E-Quicky Report #16

We're still waiting for really consistent and predictable fishing action; on/in the surface film or below. Conditions are very fishable. It is a matter of time and that time is imminent.

MAY 24---"Well we’re still waiting for the consistent surface action on both the BT and LT. Best method remains sub-surface dredging with or w/o indicators. Dry/dropper “searching” has resulted in a few takes, but nothing of bragging size. Water temps on the BT yesterday were 57-59 along Glenshire; figure a tick or two lower below the reservoir inflows. Big water below Boca inflow in the low 700 cfs; above in the low 300’s to mid-100’s depending how high up along route 89.

 Haven’t seen any more Fly Black Carpenter Ants; they were present a couple of days last week. Now were on the look-out/watch for adult Golden Stones and Green Drakes. Seining indicates they are present and maturing….so soon. Seeing  small adult crane flies, sporadic PMD’s, Spotted and Green Rock Worm caddis. I’m getting a bit anxious, I want surface targets."

 MAY 27---"I am strictly a wading guide and do not operate in Nevada.  As of today there has not been any consistent dry fly angling. If so, skills are required because the few risers have been finicky."

MAY 28---"Yeah, it still remains slow on both the BT and LT. Essentially there has to be more bug activity on both waters. I’d like  to see a slow ramp-down in cfs on the LT. On the BT, flows are fishable (exceptionally low for this time of year) and the water temps are into the high 50’s. I have a challenge getting people into fish tomorrow and Friday."  

MAY 29---"There are some bugs on both the BT and LT, but few if any showing fish. The LT is already getting crowded.  Sub-surface remains the best for both waters thus far. We’re all waiting for the dry fly fishing to commence. You’ll see small caddis and a scattering of PMD’s, craneflies…I personally have not seen any Golden Stone adults. If I were you I’d explore the BT from the Boca inflow upstream; too much water below. The key is to “stick & move”; fishing quickly and methodically “searching the water”,  looking for an opportunistic feeder."

MAY 30----“…today we had the most success to date of raising fish to the surface while “searching the water” with dry/dropper rigs…pocket water best results…still not a lot of adult aquatics but steadily increasing in numbers…haven’t seen the ants for over a week…awaiting the Green Drakes and Golden Stonefly adults.”
