Owyhee Fishing Report (5-1)
Owyhee River Report (5-1)
The good news was every fish that poked its head above the water whether he was close to the edge or in mid river and I saw him, I caught that fish on a small caddis. The bad news was there were few fish that poked their heads up. When there were no targets to shoot a fly at, trying to lure the fish to the surface was tough. I had fished last Saturday and had a pretty fun day skating a caddis and catching good numbers and size of fish. Skating the fly yesterday only produced 2 fish, and they were not the large variety.
The caddis hatches are coming on, but the fish haven’t begun keying on them at the surface in large numbers. There will be a day coming soon when you arrive at the river and there will be targets all over the surface. I predict that day will come after this little cold spell and the temperature jumps back up to the 70’s and 80’s.
Anyway, it wasn’t a bad day on the river. I got started late and still caught 16 fish. There were some pretty big fish in the mix.
Flies that caught fish:
1) Emperor Caddis Green #20
2) Adams Caddis Peacock #14 (Skater)
3) Bare Belly Caddis Green #20 & #18
4) Peacock Caddis #20 (Tester Fly)
