Re: High Water Streamer Flies and Tactics

My first experience with big steamers in stained water was in March on Penns. Water was up and off color but not blown out. I threw big black and purple streamers with zonker strips and deer hair/marabou. I had lots of hits, some were shark week worthy. I only managed to land one fish (about 17") but several of the missed fish were easily 19". I wish I had articulated multi hook streamers because most of the hits came up short. I'm sold on big meat in high water. Though it'll wear you out.

High muddy water I like to fish streamers downstream, deaddrift, and let the fly swing at the end of the drift. Usually if you don't get a hit during the drift you will during the swing.
Another thing to try is worm imitations, especially if the water is over the banks. Do the same thing with the fly and hang on.

The object of a resource is to use and reuse a resource, not to use it up, have we learned nothing in over 125 years of stocking?
