Regional fishing report 3-9-2022

The regional fishing report for this week.

Blue River: March 7. Elevation below normal, water 39 and clear. For current elevation conditions go to the U.S. Geological Survey website at https://waterdata.usgs.gov/ok/nwis/uv?site_no=07332390. Rainbow trout excellent on in-line spinnerbaits, midges, nymphs and PowerBait along channels and rocks. Egg patterns are working really well for fly fishermen and women on the river, especially bright colored eggs. Midges and small nymphs are also catching fish. PowerBait of choice the last week was the bright colored “mouse-tails” floating PowerBait egg with the attached PowerBait worm. Spoons and in-line spinnerbaits have been producing numerous fish, including some larger fish. Focus on using metallic colored 1/8th ounce super dupers and little Cleo’s spoons with a slow and steady retrieve that will keep you just off the bottom. Fish seem to be holding all over the place whenever there are deep pockets or where there is moving water. Where you find one fish there are probably plenty more, so keep moving if you are not getting bites. Report submitted Ethan Lovelace, technician at the Blue River Public Fishing and Hunting Area.
