COAF Field Team Updates February 10, 2020 #livestream

Updates from this weekend’s fishing fun! Had lots of fun this past weekend fishing for trout at Frisco Commons!

It’s Monday, February 10

  • Updates from this past week
  • Frisco trout stocking happened
  • Lots of people limited out

Saturday was sunny. Go to lure, bait, and flies…

  • Lures – Super Duper, Rooster Tail, Kast Master
  • PowerBaits – Trout Bait and PowerWorms
  • Fishing Flies – Dry Flies, Near Deare, OWB, RBW
  • Bubble Fly Rig Variant – replace with Kastmaster and trailing fly

Sunday was a misty morning , then a rainy day. Go to fishing flies…

  • Olive Near Deere no indicator – short pulls, steady retrieve worked well initially. Later, a 6 count pause to let the fly sink, followed by long pulls and pauses
  • Dry Flies – do match the hatch, pattern less important than size and color
  • Like to have a Griffiths Gnat sz 18 as a backup
  • 5PM Hatch! Keep an eye out for it!

Gear Notes

  • MaxCatch 2wt 10ft Fly Rod
  • Echo Ion 2/3 Wt Fly Reel
  • Rio Trout Max Shooting Head – Rio Trout Max #2 in 200 grain
  • OPST Lazar Line 30 lbs Test
  • Lesson Learned: Fly Rod works well with the Trout Max but Lazar Line tends to slip under spool. Switched line to Hydros SL1 Fly Reel. No line slippage.

Reminder

  • Giveaway Wednesday 2/12/2020 at 8PM Central.
