September 29TH Double R Fishing Report
Monday, September 29, 2014:
Today’s fishing on the Double R Ranch was a mixed bag, in that one’s success depended upon where and when you fished. A buddy and I fished the field water between 10:00 a.m. and Noon, encountering a few Mahogany Duns and a few Baetis. We each had strikes on dry imitations for both insects. I “matched” the #18 Baetis with a #20 green bodied female Trico No Hackle. After lunch my buddy fished The Pond for an hour and had several strikes on a small olive bodied parachute. For about 2 hours he fished from the gazebo bridge back down to my trailer and encountered a good hatch of, all things, Callibaetis duns and landed a half dozen fish. Just goes to show you that one has to be observant and willing to wait out the rain and the breeze. What tomorrow brings is anyone’s guess. Look for the hatches to stabilize and become more reliable as the weather improves starting on Wednesday.
