ipop:i used to haunt black river. when my arms got to bad and i had to give up fly fishing, that is where i went for my last fly fishing experience...until wonder drugs!
like mentioned , there is a sea run of good size trout, and shore conditions are strangled alders. i have paddled and walked it for miles, often towing my kayak behind me as i waded down and up the river.
i was kayak fishing it once for trout, with a salmon fisherman wading the lower end of a pool. we were talking and suddenly the biggest salmon i have ever seen jumped clear over the bow of my kayak!!! it was amazzing!! the salmon fisher was offering me money if i caught it just to have a picture with it. it never hit anything i offered.
like mentioned, it`s not the easiest river to catch fish in, they make you work for it, but it`s beautifull in the foggy mornings....
water is really good now, for so early in August. went down to the tidal pool today....saw a couple jump. That is a treacherous decent down to the pool! I don't fish upsteam of Naves falls, mostly because I see other anglers at Hopleys. I prefer to be alone with the dog! any fly suggestions for rapid pools?
I'd like to build a secret cabin in a secret spot...would help with dusk fishin....could use a partnerbrowns are easiest in or near darkness. now i think i would try a trout imitator fly for them if my first choices weren`t working. they like to eat fish as much as we do! lol! hmmm, i have a nice selection of "trout`s" streamers, now would be a good time to try them trolling from the kayak. i can`t remember trying them, or at least not trying them for long on black river. i wonder if trolling them up stream from the parking spot would work. it would take a lot of floating line out, and may be to twisty for that. i would probabley pick it apart as i worked up stream, casting instead of trolling. down stream, other than the pools, i "dabble" fish as i work my way along.
