Gotta wonder about FF types

Recommended Posts

Folks,

Fished Beaver Thursday > Saturday. The first two days lots of FF types there. Saturday,, there was 4 of us all day. Two didn't last more than a few hours. 

Appears like FFTypes think that it is busy on weekends when truth be told, it is busier when FFeds think no one will be there.

seen much the same thing on the Crow years ago when FFTypes wouldn't go when the river was open to bait. 

Not sure what this says about us.

No one goes there anymore; it’s too busy.

Everyone took days off to fish during the week because of the the dismal forecast for the weekend. That's what I did.

I'd assume that place would be a gongshow on the weekends and I've only ever fished there once.

I  have fished that sumbitch twice and my first beaver lake fish still eludes me. Maybe this yr since both it and Bullshead are about the same drive.

Probably the quickest way of finding a fish there is to watch the shorelines in the deep South Bay and island for bait busting/fish splashes and fire a thunder creek minnow in.

My next thought woulda been “well how did it fish mid week?” Reports good or bad, move quick.

anyways, what does it say about Us if we’re making blanket statements from a couple isolated casual observations? Ha

Bron,

you bet causal observations done for fifty years of about 130 days/year.

I fish there fairly often. Caught many of fish in the past. Most days are just ok now. If I manage to land 6 a day, then it's an OK day. I do feel like the pressure at beaver has increased over the last 7 years I've been fishing it. 

Don, I have also noticed even this year that people come for a couple hours, if they don't get a nibble, they just leave. Patience here is key. 

Still can't figure out how to catch one on a chironomid. I do have a couple favourites that always get me at least 1 big un.

I think that with the downturn in the economy in Alberta that people have more time on their hands. So they get their hands on a fly rod and off they go.

You hit it on the head. Not as many dollars to chase these days like there used to be, working the weekend and getting 12 hours of OT isn't an option to lots anymore.
