get above echo, try using more nymphs until you see bugs flying and then go BWO only, or maybe with a tiny dropper





Have you read my Blog? I hear it's getting better!

I agree above Echo is good right now, but I fished Taggarts exit sun and Mon and did pretty good , caught mostly whitefish with a few browns mixed in, i used hare's ear, sow bug, san juan worm, and a irish spring ( green sow bug looking thing)

How was the water clarity? Where on the Weber is there some clear water?

maybe your presentation is off, how do you rig, how long of a leader, how many weights , wheres your strike indicator, etc...the bite is lite I'd almost bet you missed a few bites and didnt know it.

 I hit the Weber on 4/24/10 at Taggart, 8 Browns and countless Whities, water is pretty stained, i'm sure it's just from the recent storms, they can't be letting any water out of Echo yet (can they?), I bet it clears again before the run off starts.

I have a 9 ft leader i tie a fly to that and then a 12" piece of tippet with a fly tied to that all my knots are tied threw the eye of hooks (cinch knots) i put 1 extremely small sinker above the last fly at the end of the line and my strike indicator is about 2 ft above the first fly

any advice would surely be appreciated

You need to get heavier, and the stike is really light. I use usually two siize "BB" or one "BB" and one "B" lead split shots when nymphing on the Weber. I was also there above Taggart on the 24th. Ended up with 8-10 nice browns and I believe it was around 4 whitefish.

Most of them were on a hares ear or a golden stone. My second fly I used either a sow bug or a zebra nymph.

Re: [saige] weber In reply to
where do you usually position the weight on your line and should my strike indicator be further away from my first fly

Re: [Joeylc] weber In reply to
I like to put my strike indicator about 8-12 inches from my actual fly line. Just past the 40lb but section. I use around a 9 ft leader, depending on the day...

I put the weights about 8-12 inches in front of my first fly, where I have a double surgons knot going from 3x to 4x. My second fly I tie off the back of the first flies hook and it is usually 8-12 inches behind.

Hope that helps

I rig like this too, and it seems to work quite well, you gotta remember those fish are feeding near the bottom so you gotta be long enough and heavy enough to get down to them.

Yes, the fish are right near the bottom, they like to stay out of the current going over them and get the easy meals coming through. It is the high stick nymphing method taught by some of the local fly shops....it does work to catch plenty of fish

High stick or Czech?

Crystal ball is telling me that Joeylc's catch rate is going to go up ten fold!!!

Riggning is the key, fallow these guys instructions and you will wear out that zebra midge.

Honestly, I have read about both methods but could not tell you the difference off the top of my head between the two. I was taught that the nymphing method I am using is under the high stick method, but I could be wrong... All I know is that it catches fish and I like it. Cool

The way I get it is Czech is allot of weight (in the fly) fast deep water, and you are basically pulling the fly trough.
High sticking, you are just following the fly letting it go at it's own speed.
Does that make sense?

Then it would be the high stick method. I generally use unweighted flies and I do not pull them through, I let them drift. All the weight is on the line 8-12 inches above my first fly

Right on. Ever try a wetfly/softhackle in that style?

While I understand the difference in the 2 techniques I wouldn't be so rigid in fishing one way or the other or even worrying about what to call it. Sometimes blending the 2 methods works well on our smaller streams in Utah. I like to nymph with a weighted fly (amount of weight varies although czech flies are usually just too heavy for our streams even in in the Spring). I usually let the current take it down but sometimes will pull it through varying amounts. I don't usually use extra weight elsewhere or an indicator. I always adjust how I fish based on the conditions I'm presented with. This can be different 10 feet up from the last spot you fished. Fishing this way with only a fly on your line is incredible sensitive to every movement of that fly. Learn and read about different techniques but adjust them to fit the water and conditions you are fishing and you will be a lot more sucessful. I'm just curious has any one actually tried the Czech technique here in Utah? If so what water where you fishing?

I know some guys that czech on the provo. I think they made a you tube on it too. They are fellow guides at Falcons Ledge.

I personally might be doing some sort of czech technique or another on the weber as well. My nymph fishing technique is VERY hybridized. I think if someone saw me nymph fishing they would probably laugh. Switching to and from long and short leaders/tippet. Its all about the dead drift and getting those flies down deep like said before. If my flies are not weighed down in the tying process I will usually use more split shot weight than most. The fish are also hanging out at the front of the runs and it takes a quick sink to present the fly to those fish. But I must say for me, the most commonly used setup that I use is the dry/dropper. Even with small flies like parachute adams, PMD's and BWO's. The dropper on those ones is usually size 22 or smaller, but on the provo you get so many lookers that they cant resist the little droppers that stare them in the face as they reject the dry fly.
