Beautiful on the Spring River
The river is low and clear and looking great. The leaves are just starting to change. This week the first half of the day has been tough fishing and plenty of rainbows after lunch. Fall break has a lot of fishers out this week. Nice to see so many fly fishers on the water.
The trout have been fickle on the bite. A y2k with nymph dropper or orange blossom special have been go to flies lately, but on Wednesday afternoon a size 14 burnt olive woolly bugger caught on of the boggest walleye we have ever landed on the fly. I missed the brute on the first pass and by the time I finally netted the bog thing, I was dang near hyperventilating.... I get way to excited on big fish. It is so hard to catch a walleye on the river, even though it is full of walleye. They just dont strike much with all of the tasty trout in the river.
I am sorry for missing calls. I cant answer while guiding and have a poor signal most days. Please text or email me for bookings or any info that may be needed. I wanted to let everyone know on agfc.com/resources/maps a great map of all of the stocking and access locations can be found. Must have for the river.
