Friday Foto Fishing Report 4.19.19
I liked the Yes and No format earlier this week. It fits my rapid posting early morning style, and needs. So here we head into another Montana Weekend in downtown Craig. Love to see you!
Yes: Brown and gold streamers like the Kreelex. Or Sparkle Minow. Or olive flavored. Those are patterns that fish have been enjoying.
Yes: Deep. Get those streamers and swinging flies near the bottom. Or deeper in the lane. T-8 is the ticket. Intermediate tips or better for the streamer gang. Fish are coming off of the banks for the streamer fly. Hit and miss, but enough to keep you interested. Also Brown or Olive Skiddish Smolt has been a producer.
No: Fast and Sexy looking banks. Not good for nymphing. But some fish have been lured from them on the strip.
Deep: Nymphs need to be deep and in the slot. Find it. Fish it. Live it. Test on Monday.
Dry Fly Fellers: Not yet. Have not seen the first BWO yet. But it is in the near future. A few Skwalas, occasionally lots of midge. Not much to look at on the surface. Really too high for daily success. Keep dreaming. The dry fly days are coming…in May.
Split Shot: B or BB. Or better. Deep man.
Headhunters Fly Shop: Your source for new fly lines. Spring is the time for new fly lines. Get one today from the largest fly line catalog on the river. Streamer lines galore. Streamer galore. Nymph lines. Our staff is knowledgeable and ready to help.
Yes: Izaak’s open 4-9.
No: Trout Shop Cafe not open.
No: Taco Shack not open.
Spring Special: Only 11 days left. $400 Guide Trips.
Maps and Info: Headhunters is your source for free maps, information, rigging suggestions, where to go, how to do it, and always free coffee.
Have a great weekend. Plan your Headhunters and Missouri River summer or fall trip today. Get it on the books. Call our crack booking staff for questions on rental properties, best times to fish, and current river conditions. We love to chat about trout!
