White River Roamin

Monday Amy and I drove up to the White River to fish and camp. We fished Rim shoals on Monday and then fished the Wildcat access on Tuesday. The river had a pretty good flow to it. The air was crisp and boy did we have fun. I don't get up to the White as often as I should, but when I do I sure enjoy it. We caught a lot of fish on nymphs. I spent a little time throwing some big streamers on the bank but really couldn't get any one to commit to a big fly. It was probably one of my only shots at fall camping since our season down here is about to get silly busy. Life is good.

Dry Run Creek

Hey folks, sorry for the pause in blogging. Life has been busy here in the Ozarks. Last Friday fellow guide Tony Simmons and myself took a group of kids up to Dry Run Creek. Dry Run is a amazing little creek that dumps into the Norfork right at the dam. It a magical place and has been for a long time. It's where I learned to trout fish with my father as just a child. This creek is for kids 16 and under, and is also handicap accessible. The kids had a lot of fun and caught some nice fish. We even got into some good fish on dries! If you have kids and you want them to truly experience the most amazing place, then you should get in touch with me and I'll hook you up!

Big Blitz, Big Fish!

This morning Amy and I set out again in search of some big Hybrids. We had a bit of an overcast sky, which usually helps the fishing. It didn't take us long to get into a school of feeding fish. It was on like Donkey Kong! We were both catching fish left and right! Among the Hybrids and White's we caught a couple Large Mouth in the mix too! Again, we had these fish all to ourselves today. We saw several other boats chasing fish but no one seemed to be getting into any action like we did! I'm not sure how many fish we caught this morning but well over 20.. maybe 25. The last fish of the day had taken me to my backing twice on a 7 weight. On the final run he broke me off. I never got a look at him, but to break 16 pound line he had to be big! It just keeps getting better...If I were you I wouldn't miss out on this action. Come get it while the getting is good!

Its Hybrid Time

Trout fishing isn't the only thing that's hot right now. The Hybrids on the lake are schooling shad and feeding hard. Its an awesome experience. If you've never seen acres of a lake erupting with feeding hybrid bass then you're missing out. We are catching these fish on the surface and its a blast. This morning, I took Amy out for a couple of hours. It was a beautiful sunrise. A cool breeze was in the air. We checked a few spots only to see nothing but a few boats sitting around waiting on fish. We continued our search and finally came up on a big school. It didn't take long to have FISH ON!. It was a great time and I'm ready to get into some more of the action as it will only get better and better! If you want to get in on some of this action, I can hook you up! Give me a shout before it all gets booked up!

Just a few FYI's

Hey yall, I just wanted to update everyone on a few things. One being that the Little Red River cleanup is this weekend. Trash bin's will be at Lobo, Dripping Springs, and The Ozark Angler store. There will also be a cook out going on at the Angler's parking lot. Everyone should be here to help keep our river clean. The second thing I want to remind you guys of is that the Fall is booking up super quick! I still have some great dates in Oct. and December. It looks as if we are going to have low water for the fall, so if you want to get in on the action, get in touch with us Soon!

Mike and Fox

Mike and Fox had so much fun on Saturday they fished with me again on Monday. After a long weekend of shell shocked fish, the bite was tough.... We got into a few fish here and there early but as the morning went on Mike finally starting digging into them pretty good. Fox had several hook ups and lost a few but soon landed one. Mike caught this nice little brownie early and it was certainly the highlight of the day.


Friday Morning was the start to what is known around these parts as a COLE-A-THON. A great client of mine Roger, has his family and friends up and we go chasing trout several times a year. This year Jamie and I both took groups out. Roger and Tip fished with me Friday morning and they absolutely crushed them! They caught and released 50 fish by noon!

Saturday morning I took out Fox and his dad, Mike. Fox is in the third grade and he wore them out! Mike did well too, but Fox had them dialed in for sure! The bite was consistent and everybody had fun! That afternoon, I took Tip Cole and Brad. Brad had never held a fly rod before and caught on quick! As the afternoon progressed more and more, traffic got on the water and our bite slowed down but we still boated some good rainbows!

Saturday morning I took Andrew and Lauren fishing. Neither of them had ever done any real fly fishing. Lauren caught the first fish and was fired up about it! She caught a few more and then just sat back and enjoyed the surroundings. Andrew on the other hand was hooked! He caught on quick and was catching fish left and right!

Saturday afternoon I took Ed and Billy Patterson. Ed fished with me last year for about two hours when we had two generators on full bore. It was tough fishing. This year he killed em'. He probably caught 15 or so nice rainbows! It was Billy's first time to fly fish for trout. He had a few spinning rod habits we had to break but once he got dialed in,he caught some nice fish as well. The weekend was alot of fun for everyone. The fishing was good. The food Roger and Tip grilled was awesome! The weather was even better... Life is good on the Little Red River!
