Found some wipers at Union...fished for 2 hours or so and landed quite a few while wading about chest deep. The water was around 50 degrees, so the fish were sort of sluggish and thier hits were not as aggressive as usual...all i noticed was my line would stop when i was stripping, instead of the usual "slam!" wipers are famous for. Most of the fish were caught on white Clousers, size 8...small stuff, but they didnt seem to want anything bigger today. they also hit the white more than the chartruese for some reason. most of my wiper patterns are chartruese and white, so i had to dig for some plain white ones in the darkest most unused corners of my flyboxes. try a medium-to-slow strip if you are flyfishing, and move around until you find them.

heres one..a self taken picture of an average fish from today....if you look at the corner of its mouth you will see the clouser.

oh yeah...i also caught a trout...a whopping 10 inches, it looked like it was right off the hatchery truck....

lol, i knew that last report would get some people out there. im heading back out today in about an hour to see if anything is on the feed again...i caught 8 or 10 yesterday, and missed about as many from thier soft hits. im taking a buddy out there today so if it works as it usually does we wont catch anything--- it seems like every time i tell him the fishings hot we get back out and dont catch anything...

as far as how i caught them...nothing was on the surface. i was fishing a few feet down with a medium speed retrieve. move around until you locate an area where you get hits, and then stay there..the fish will be back through. try smaller flies (or lures) instead of the usual aggressive wiper stuff. sunday is suppose to be warmer, so who knows...the fishing could be better. bring a thermometer, look for that magical 52 degrees or warmer.

and to answer ieyeReD...no i didnt keep any. if i want fish to eat King Soopers is right around the corner.....im too lazy to clean any fish...unless its a walleye...then all bets are off....
