Fishing

The topographic profile and the "Strawberry fish density" allows a very interesting and varied fishing! "

Indeed throughout his course, I is taken to fish very different positions as large deep pools, Rapids, the veins very marked water, riffles through a RIPRAP or well dug banks, etc...

The area fished being located below the dam the flow remains stable and very clear waters!

On this course the most represented species is the Brown whose average size fluctuates between 12 and 14 inches, the largest specimens home was going up to 21,5 inches and was touched and seen fish exceeding the 27,5 inches !
These fish have of great dresses Golden tainted of black, red, see rust and are cut out for the fight!
There are also pretty cutthraot but not very represented on this sector and size average (10/12 inches) often posted in areas of rapids and under cover of vegetation.

We were in this area late September so we got fall's fishing conditions, more focused on the nymph and facing fish that was beginning to reach their areas of spawning!
Despite this we have been busy with fish in perfect conditions that we put our gear!
My wife broke his rod on a 18 inches fish shortly after having lost "the" fish of the stay (close to 27/29 inches)!

Flys

Dry:


As I told above, being late in the season, waters was already cold,  fishs at the beginning of migration and few outbreaks at the time the conditions were not in place to provide a quality dry fishing!


Despite this we still could get a few beautiful surface!
Models which we work still emerging classics CDC loop/deer, the ears of Hare and inevitably in view of the surrounding vegetation, the land like locusts!


Normally dry fishing should be excellent because the waters are of the highest quality and we could see a very nice population of insect from larvae of Trichoptera in the short-lived through the perlidae!

Nymphs:

The "Strawberry" is a river perfect for fishing nymph and share its crystal clear waters, its very marked veins of water, her long smooth, etc... the Queen technique remains the nymph view! "
In this case the weighted or little weighted as of the pheasant tail nymphs are perfect!
Sometimes certain positions where the current is more powerful or some deeper pools (almost 3 meters for some) will force the use of heavier nymphs as the body lead varnish under weighted body, etc...
To scout the rapids or some powerful veins of water, it is advisable to use nymphs ball style pheasant tail or perdigones (2-3.5 mm tungsten balls).

Trichoptera with or without balls are not to neglect!

To summarize, the "Strawberry" is a gem nestled in the heart of a green screen, paradise for the angler !
That either nymph or dry (or even to the streamer), every fisherman will spend unforgettable time on the banks of this river.
NB: in view of the physical condition of these beautiful, I know that advise you to not go down below the 14/100! It took us a few beautiful fish lost to us as the 10/100 (and even 12) clearly did not match those pretty shells and even in 14 we lost again some fish!
