October 16th
The water is as low as I have seen in the last year. The bite can be tough, but wherever you find moving water then you are going to find fish. Last weekend one of my guys from Indy landed a 22" bow on a chartreuse peach egg. Eggs are on as fish are preparing for the spawn. Occasionally you will see larger browns porpoising in the shoal areas, but it seems that the rainbows are the ones cooperating. I still have October 29th open then after that my next opening aren't until the first weekend of a December. Some of you who have fished with me during the late fall and early winter understand just how good the fishing can be! Give me a ring or send me a text at 502 432-5188 if you are interested in getting out with me.

I have been at it nearly every weekend day since school started and it keeps getting better. Didn't guide today due to the remnants of a hurricane, but I look forward to getting out there next weekend. The browns and some bows are beginning to show up in the shoal areas to do their thing. I saw a handful of bigger browns in the 5-7 pound range porpoising at one gravel bar early in the morning. We landed a bunch and I mean a bunch of slot rainbows yesterday. Fish and wildlife stocked a whole bunch of fish in the 15-19 inch range and there were some areas where we caught fish after fish. They look healthy and I hope they aren't illegally harvested. What is working? Chartreuse peach egg patterns and chartreuse and orange mop flies have been hammering them. I have also been using my brown roach with a zebra midge or rainbow warrior. We broke off a few big ones yesterday on this rig and never got a good look at them. I have a few days in late October, November and December. Last year some of the best fishing was from late November to early January. Give me a ring or text at 502 432-5188 if you are interested in getting out on the river.

Fished with some return customers from Georgia and they hammered them big time! I usually don't count fish, but Barry and Todd did and every time we landed a fish we tried to think of a college or pro football player who wore that #. That is tough to do when you catch 113 in one day and a total of 202 for both days. Most of the fish were rainbows and well over 25 each day were between 15-19 inches. I might have an opening in late October. As always, it is best to contact me at 502 432-5188.

The fishing is still exceptional on weekends. The Corps has cut back on water releases on the weekends, sluicing 1600 cfs and then running two generators in the afternoon and evening. Target shoal areas until early afternoon then high banks while the two generators are running. What is working? You can't go wrong with a bright egg pattern, but I still can't get over how many fish have fallen to chartreuse and orange mop flies! The drift lift and drop technique has always worked well with egg patterns, but the fish absolutely destroy the mop flies, especially on the drop. Once the water comes up then we smack hoppers close to the high banks and when I say smack I mean SMACK! You need something to grab their attention with the higher water. Some of the hits are so violent while others are just a slurp. We have missed a few monsters due to setting the hook prematurely so keep that in mind. My next opening is Saturday, October 7th and you can text me at 503 432-5188 to reserve it. Scratch the 7th. Next available day is Saturday, October 21st.

Shoal areas are producing a lot of rainbows on the weekends when the Corps is sluicing. When the are generating then fish the high banks and definitely have a rod rigged with a hopper. Pulled off a few big ones yesterday on top. Sunday, September 10th is my only September opening so act fast if you want it.

I guided yesterday and the river was on fire. There were a few areas in which my guy had a hit on nearly every cast which is just plain ridiculous. On the weekend the Corps has cut back on water releases. They still run the sluice gates, but all generation was shut off until noon central time. Mop flies and white marabou jigs caught most of the fish and presentation and knowing the area is critical. If there is enough current then fish the high banks. As water levels dropped by mid morning then we targeted shoal areas, bumping the jigs right along the bottom. Setting the proper depth and lifting your rig every 5-10 seconds is the key. I still have this Saturday open so give me a ring or send me a text at 502 432-5188 if you want to get out.

The Corps has cut back on weekend flies and the fish are really cooperating! I have next Saturday open and it will probably be taken soon. If you want to get out and catch a bunch of fish and the chance at a trophy fish then the time is now. Contact me at 502 432-5188!

The Corps has been running two generators plus a sluice gate. It sounds like a lot of water, but we are landing a lot of slot fish. Last Sunday alone one guy landed nearly 20 trout that were in the 15-18" range. This is the time to hook into a trophy!!! Give me a ring at 502 432-5188. I know where the big ones have been hanging out.

I have several weekend openings from August through December. Hopper fishing will be picking up shortly. For example, we saw some rather large bows cruising the banks yesterday. My client threw out a chartreuse mop fly and BAM! Gotta get ready for the top bite. This will run into late October as the fish have been used to looking up. Last year some of my best fishing was from mid November to early January. The big ones show up on the shoal areas to spawn and it wasn't uncommon to catch several fish in the 18"-24" range on each trip. There is a very limited amount of these late fall early winter trips so don't wait too long to book. As always check out daily fish pics on my Facebook page at Double D Outfitters and my contact # is 502 432-5188. On a sad note, I have to return to school tomorrow.=-

Well, nearly another summer break has passed, but I will still be guiding on weekends. This Sunday the 6th is open!!! July was a big fish month! Countless 20"+ fish were landed and released. Find cover and deeper water with a bit of flow snd you will find them. As always, check out my facebook page or call me at 502 432-5188 if you are interested in booking a trip.
