Droping water

Buffalo River - Freshwater Fishing Report

Subject: Don Schnable...White River,Buffalo River,Crooked Creek




White River


There has been wadable water in the mornings and heavy generation in the afternoons. The hot spot has been Roundhouse Shoals. The best time to fish is early morning or late in the afternoon. The hot flies were prince nymphs, zebra midges (black with silver wire and silver bead or red with silver wire and silver bead), pheasant tails, copper Johns, pink and cerise San Juan worms, gold ribbed hare's ears and sowbugs. Double fly nymph rigs have been very effective. Try a small bead headed nymph (zebra midge, copper John or pheasant tail) suspended 18 inches below a brightly colored San Juan worm (hot fluorescent pink or cerise). On the higher flows some anglers have been fishing large, articulated streamers with heavy sink tip lines. Hopper season is in full swing. These are tempting morsels for large trout. Western style foam hoppers with rubber legs and a bright quick sight patch on the back are working well. Dave's hoppers are also a good choice but be sure to dress them with plenty of fly floatant to ensure that they ride high. A small nymph dropper can increase your takes.

Buffalo River & Crooked Creek

Crooked Creek and the Buffalo River are navigable and both are receiving a lot of pressure. With summer here, the smallmouths are active. The most effective fly has been a tan and brown Clouser minnow. Carefully check the water level before entering Crooked Creek or the Buffalo River. They are prone to flooding during and following any rain event. The water can rise very quickly.
