Fishing with Pete




A good friend of mine made the drive up to fish with me. Pete and I had to look for the fish but we found enough to make good day. We found most of our fish in the fast water today. The water flow is still running on the high side, the water color is murky. The water temp is 48 degrees, at this temp the steelheads are starting to get aggressive. We were able to catch most of our fish today by swinging flies. Today the productive flies are: little rainbow size 2, ugly egg sucking size 4, black woolly buggers size 6 and 4.

Oatka Creek; Rite now Oatka is still flowing high but improving, Oatka is at 3.55 as of today, on the USGS map. What this means is that you may be able to fish the section we call the trail. With this high water you will do best fishing nymphs and streamers. Possibly by the weekend all of Oatka may be in good fishing condition.
