Default Caney Fork

Well, the Caney is not much fun for us waders right now. Not much action on just about anything I tried. Did get one on the line with a Yellow Sally and a ZM dropper, but couldn't get it in the net. Switched to a Dark Hendrickson and got a couple of strikes on that. Met a guy coming out of the river that had just as much trouble as we did and heard a lot of complaints about the fishing from other people as well.

Uh oh

No midge action? What about BHPT? And if all else fails, wooly buggers?

Quit fishing flies that do not represent the food the trout are eating.

Scuds, sowbugs, midges, and other nymphs. Reports are that people are absolutely wearing them out. Fish just off the bottom.

I had a zebra midge dropped down to the bottom and got very little response. I tried, black, red and green. I will try the others you mentioned next time. Don't know about the boaters, but everyone that I talked to that was wading had very little luck today and I talked to several people on the river and a couple in the parking lot. Thanks for the advice on the flies. I had forgotten about the scuds and sowbugs.

Remember there are also different types of midges. Try a stripper midge or other variation. I forgot about scuds as well, I'm sure you would wear them out on a white beadhead, olive beadhead, or orange beadhead scud. Those always seem to be the ticket.

I'll have to educate myself on the stripper midge.

I wouldn't recomend that. The last stripper "anything" I educated myself on cost me several thousand dollars, and a marriage. Although, it's not that much different than flyfishing!!!

I just got back from the Caney. Got there as the water was going down. Fished a #22 midge dropped from a BHPT. Got several strikes on the midge and landed a couple. Water started to rise and I threw a bugger and then a muddler minnow with tungsten putty placed about six inches above the fly. The minnow produced one fish. Overall it was only a 3 fish to hand day. One guy said he had caught around thirty earlier in the day.

With the current moon phase, the best fishing should be early and late in the day. When the sun is high overhead the fish are going to be glued to the bottom (generally) and picky...
