Lees Ferry Fishing Report 5/29/18

The bug flows are still providing great weekend fly fishing activity, as midge activity has definitely benefited from the low, constant weekend flows. The good news is that weekend spin fishing was also very good this weekend!

The low weekend flows has opened more bars to wade fishing and dry/dropper and double midge rigs are producing well. Zebra midges in silver and copper, x midge, laser midge, are all producing well. If a midge pattern isn’t producing or if the hit rate stalls, changing flies will often trigger new takes. Dry flies used above a trailing midge also produce the occasional strike. Try Stimulators, Royal Wulffs, Humpies. I saw grasshoppers on shore in several areas and will try using those this week. Stay tuned! Also, as we move into June, expect the cicada activity to start mid-month.

Spin fisherman also did well this weekend, as fish were hitting on rubber worms and marabou jigs bounced off the bottom!

Lots of happy, hungry fish make for happy fishermen!

Tight lines,
