:: Fishing Report


April 23rd
There is good news and bad news. I guided today in 50 degree rain, but we caught a lot of trout. Certain areas are producing a lot of nice fish. Now for the bad news. It has rained nearly four inches in two days and the lake is skyrocketing big time. Don't know when it is going to be fishable again. For more updated reports then please check out my Facebook page at Doubledoutfitters. It is always best to text me at 502 432-5188 if you have any questions.

Easter Sunday
Finally, an honest fly fishing report. It has been nearly two months since I have guided. The new house has taken up a lot of any spare time that I have, but there have been very few days in which the river was fly fishable. Yesterday I took out some new clients, Ryan and his dad Mike. We put in at Winfrey's, ran up to Long Bar then later ran all the way to Big Willis. If we found caddis then we found fish. It got windy so we stuck with the brown roach and rainbow warrior or bead head caddis dropper. Yes, if you fished with me in the past then you know I had an egg rigged rod. Once the two guys mastered the mend lift and drift then it was on!!! I can't think of a time in which I saw so many obese trout! we didn't land anything over 18", but I am guessing that nearly half of the dozens of trout that were landed fell within the slot. An excellent day to say the least. I don't have any openings until June, but there are many summer openings still available. During the last two years June has produced the most and some of the largest fish. Call or text me at 502 432-5188 or check out the daily reports on my Facebook page at Double D Outfitters. A Happy Easter to all!

March 10th
It's been a while since I have posted a report because I haven't been out on the water. I bought a house and have been in the process of moving more crap that I ever thought a family of five could ever have. My May weekends are nearly full with the exception of the first one. As you all know, my June and July are my busiest months and people have been booking many of those days. March through April can be hit or miss due to the potential for rain and an increase in water releases, but if you want to get out then shot me a text. As always, it is best to contact me via texting at 502 432-5188. Next Sunday is open!

Guided the past two days and did ok for this time of the year. The water is in the mid 40s and the fish aren't super aggressive, but they sure put up a fight when hooked. Eggs, rainbow warriors and zebra midges did well. My June and July are starting to fill up. If you are interested in a summer trip then start thing of reserving one soon. As always, it is best to contact me at 502 432-5188. You can also check out recent trip pics by checking out DoubleDOutfitters on Facebook.

It has been a while since I have been out on the river. The Corps has started holding back on flows and it looks to be fly fishable. The weather looks good for the next week without any rain so next weekend looks good. I have somebody for Presidents Day, but next Saturday and Sunday are open. My May schedule is nearly full because I can only guide on the weekends. Don't forget about June! It is filling up and my return customers know just how good it can be. If you want to get out on the river this summer then put some thought into booking a trip soon. Contact me on my cell at 502 432-5188.

There haven't been any reports because I haven't guided since the the week after Christmas. It's been raining and the Corps has been releasing too much water for fly fishing. As it gets colder we typically get less precipitation and we need less than that. You might want to start thinking about booking your late spring and summer trips soon. I have picked up a lot of new clients this past year and something tells me that they will be back. There are only so many days that I can fish. I guide nearly every day in June and July while school is out. I am not saying that the calendar is full, but it will be by April/May. You can always check updated reports and pics on my Facebook page at DoubleDOutfitters and it is always best to contact me via cell at 502 432-5188.

Merry Christmas to all! What a year it has been out on the river. Looking back at the calendar I can't think of a busier year than 2016. The water levels were fishable and the Corps cooperated some of the time. Our fish made it through the late summer/early fall with flying colors. Over the past month I have been guiding the stretch from Winfrey's to Bakerton and we have landed a lot of fish in the 20-25 inch range. Just check out some of the daily pics on my Facebook page at DoubleDOutfitters to see for yourself. There are some openings this week and January. Happy Holidays and remember it is best to contact me via cell at 502 433-5188.

December 6th
My clients have landed some very nice rainbows and browns over the last three weeks. Just check out the pics on Facebook. You will see several browns in the 4-8 pound range and a few big bows as well. The fish, both bows and browns are attempting to spawn. Find marble sized gravel and moving water and you will find these hungry fish. Egg patterns in peach, fluorescent peach and salmon egg colors are producing the most fish. Have another rod with a zebra midge for some of the slack water and along the deeper stretches. I have observed some very nice fish midging through the day. You could even fish a midge below a hopper! Yes, the fish are still looking up for an offering but presentation is the key. I still have a few openings between now and the end of the year. This fishing should continue as long as we don't get too much rain. As always, it is best to contact me by texting or calling me at 502 432-5188.

The fishing right now is the best fall fishing that I have seen in years! Bigger browns and bows are stacked up along gravel bars and washes all along the river. Just yesterday my guys caught more slot rainbows than I have seen in months. There aren't as many browns, but the ones you hook into are going to be big. The biggest one yesterday was just shy of 21." I have a few openings between now and Christmas and next weekend is open. Go to my Facebook page at DoubleDOutfitters to see daily updates and some pictures of nice fish. It might be colder, but the fish are biting. As always, if it looks good then we go. If not then keep your $ and take your girl out. As always, it is best to contact me at 502 432-5188.

The lake has finally turned over and the quality of water being released is much better. Guided yesterday and did very well. Three browns over 20" were landed by one of my return clients. Not too shabby! I have a few openings in December. As always it is best to text or call me at 502 432-5188. Check out some of the recent fish that my clients have caught at Double D Outfitters on Facebook!
