Fly Fishing Report October 19, 2018

 Ocotober 19, 2018

WOOOOO!!!wow The Fly fishing is going off right now. With the warm weather the fishing has really picked up.

The bite really does not happen until the water temp warms up a little or until the sun is over your head(10am-ish).

Fish are off the bottom a bit so being right on the bottom is not crucial. Since the lake has gone down a bit

there are no weeds but if you do happen to find some weeds then work the edges. The big trout are still on the prowl for

perch fry. a small red/black leech to a small perch fry is deadly at this time of year. Type 1-3 intermediate

line is recommended. The North arm is fishing really well. lot of boats and tubers in anywhere from 10-15ft.

Mcgee is also holding fish, right in and outside the channel....inlets.

ps- its all about the weather. keep an eye out for the warm days...

Location: Leighton Springs, Mcgee bay, North Arm, Sandy point

 Flies:  albino Barons, regurlar shaft, Shaft emergers, ap emerger, small leeches, small perch, the DK midge

I'm planning a trip up there Aug. 15th & 16th and was curios how the algae bloom is doing? I know it can be real bad late in the summer. So bad that you need to find open areas of water to drop your lures down through when trolling.
Another question about bard less hooks, can you just use pliers to roll the barb flat and can you still use trouble hooks with no barbs?

How do you, Crowley fish camp, expect us to drive for hours to fish Crowley when the latest fish report for trolling is July 30 ??? Can you give us something a little more current. I have a group of seven that would love to make the 6 hour drive, but we won't if the conditions and bite are horrible. Thanks in advance.

It's May 19, 2015. I'm looking at your last fishing report dated May 14! Would you please update more frequently. Fishing is fishing; I'm also very concerned about the water level and weather.
