So I have been fishing Denton Creek a lot (the section that comes from the dam). It is packed with Buffalo, but they seem to have a hard time seeing my fly. I have had some success in the past, but it seems to be quite sporadic. I have tried Zug Bugs, various Carp flies, San Juan Worms, and several other nymphs. I will put the fly right in their face but they don't aggressively attack it as much as Carp seem to do, or even eat it at all. Is it my presentation, fly, or something else? Has anyone else had a problem like this before? They just seem to be completely blind sometimes!

Welcome to Buffalo fishing. Unless they are tailing they are almost impossible to catch in my experience. I have had the best luck with a pretty small fly (probably size 14). They seem to just use their ventral sucker mouth to pick up vegetation and other organic matter from the bottom of the lake, not really attacking any kind of prey. Sometimes scent helps, I have used crayfish sent which works sometimes. They are a blast to catch if you can catch them.

I've sight casted to them about a million times and have only ever gotten one that way. I've caught a few others randomly, but not many. In six years maybe six buffalo total. I'm pretty much of the opinion that they don't like anything, until they do. Once.
