Don't let the cloudy water fool you ! The fish are there! Fish a large orange or pastel colored sucker spawn fly with enough weight to keep it near the bottom and you will catch fish. Watch for the line to stop and then raise your rod. More often than you think a fish will pick it up and never move from its holding spot in the stream. Fish the edges of current and tails of pools. Use some scent on the fly such as spawn scent or anise oil. |
Muddy water sometimes is the best fishing! I know many will say I'm crazy but trust me the fish can be caught easily in during muddy conditions if the right technique is used.
