Guiding on the Tully

The 2011 trout season is in full swing! With the water finally dropping back to normal levels and good bug activity, the fishing has been pretty good the past week. The high skies have been keeping the fish off of the surface, so nymphing is still the most productive method. However, you can find fish feeding on caddis and midges on the surface in shaded areas, early morning and late evenings.

This week I had 2 trips on the Tully; the 1st one being with Jay Bown and his son John Bown. The water had just come down the night before and the fish were hungry. The sun was out and we were the only ones on the water.

The second trip was with Brooke Dolan and David Lee; we hit the stream early to beat the sun. Staying in the shade most of the day, they had a great time hooking into a few fish each. Brooke landed 2 very nice rainbows, while David had all browns.

Hot Flies for the day included the past 2 Featured flies, The Sugar Daddy and the Z-Wing Caddis.
