Nocturnal Trout Slam

Last night I had another excellent after dark fishing excursion. The Salmon is low and particularly tricky to fish during the day. I is certainly possible to catch fish during the day, but I'd rather be there when the air is cool and the feeding is indiscriminate and aggressive. I got all three species to come out last night, though I didn't get any particularly large fish one brooky was pretty good though).

Flies that worked were a black leech, a white leech, a Muddler, and the Waller Waker. I think I'm going to try a flew big Chernobyl Ants on my next night outing, they tend to be productive at dusk and I'm sure fish will take them in the dark.

  1. Really nice bunch of fish. I imagine the chernobyl ant would be a good call, they work well for me targeting brookies at dusk.

  2. Nice!!! The river does look low, but that's good for night fishing. Do you where a head lamp at night?
    Tie, fish, write and photo on...

      Prolonged lights scare the fish. I tie new flies on by holding them up to the light of the moon.
