I'm camping with family and friends at Hicks Lake in Harrison this weekend and have never fished it. My friend and I will be in tubes and fly fishing but have no idea which areas of the lake to fish, though I imagine we'll be restricted to the campground end unless we feel ready for an hour long kick to the other end. Any suggestions on patterns and areas?

Fished there once last summer. Fishing was pretty slow for us, I managed to land a cutthroat on a black and red micro leech on the sink line. I had casted out toward shore and was stripping it out to deeper water and BAM. That was all the luck I had for the day :? . There is a nice Island not too far of a paddle from the boat launch. Lots of nice drop offs around the Island. I would try there as well as working the structure along the shoreline. I have found cutthroat generally prefer shallower water than rainbows. Casting right at shore and retreiving out to the depths with a minnow pattern (Wolley Bugger) might be worth while, particularly in low light. I have only fished there once so I am sure others have better ways of catching fish here, like the guy fishing from the Island with single eggs. He would just cast it out and let it sit on the bottom...Fish on :eek: Maybe a chronie with a single egg would work :lol: Good luck and let us know how you do :!:

Cheers

I think i'll add my two cents...

My good old trusty Ford-Fender with a wedding ring and a worm...always works like a charm...

Yeah ford fenders are magic in lakes! However he's in a float tube, you'll need the legs of Scott Niedamayer to kick a ford fender around a lake in a float tube.

Good point... :roll: :shock: ... try a flatfish with a worm...or if that is too hard-never actually used a floater before-always canoe or raft or from shore, wet fly with worm...

Flatfish are ok....You never tryed the tube! You have too! It's a lot of fun. One of the best lakes to float tube is Fountain Lake near Lytton. It's a med size lake, but "failry" big fish. Troll 30-50ft from shore with green or brown scud's (Sometimes leetches). In June this lake is fun!

Feels good to b home and have a warm shower!

Allrihgt guys heres the report or what i saw and cought.

Couldn't get into hicks lake to camp , so i stayed in lakeside , right beside the lake lucky me. Went fishing a few times , That like is madness , early in the morning that lake is jumping and when the sun is starting to go down its madd. The best area to shorefish is to the right of the dock , take the wooden plank bridge down , and follow it stright and you will then end up at a grassy feild , take a left and follow that stright untill you get to the water.

Now for the good part , Cought a few little trout off a float and a worm
for the noobs- Float first followed by 2 little weights followed by a bead and a swivle.
than take a 3 food leader with a hook and wing that baby out there with a worm.

I had great fun bringing them in but was kicking my self in the head when the others bring in nice pan trout off the boat.
Boat fishing

Sinking line with a fly , what more do i have to say.


Flyfishing would b good 2 around feeding time.

Neways good luck everyone and keep me posted with the catches.
