Nymphs vs streamers

Wednesday, February 21st, 2007

As we approach the end of February a glimmer of sunshine brings new activity in the fish. Dead-drifted nymphs and streamers, deeply sunk and stripped, are doing the trick. Water remains high and powerful, but clear. Probably the best method is streamer fishing with leech or zonker patterns using a sink tip line.  Jeremy and I caught about 15 fish, with several others lost during two and a half hour.

First signs of spring…

Friday, February 16th, 2007

Weather gets better and better every day. Unfortunatelly the snow in the mountains starts melting with the lovely sunshine, which makes the water more coloured and the fish less active than few days ago. We have observed first signs of spring on the river bank! Waiting for the water to clear we must drink a glass of cold vodka for our teammate Maciek’s newborn child! Na zdrowie!

Trout beginings

Sunday, February 11th, 2007

The overflows have finally been closed and the water has cleared. Although the river remains high (two turbines), the trout season slowly starts and the first good results have come in. If the weather gets better we can expect excellent fishing soon. Take a fast sinking line with you and some streamers!

Something's wrong

Monday, January 8th, 2007

The weather has gone mad – temperatures from 10-15 degrees during day, not even a small cold at night. That is at least 20 degrees too much for this time of year. Grayling feed like crazy on dries and nymphs preparing to spawn.

Rules change

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

Cold, but not as cold as it should be, only little snow, which is rare for this time of year.
Fish are hard to get, but still we managed to convince few small grayling to cooperate.
Few changes to the rules in 2007: all hooks must be barbless even outside the no-kill, streamers only from 1st February till 1st September, no bite indicators.
