My eight month pregnant wife was craving fresh fish so she asked that to go and fetch her some fish. Not wanting to upet her, I succumbed to her request and took the day off work and went to Scofield in pursuit of some large, succulent rainbows in my float tube. I did OK, but I was expecting it to be better. I started at 7:15 a.m. and boated 14 fish on six different flies by 10:00. It had all but died down by then. I caught one that was just shy of 19", the rest were dinks between 13" and 16". I kept a total of four fish to please the wife. All were rainbows with the exception of one cutt. No tigers today, I was a little surprised. Here are a couple that I caught.



This is what I found when I cleaned out the big bow.



Here is a close up of the fish food. Can you guess what fly (color and type) I caught it on?

I know it may be blasphemy :twisted: , but if you want to use an actual crawdad instead of a fly, they are all over the shoreline just under little rocks. My kids caught about 30 today. I floated one under a bobber to see what would happen. Got a couple of hits, but no hook up. Did have one really cool strike as I was reeling it in. Almost looked like a bass trying to hit it on a fast retrieve.

Also fished the Price below the dam for a while. Had both browns and whitefish hit on egg patterns.

Stopped at Spanish Oaks on the way home and the kids caught a lot of litte stocker on rainbow power bait. I threw a black wooley with some copper in it and had a lot of strikes and fish following it in. My wife caught one on a brass blue fox. Great place for the kids, packed with fish right now and not a lot of people.
