep 'em wet. This time of year they are getting ready to spawn and need that energy!

Awesome! I had my best weekend ever on the creek last weekend when the flows dropped and while it was raining. I too was catching a bunch in the 10" - 14" range. I probably hooked a dozen more that I didn't land. Not sure why that was happening but it was still fun! They were biting on almost every fly I presented on my euro-nymph setup. The fish at #1 were a bit more difficult. I could see some very nice sized fish but they weren't interested. I'm assuming there's more fishing pressure there and they're a bit more selective.

What flies/setup were working for you?

Cool!  I talked with another guy who caught a bunch on Sunday in the rain as well.  My guess is that the barbless hook accounts for losing so many fish.  Someone may have a different opinion on that?

I used an indicator rig all day.  9’ 5X tapered leader.  In the morning I used a San Juan Worm with an Olive/Black Caddis Larva dropper…caught a bunch on both.  In the afternoon/evening I stopped getting hits on the worm, switched to a WD40 and Egg.  I caught a couple on the WD40 and zero with the Egg.  Swapped the Egg back out for the Caddis Larva and caught the big female on that.

How do you like that Euro setup?  I’ve never tried it.

The Euro setup is nice. I've only just started using it. I'm using the Rio Euro Nymph leader with about ~12" 6x fluro tippet and two flies. My arm gets a little tired high-sticking my 4wt but that's about the only thing I don't like about it. It works really well in faster water where i've found that indicators simply don't work. (it also works well in slower water).
