Local Trout Update
Posted On: August 19, 2015 BY Delamere
Got out with my buddy Lou a few days ago to do a trout float. Turned out to be one heck of a day.
|26″ Jumbo Brown
We put a beating on the big boys and girls. The star fish of the day were 21″, 24″, 25″, and a 26″…. unreal. When targeting the big fish make sure to use heavy tippet because there will likely be logs around and they pull HARD. The 26″ put the largest bend into my 5 weight Radian I have ever had.. even stronger than a 12+ striper.
We were fishing 6wts for streamers and 5wts with our nymph rigs. 0X-2X fluoro tippets were a must. Larger nymphs like stones, caddis, and worm patterns produced well.
