Hello all and thanks for checking in at the O’Grady Fly Fishing Adventures. Well Cat had a bug class today so when Cody called and asked if I would float the tail water with him, it was a no-brainer. If you are not aware, the Drift fly shop is now permitted to float the tailwater and a few out of the way gems that go through private water. Cody and Pat have been out doing a ton of research to get everything completely dialed in and today was one of the final test drives.
We got on the river at around noon and the water had a little extra gunk in it. The float between Juniper Bridge and the Nature Center can be done in anywhere between three and six hours. Today we took our time and anchored pretty much everywhere we wanted to fish. We hooked lots of fish today but as you can see from the video our landing was a tad bit on the lame side. I’d love to say that that was a problem but while sitting in the boat with your senses picking up everything around you, I didn’t care a bit. It was great to see so many of our locals as we were floating by. Todays trip went just about five and a half hours and I can’t wait to get invited again.
Like I said before, the Drift is currently permitted to float the tail water and you won’t be disappointed. The private stretches currently are only offered in full day trips but a day without people would be great. As always, Connell, Cat, Winston, Cody and the Drift Fly Shop want to thank you for reading….
