In Topic: Fly fishing resident trout

03 September 2019 - 07:33 PM

I've had success with dries such as the pale morning and sulphur dun, as well as the blue wing olive patterns on the Credit in the Belfountain area.  Yesterday I caught 8 brook trout, three of them were 9 inches, but the remainder were between 7 - 8 inches. All were released :) and even though they were small, it was still a fun morning.


In Topic: Great day on the Grand, 2 tiny fish...

I feel your pain. Today I was out on the Saugeen, and didn't even get a strike. Yesterday, on the Credit, I caught 8 brook trout between 6 - 9 inches long (all released). I also started fly fishing this year, and have had a lot of success in terms of numbers, but the biggest fish I've caught have been a 12 inch brook and a 12 inch brown. I can't help thinking I'm doing something to spook the larger fish. 

 

I'd like to think that it's just the time of year, but I'm not convincing myself ;). Still, even though I was skunked today, it was a great day on a gorgeous river.
