Trout Fishing Report Week 27A – 2015

Posted on 19/07/2015

First Knee Litza and Big Trout Kharlovka.

We started at First Knee Litza and the fishing was disappointing . We did not catch many fish. At the home pool during a mayfly hatch only two fish were rising. These two fish were caught several times during our stay. The weather was cold and windy.

We came to Big Trout Kharlovka with great expectations as I have fished this camp early in the season several times in the past with success. We were not disappointed. From we started fishing on Tuesday we fished to rising fish and caught many. Both caddis and mayflies were hatching. I caught my fish mainly on the Rackelhanan and on No-hackle mayfly imitations. Other flies used by the other group members, with success, were Streaking Caddis, the french Secret Caddis and other mayfly and caddis imitations.
