Default Scofield in the tube

A buddy and I fished Scofield on Friday in our tubes. We launched on the southeast side of the reservoir about 8:30 and fished until about 3:00. We were using fly gear with sinking lines from slow to fast sinking. The slower sinking lines worked the best.

We used bead head buggers and leeches in sizes 6-10. The colors that worked the best were olive, orange/brown, dark green. We picked up 75% cutthroats and 25% rainbows. The fish ranged in size from 10" to 17" on the cutthroats and 13" to 16" on the rainbows. We did pick up one small tiger trout and one 11" chub too.

The water temperature was 63-65 degrees and the visibility in the water of about 4' - 5'. The reservoir level is at 88% and dropping.
There were quite a few folks fishing all around the reservoir which is nice to see people using it again. There were several boats out fishing along with a couple of recreational boaters and a couple of wave runners.

Most all of the fish we caught came from water less than 18' deep.
There was a good mayfly hatch that came off around 10:30 along with the usual midges and some fish were feeding on the surface.

It was a fun day to be out on the water. It was one of those rare days when you could call it catching instead of fishing.
