The trout fishing continues to be good on the Lower Mountain Fork River, reports Stratford fly fisherman Donny Carter, who fishes there frequently.
His latest trip was Wednesday and reports another fantastic time.
“I mainly fished the Evening Hole and caught fish on dries, woolly buggers, and nymphs. The trout were very active. You could see trout rising even during the heat of the day.”
Carter said only a few other fishermen were on the river that day and the campground was nearly empty.
“The new area created by the wildlife department after the flood was really producing. Caught trout there on dries and wets.
“In the ‘Bluffs’ area, trout seemed to rise all day long. This area is just above the Evening Hole. Great water.
“The only area that seemed to be slow to me was Spillway. The highlight on that water was catching the browns.
“Caught them on dries. Late that evening, the Bluff area was on fire with rising trout. Unreal fishing. No, the trout were not large, but it was dryfly fishing at it’s finest. I fished there ’til it got dark. Couldn’t see the trout, but could easily hear their splashy rises.”
