Stripers on da fly =)
So I been told that there is some good Stripers fishing
close to my house. A reservoir connected to aqueduct that is float tubing friendly.
I guess the stripers get into the aqueduct in California
Delta and travel for hundreds of miles in aqueduct and
thats how they make they way to SoCal inland reservoirs.
I have never ff for stripers or float tube that lake before.
Anybody got any lake stripers experience that would
like to share?

Ive not fished strippers before but that area sounds like it would be a blast.. maybe some wb's ... or if they in shore try some poppers or hopper terrestial patterns.. just a thought.. :-)

No stripers, but Wipers here. White, yellow and Chartreuse buggers.

Peter,

I haven't tried it yet but definitely want to do so. It seems like you may need a boat as you're looking for boils and need to approch them much faster than you can in a tube.

Check you PM's for some additional info.

Yeah, you have to chase the boil around. The larger fish are underneath the boil. But even the smaller fish are generally large. Some empoundments have stripers in the river below the empoundment.

You might try the spinster fly. It was developed specifically for lake stripers which are actually a hybrid between ocean stripers and bass. Small mouth bass I believe. The spinster recipe is on Dan Blanton's website. Fly Fishing purist may shutter at the recipe.

You will want sinking shooting heads. I think Blanton's website also talks about how to make them.

disinfect your wading equipment. wash boat. disinfect livewells / sumps, wash ur dog

MONSTER STRIPER BASS: You are talking about stripe bass I want to let everyone know some of my favorite places to catch some monsters.... TVA stocked these beast in Cumberland Lake and Cumberland River.... They have absolutely have matured to growth the National level has never seen... Every year they are catching 50lb + stripe bass on big crankbaits, swimbaits and live bait... with extremely large amount of bait fish stripers are thriving.... Many anglers through out the country are coming to Kentucky and Tennessee to chase after them.... There are some excellent guides that are available if anyone ever decides to adventure this way...

I know you guys enjoy fly fishing, I do too, but I also like catching monster fish...

But, it can be done on a fly. Right tool for right job is all.

The fly I sent you is a good fly for stripers. Use it on sinking line. I usually fish for them in saltwater and look for water temps of 53 degree and structures during tide changes.
In lakes they seem to be more active in the heat of summer. They school up in the shallows and blitz on the baitfish usually early morn and evening. When they are in this mode you can throw pretty much anything you want. Poppers work good.

Mac & I are into catching minnows. That is because it gives less stress to our equipment. lol

The fly I sent Peter was something like an angel hair bunker. It works great for smallmouth too. Here are 2 pics dry/wet.

I have not used that fly just yet. I have been very busy at work now ( which is very good ) working on this TV show
so fishing just has to wait.
I will post as soon as i get to go fishing.
Thank you so much.
