Lower Mountain Fork Beaver’s Bend Fishing Report from Rob Woodruff

| February 7, 2010 | 2 Comments

As you know, our nearest decent trout fix is at the Lower Mountain Fork in Southeastern Oklahoma. The weather should be near perfect for a redeye there this week, so read it and ready your rod.

Spillway Creek– Has fished strong all winter and trout are spread throughout all sections of the creek.
Best flies- Sowbugs, Beadhead Pheasant Tails and Hare’s Ears, as always, presentation trumps pattern on Spillway.

Evening Hole and Bluff Hole– Blue Winged Olives continue to hatch most days and small nymphs are working when they aren’t.
Best flies-Sz. 18 Flashback Olive Hare’s Ear, Zebra Midges, Sowbugs and Sz. 18 BWO Emergers and BWO Comparaduns.

Zone 2– March Brown Mayflies are starting to hatch. The field trip for my Entomology for Fly Fishers class on January 31 showed plenty of mature nymphs ready to emerge, so there should be plenty dry fly action in the next few weeks.
Best flies-Sz. 12 March Brown dries, Sz. 12 Pheasant Tail Soft Hackles and small white streamers.

A recent post with sweet photography from Dusty Montgomeryis available if you would like to read more. Since the floods last year, it is pretty much agreed that there is less pressure at Beaver’s Bend, and the fish are also benefitting from the lighter pressure. That is one reason you will find Dusty’s photographs so interesting – the fish look so unusually good for Lower Mountain Fork.
