Author Topic: nicomekyl river october 12

went out early morning around 184th. took this female hatch around 9:00 this morning on pink roe. lots of jumpers some of them "good for smoker" quality. beware: lots of roe snatchers on the bottom.

Awesome catch! Did you use a float or just drift fished the roe?

no weight or float. did not notice a tug as it ate the roe and just sat there. when i reeled in line to check the roe then it tugged. again....lots of roe snatchers so bring plenty.

How did you fish then? You used roe but without a float or weight?

thats right. no float no weight 12lb test. let the current do the work.

so all you did was cast a hook with some roe?

he answered his question!

lol, sorry guys, that's the first time I have ever heard of that kind of fishing method, I always use a float but I guess you don't have to. I live close to the river but have never tried it.

Use a fly rod with roe or a big dewy and just let it drift ..

bait on a flyrod? not something i would do...bait is for gear..flies are for flyrods..tie up some bait looking flies..easy to tie up some worms and Ive tied up some roe looking flies as well

not putting it down at all..just said not something i would do..I couldnt care less how others fish..just never heard of using bait on the flyrod.
please dont read any of my comments as critisism as its quite not each their own.

curious, do you use the spawn nets around the roe? or just roe straight on to an egg/bait loop?

fly rods are not just meant for flys ,try it some time also i put small lures or spinners on my fly rods and troll around on some of my fav lakes.this bad boy was caught on a lure on my fly rod ,just shy of 8 pounds
