COAF Field Team Vlog #33 – Frisco Commons for Trout This Round! #flyfishing

By / February 11, 2017 / Frisco Commons

Fished Frisco Commons Pond in Frisco today; steady action on Near Deere. Was able to limit out on Trout. Even caught an albino and two Bass as well.

Lots of fun despite windy conditions and warm temps; enjoyed a little catch and release fishing while practicing casting in windy conditions.

Did see a number of fish taken with Silver Super Dupers, Kastmasters, and White Rooster Tails and the old standby Power Bait. Also, met a couple of Readers of our blog today; great to meet ya’ll and hoped the bite was on today for you

Log Book Entry: 2/11/17

  • Location: Bethany Lakes – Main Pond (Frisco)
  • Time: 12:00 – 14:00
  • Weax: Clear, “Short Sleeves”, Breezy
  • Rod: Redington Classic Trout 5wt – 9′
  • Reel: Echo Ion 4/5 – 6wt Flyline



  • Warm and windy and crowded but crowd was expected given the derby held that morning.
  • Opted to fish the “pier” area to keep the wind behind us and take advantage of it for casting purposes.
  • Trout were striking in a similar manner as at Waterloo in Denison when the temps were warm – 15 to 30 count delay followed by long pulls at 6 count intervals.
  • Trout were going for Near Deere in Olive, White, and Black. No takers on Pink, and did settle on Black the remainder of the trip.
  • Caught a couple of Bass and lost one Trout that went for a White Near Deere. Also, caught an Albino (also nicknamed Golden) Trout.
  • Others were doing well with Silver Super Dupers, Silver Kastmasters, and White Rooster Tails. Power Bait was doing well, too!

Looks like a fine days fishing at an obviously popular lake. The Near Deere in various colours works very well.
It's been very hot here in Victoria, Australia and I've been pretty reluctant to go out for a fish. The next few days look possible. I'd like to give those Near Deere flies that you sent me a decent work out.


Thanks Steve! Has been a warm Winter here so far. Made it out this morning; only got one using a PMC Emerger. Good luck with the Near Deere in Australia!
