Cheeseman Canyon Report - October 2011 - Getting Cheesy
I like getting cheesed as much as the next guy, but right now in Cheeseman Canyon, everyone is getting some! Meaning the fishing is very good. The weather has been warm and a steady flow of about 100 cfs, means that the fish are sitting in perfect lies and the hatches are strong.
Upon getting to the river in the morning, about 9ish, I experienced an amazing trico hatch. The fish were not keying in on the dries, but the hatch definitely got fish going. They were feeding hard and I capitalized. Using a variety of small nymphs (beatis, midge) fished behind a Tungsten Serveryer, Large Pheasant Tails, or Tung Teasers.
The few sticks that I farmed off the bottom of the river were covered in Caddis, and under every rock there were a good offering of Beatis crawling around. On hot days like we have been experiencing this fall a few hoppers will be clicking around overhead and a variety of other terrestrials can be found crawling around.
Until the next time I get a craving for some big cheese, ill remember this day.
