Another Winter trout stocking season is fast approaching! Like in past seasons, yours truly modified the schedule posted by TPWD to sort by Stocking Date and the count of trout stockings planned for a location and its estimated trout to be stocked.

Makes for ease of reference by allowing Readers to quickly see when the next trout stocking is planned. As changes are unexpected for various reasons like weather, do check for updates, changes, and corrections at TPWD's website - 2020-2021 TPWD Trout Stocking Schedule.

Fly Fishing Stop and Go Retrieve Demo #shorts

YouTube Shorts video that shows the retrieve we used when the trout stopped biting. We started with a strike indicator with a Pat's Near Deere set 3-4 feet from the indicator. Using a dead drift, the trout were readily striking that morning. But, as the day progressed, the trout stopped biting.

Trying different retrieves, finally found a Stop and Go Retrieve without a strike indicator worked. Trout wanted movement, striking the fishing fly as it hesitated on the stop.

Do check it out, and do check out the full video of the trip, too!

This round we answer the mail concerning suggestions for fishing the Blue River, Oklahoma...

Specifically, we talk about the walking stick, landing net and modifications to it, and then the fishing flies we used to get our first trout and first limit this season.

Plus we added snippets of the YouTube Shorts - Stop and Go Retrieve, that showed the Stop and Go Retrieve, as well as some recent pictures others posted of some nice trout caught on the Blue!

See the video of that trip... First Limit of the Season!

Check it out and keep the suggestions in mind next trip!

YouTube Shorts video of trout others caught since the Season opener on the Blue River in Ok, and what I caught yesterday. They did much better!

Does that river support trout all year or how do they get so big there?

It's a put and take fishery.

Blue River Fishing Tips | What Worked For Me This Round #blueriverok #oklahomatroutfishing

Hoped to catch one of the Bruiser trout that are stocked for the Trout Derby on the Blue River. Did not catch a Bruiser but still managed three that went 12" - 14" in size, making for a nice dinner!

After scouting the upriver from Hughes Crossing, went back to Hughes Crossing and fished just upriver of the low water crossing. Tried the same fishing fly and presentation as I did on an earlier trip.

Pattern this round...
Pat's Near Deere on dead drift with a twitch now and then as well as a Stop and Go Retrieve. Same applied to a Pat's Rubber Leg.

Fishing an Olive Near Deere and a Guadalupana, trout wanted a fast retrieve with rapid short pulls. While a Pink Near Deere was a no go!

Do check out the video!

Live stream update from the Team! Fished the Blue River in Oklahoma this morning. Caught two and kept for dinner, caught and released others but called the trip short when I gotta dunking this round.

Thought I broke my GoPro Hero 5 but after drying it out, it works again... lav mic and the battery was done for though. Did pick up a Hero 8 on sale at Best Buy... good excuse to get another camera.

Did stop at Scotty's One Stop and picked up Producers, White Pat's Rubber Legs, and a Midge that looked promising. This round the Producer and the White Pat's Rubber Leg and an olive one, too worked.

Key this round... dead drift, no movement... just keep the same speed as the bubbles! Do check back for the full video of today's trip.

Here is the follow-up video of Sunday's trip to the Blue...

Blue River Trout Fishing | Tried Some New Fishing Flies! #blueriverok

Yesterday's trip to the Blue River for another chance at Rainbow Trout. Plan was to stop at Scotty's One Stop to pick up some custom fishing flies - specifically, the Producer. And then, try fishing the low water crossing and the Catch and Release section.

Did get the Producer along with the Pat's Rubber Leg in white and a midge with an orange bead head. Also, did fish the low water crossing.

But, called the trip short when I fell in the river when my wading stick broke.  No worries! Still had a fun time.

PS: Replaced the wooden wading stick with an aluminum walking stick. Lightweight, packs easily, and was only $9.99 at Academy. Will post more on it later.

Suggestion from one of the Facebook Fishing Groups that I am a member. Broke my wooden wading stick that I had for years this past Sunday. Planned to get another stick floating in the river to replace it, and then it was suggested to use Walking Sticks also called Trekking Poles.

Picked this one up at Academy Sports for $9.99! Liking the lightweight aluminum and the telescoping/collapsible function. Moreover, pulled the rubber tip to screw on the mud guard on and noticed a "cleat" like tip already in place.

I think this suggestion will work; plan to use it this Season! More to come!

YouTube Shorts video of the Team fishing the Denison Dam on the Oklahoma side for Striped Bass. Working the video of the trip but here is a snippet of the action. Bite was slow but picked up later once our fishing partner noted the Stripers were lurking by the Oklahoma Wall.
