Default Anyone fished the Sipsey lately?

Wow, it's been a while I've been on this board. I like the new setup, looks good!

I am thinking, only thinking at this point, about fishing tomorrow at the dam. How has fishing been lately, anybody been recently? I got on the Riverside site today and saw the pic of the pickerel- man, what a fish!

Take care.

Default Sipsey

I had never heard of a trout stream in Abalama until I saw something about the Sipsey this past week, possibly the same day Bamafisherlady posted! Anyway, I sent some info to a buddy in Oxford -- looks like that might be closest trout water for him. If anyone has info I'd like to pass it on to him.

The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation, unless they fly fish... with apologies to Thoreau

why of course,i`ve fished(not swam) the sipsey lately.its fishing good right now.i caught 17 last saturday from 11:00 til 5:00.fish are still hitting small stuff.i tied some olive bead head zebra midges a couple of nights before and thats all i used.i used an indicator from1 to 2 ft up.my fishing buddy used the same flys and only had 1 bite.i know i missed at least 30 bites.i think the key was making long drifts,being patient and using 6X flourocarbon tippet.i also expirmented with adding a very small bright orange tail to the flys.they seemed to like that when got tough.all were size 18.

Thumbs down

Hey there, sorry it has been so long since I havebeen back on. I did go that Saturday and we had a little luck - most of the girls who fished used Salmon eggs and I used my flies. Must not be very good at selections b/c they looked at everything I put on and then swam off with the exception of one trout. Anyway, I might try it again next week. I love it down there!

Take care and try not to swim!
