Tuesday’s on My Mind – Blue on Black Plus More on OK Leaves

| November 21, 2017

BLUE RIVER VIDEO LAST SEASON

Happy Holiday week to those of you with actual days off this week! Funny, in this abusive work Country, the bossman can call it a holiday, and then not pay traditional double-time for working the day. It seems that when it comes to humane treatment, “traditional” kindness is out the window these days, doesn’t it? In case you are wondering, there are no laws requiring holiday pay in the good old red-white and blue.

The weather seems to have finally forced our hand into the cold water fly fishing days here in North Texas. For those of you elsewhere? Feel free to laugh at us as we wait for our cars to warm up, double check we have our layers of clothing packed, put it in gear and head for the OK State. The only game in town isn’t, and the game is underway.

If you read the digital tea leaves, you may be getting wind of a couple of things that are taking shape in the Southern Oklahoma scene.

1 – Beaver’s Bend is still suffering with the new version of the LMF. TIP – I hear the browns are concentrated in upper spillway’s deepest pools. That should be pretty clearly doable. Problem is; that leads to merciless pounding of these fish, until finally they are cleaned out or too wise. I would be tempted to throw big meaty flies, but then that’s no original thought either.

2 – It looks like the Blue River is receiving exceptional numbers of stockers, and with great consistency. Unfortunately, just about everybody that fishes these two places reads. You can expect more people at the Blue River than you are used to, perhaps more than ever were there in the past.

I am looking to do the Blue on Black this Friday, and hoping the leaves have fallen, I can find the wind favorable, and fish biting. If you are interested in the Blue River, Friday would be a good day. You are welcome to contact me, and we can figure out the logistics of a Texas Invasion of the Blue River this Friday morning.
