Made it to the Blue River in Oklahoma for the first time this year. Been tough to breakaway and make the run across the border but finally had the opportunity Saturday. Bite was steady for our fishing partner using ultralight gear an Power Bait Trout Worms in Chartreuse. The showed no interested in Pink or Natural… all they wanted was Chartreuse.
Yours truly fished with the 4wt fly rod and used the Rio Trout Max shooting head. Tried several fishing flies without success… then got one to take an Olive Near Deere. Did get a few more strikes but my mojo was off and missed the hook set. Got the hint, and switched to Trout Worms. After missing one and losing another, caught one!
This round one of us limited out; the other caught two… no worries though, did stop by Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Restaurant in Tishomingo for live music and dinner!
