June 5 Double R Report

Wednesday, June 4, 2014:

The Pale Morning Dun hatch was sparse and came off a bit later this morning, but fish were nevertheless taking large dry imitations here and there.  Some Members fished into the late afternoon.  The occasional Callibaetis spinner has been sighted by several anglers.  Early morning there was a flight of BWO spinners, about a size 16.  Your Stream Keeper landed a 17 inch Brown on his #14 PMD CDC Winged parachute.

The Pond continues to fish well . . . . subsurface. 

Brown Drakes continue to hatch downstream of the Highway 20 bridge.

In an effort to open more fishing water at the bottom end of the Ranch water, we have constructed a new access called Beat Zero, below the Beat 1 access and a bit downstream from Bud Purdy’s house.  To get there, drive down Highway 20 to the paved turnoff to Bud’s house and George Ormstrom’s house, then when you see the wooden sign pointing towards George’s house take that immediate left.  Go 0.3 miles on the gravel road until you come to a gate on your right (passing both houses and the metal bridge over the creek), pass through the gate and follow the track to the structure.   You can float from Beat 1 down to Beat Zero and exit, or you can float down further and get out immediately under the metal bridge on the right side.
