    Fishing Reports

    Steelhead, Trout and Bonefish on the Brain

    Joel La Follette - Thursday, April 09, 2015
    The Clackamas and Sandy have continued to kick out a fish or two over the last week for anglers swinging flies. While some reports are better than others, there has been some good fishing on both rivers. Conditions remain good and there’s nothing in the forecast that should change that. Orange or red seem to be the hot colors this week.

    Trout fishing has been an up and down event depending on the weather. March Browns are still on the minds of anglers and fish in the valley and over on the Deschutes. The Metolius saw a spurt of big winter (think October) Caddis last week as well as the usual small Mayfly hatch. There was also a hatch of a larger Mayfly that remains unidentified as of yet. I’ll work on that, but I’m guessing perhaps an early Flav showing. I’m not an insect expert, so I’ll just ask Mr. Silvey next week when he come to enlighten us all about bugs. Speaking about big bugs, the Salmonfly hatch is on the minds and lips of anglers prowling the fly bins lately. We do have plenty of patterns in stock, but check out your personal collection and add to it sooner than later if needed.

    With very little snow in the higher elevations, early lake fishing opportunities should be very good. Water temps may be a bit chilly, but you won’t be dealing with iced over water. Start off the season by fishing the warmer edges and shoals for fish hunting a snack. If you have not done much lake fly fishing you may want to look into the classes offered by Rob and the guys at Water Time Outfitters. This is a great way to crack the code faster.

    Bonefishers did pretty well on the flats of Belize this past week, scoring plump Bonefish and even the occasional Permit. While down in the Bahamas Bonefish were the main target with a few big Cuda mixed in. Tarpon, Jacks and other critters are still looming near Blue Holes and drop offs. Larger Tarpon are moving into the Keys just in time for my brief overnight fishing adventure on May 1. I’ve unpacked one 10 wt. and added my trusty 12 wt. to my tackle bag of goodies I plan on flying with. Fishing for big fish in the dark with Hammerheads and reef sharks circling below sounds delightful. I can hardly wait.
