My buddy Nate and i hit the Blue River Sunday. Nate has a trip to Colorado coming up in a couple of weeks that will involve a day of trout fishing on the South Platte. So, we decided to make an "equipment test" run. I figured the day was way to pretty to do much good but at least Nate could get some practice tying knots, rigging up tandem flies and casting to current seams. We didn't keep count but we guessed that we landed about thirty between the two of us, including a nice fifteen inch fish on a size 20 Zebra midge. We also caught fish on size twelve olive and tan bead head hairs ears, size twelve and sixteen green brassies and one on a size 18 red brassie. Dont think the pattern made any difference. Just a good, drag free drift in the right place and you would get hit. I usually shy away from from bright, sunny days but we got lucky this day.

Awesome! Had a great time there Saturday...

Blue River Oklahoma Fishing | First Trout Limit for 2020-2021 Season!

Sidetracked with Trout from the local ponds.... Fun time fishing the Blue River in Oklahoma. Recently stocked with Rainbow Trout, made the run across the border from Texas to Oklahoma for a go at the trout. Olive Near Deere and Tandem Rigged flies seemed to get a strike or two... after yours truly shook off the missed strikes and hooksets. Good thing I got my mojo back and was able to get a limit to start the 2020-2021 trout stocking season. Longer than normal video but add footage exploring the area near Hughes Crossing and playing with the trout in the clear water by the Low Water Crossing. Do check it out! Hope to be back for more trout fishing fun on the Blue River!

Oh yeah, 7 hours maybe. It's a nice place, though. Great camping.
