Weather played a big role in the fishing since the last post; never the less, the waters are still fishing good. Head hunting on Fall River has paid off big, with the best day for drys being the day that the snow was coming down so hard you could hardly see the fly! There have been a number of fish taken in the 19- to 20- inch range using a dark olive body dunn tied with a black or purple wing. They tend to show up better on gray days when tied that way. Hat Creek has been doing well fishing below the 299 bridge. The bug of choice has been a stonefly dry with a bird nest dropper. During the last two trips down there we took a good number of fish. It won’t be long before they move, but at this time it is worth a try. I have also been fishing a small creek east of Fall River, and it is doing very well – lots of eager fish up to 16 inches! Right now the creeks aren’t being hit too hard, so give them a try…this is their time of year to shine. In the next blog, I will reveal my anorexic A.P that works like a champ on the Pit River!
