Three Ways to Fish Streamers on Large Rivers Blog- Murray’s Fly Shop
When Ray Hurley, my Yellowstone River Guide of 17 years, and I fished the Yellowstone, he encouraged fishing streamers in order to catch large trout. Here are our most effective tactics: (1) When we are floating the river with Ray, with the oars of his Hyde Drift Boat, he had me pound the banks with a Sculpin Streamer. When we beached the boat (2) Ray fished the heads of the pools with a Sculpin Streamer and (3) I fished the tails of the pools with a Sculpin Streamer.
With snow in the forecast and tomorrow’s high of 35 degrees, our smallmouth bass fly fishing might be coming to an end. It seems that the extra water from Wednesday’s rain slowed the fish on the North Fork of the Shenandoah a bit more than last week. We landed two fish in three hours and needed a Hi-D Head to achieve success. The water temperature was 48 degrees. However, we are enjoying our new Hyde Rocky Mountain Skiff more and more!!
