Fly Fishing Report: Switch and Spey Clinic

April 16, 2014
Author: Will Rice

Saturday was our first Intermediate Clinic of the 2014 season and focused on switch and spey casting techniques for both Colorado trout and salmon or steelhead for the traveling angler. The Lower Blue is flowing at a higher-than-average level and this created the perfect scenario for switch rods.  The weather was warm with some clouds and the river flows 710 CFS with off color clarity.

Gooned At The Lagoon: Part II

Mosquito Lagoon just a the sun begins to rise

When we left the dock at 5:30am it was dark out – pitch black.  My guide, Captain John Turcot had approached from the south of Mosquito Lagoon and I could hear the whine of his Hell’s Bay skiff for a good two minutes before he reached me.  As I watched him approach under the stars I could see that he held a hand torch to navigate the small creeks and cuts that riddle this inland waterway.  We were getting a “O’Dark Thirty” start to chase redfish.

Trouts Fly Fishing is happy to announce the successful kick off of our 2014 Fly Fishing Education Curriculum.  On Saturday March 29th we had our inaugural On-Stream Beginner Fly Fishing School where we were able to introduce the sport of fly fishing to a new group of students.

The flows on the main stem of the South Platte River were right around 125 CFS and the water clarity was excellent.  With clear water and temperatures right in the mid 50s it was classic springtime conditions here in Colorado.

Andros South Lodge Fly Fishing Report

My eyes had to adjust to what I was looking at.  I hadn’t seen anything like it in almost 10 years.  The large mass of grey/brown color could easily be mistaken for a patch of Caribbean turtle grass or coral… but it wasn’t turtle grass or coral.  It was a massive school of Bahamian bonefish. 

“You see how those fish are starting to move to the left,” said Sparkles, our guide from the Andros South Lodge.  “Show me the cast – eleven o’clock… 50 ft.  Make the cast.”

Lucas was on the front of the boat and did as he was told – he didn’t say a word.

I wanted to drop a quick note to the Trouts Contingent and deliver this preliminary fishing report from the Andros South Lodge.  We left for the Bahamas on Friday evening, flying from Denver to Charlotte on a red eye.  From there, we flew south to Nassau and connected with a puddle jumper over to Congo Town.  After arriving at the Andros South Lodge, our team of seven clients were ready to get after it.
