We're catching big fish....

Check out this new YouTube video of the last few weeks with the Jamie Rouse Fly Fishing team.

Portera Action!

Wednesday and Thursday I had the pleasure of fishing with Greg and Will. They fished with me last summer and fell in love with it..The day and a half of fishing we had was nothing short of pure magic...On Wednesday, we hooked some amazing trout...Lost some amazing trout and had nothing but pure fun. On Thursday, we got revenge on a pig rainbow that taunted us all day the day before...and landed a two footer in a torrential rain storm! It was some of the most fun I have had in a while...Great times are being had on the Little Red River...If your not here for the month of December....You need to be!

KB and Farns

Last Tuesday I took KB and the Farns out for a little brown trout beat down...We walked into a stretch of water that really has only been hit by the residents as of late due to the low water and it was out of control on fire! There was several times during the day when as soon as I was letting a 20 plus in fish go another one was on the line!! It was nice to be on foot all day and catching big trout...We had the shoal to ourselves all morning and only had to share with two other people after lunch..It doesn't get any better than this!

Norm and Jason

Today I took Jason and Norm...These dude's love to fish. I take them every year a few times and it just keeps getting better...Today was lights out for the boys...Both guys caught their biggest brown trout to date...That's what they came for and that's what they got! We sight casted to some absolute monsters and we lost a couple monsters as well. All around we couldn't have asked for a better day on the water! When you get down to the brass tacks of it all the boys killed it today...

Farns part Duece

Yesterday Jamie and I ran a group trip and took Robert, Allen, and Mike. We took the boys out wading. We clobbered some nice fish, but it seemed as if Allen really found the groove for the big browns...As the day went on everyone got into lots of fish..We ate fried chicken on the shore and had a blast...Later in the afternoon some small BWO's came off and we got into some more technical fishing and picked on some willing rainbows...Here is a pic of Jamie and Allen with one of his nice browns.

Farns and Ricky

Day 6 with no generation...The river is dead low...I had a good client of mine Robert, and a client of his, Ricky from Louisiana fishing with me today. We walked in at a place I have private access to and our fist fish was this two foot brown...We caught several other browns before we ever saw a rainbow...We dug our heels in wading around until noon and then decided to go down river and do some drifting. Farnsworth caught this pig rainbow on his first drift! Fishing today was all around stellar...

Big John and The Boys

Today I ran a group trip with fellow guide Tony. We took Big John, Bill, David, and Mike. We took them wade fishing and killed it! Fishing was good. We caught tons of rainbows and several really nice brownie's. We had to work pretty hard for them but it was all well worth it..We enjoyed some fried chicken on the shore and had good times!

Ron and Jerry

Last night was the first night in a week that the Corps ran water...It was awesome to fish the river today with some water in it. Jerry and Ron absolutely killed it! It was like gang buster's! It was Ron's 3rd time to ever hold a fly rod and he probably caught around 40 fish! Jerry punished them hard too, with probably 50 fish caught! I can't tell you how many times we had doubles today!! Toward the end of the day we decided to chase after a bigger fish and ended up with this beauty!

Ole Bill

Yesterday I took an old family friend fishing...Bill Hendrix. I have known Bill forever and been fishing with him many times. It was my first time to guide him though. We crushed them. We started off fishing some of the deep slower water and beat on them pretty hard. After lunch we put the boat on the trailer and went down river a ways. We spent the afternoon wading and it was fantastic. Bill caught lots of fish..and lost a few fish... Towards the end of the day the fish keyed in on midges and we dropped down to 6x and size 18 midges. It was an awesome day to be on the Little Red River catching trout with an old friend.

Today I took Harlan out for a little adventure...He wanted to pursue a big brown so we chased them Hard...We moved to several different sections of the river and caught several nice fish. We caught 4 browns all around 17 inches and lost one over 20... In the mix we caught a lot of willing rainbows. Today was the first time in a few days I have seen some nicer browns moving around in the shoals. The water is low folks so watch your step and leave the spawning fish alone please!!
