Anyone been lately?

I am thinking about heading up that way on New Years Day.

It is actually the same distance mile wise as the Caney for me but a half hour longer. With all the water flowing elsewhere that may be the only place I can get in some fishing.

I just went up there for Christmas.  I had intended to spend a couple days on the lake and a couple days on the Obey, but the whole trip was pretty much a disaster - way too long of a story to go into here.  Anyway, setting aside that long story, I got an hour or two of wading in on Christmas Day and then four hours floating the day after (before the boat broke down - but like I said, long story).

Regardless, I wish I could have fished more, but it was quite good for the time I fished.  Near the dam it was mostly dinks, but once I got downriver a couple miles I found some decent rainbows in the 15-17 inch range.

Best results were on the standard midge stuff - thread midges and zebras fished about a foot under an indicator.  I'd just cruise along until I found a group of rising fish, and then I'd stop and land the midge in the middle of the rise rings.  Sometimes I'd have to sit for a minute or two, but sooner or later one would grab it every time.  I tried some streamer stuff but not much results there.

Anyway, the fishing ought to be worth the drive - good luck and let us know how you do.

Thanks Brian for the heads on what they are eating.

I am hoping to catch some fish and break in my 6wt that my uncle got for me.

The Obey is more of a 4wt river.  :)
