Tim's Roaring River Fishing Report





Tim Homesley has been fishing Roaring River State Park for over 30 years, and has fished an average of 300 days per year for the last 23 years.




In addition to his own outstanding experience on the local streams and lakes, Tim also has access to the experience of the three guides he runs out of his shop.

You can always get the up-to-the-minute fishing information you need by stopping by Tim's Fly Shop!

Water is finally down a lot, it is only 84 CFS this morning, the dry fly fishing has really gotten good the past few days, blue wing olives, caddis, adams, ants, and beetles are all working well.

Still good fishing with buggers, olive and black still being the best colors.

Copper johns, sow bugs, caddis nymphs, black, brown, and gray zebra midges are still working.

San juan worms, glo-balls, mega worms, and mop flies are all working very well.

9' 7X leaders are great for drys right now, and for nymphs I'm using 6X and for buggers and larger streamers, I'm using 5X or 4X fluorocarbon.

Spinners, and spoons are still working, and small crankbaits are good also, little crawdads seem to work everyday.

Plastics are still very good. Powerbait eggs and worms work very well, cheese yellow, white, orange, and pink have been good colors.

If you are jig fishing, black/yellow, green/yellow, white, brown/orange, and olive RR specials are working very well.

We are using small jigs again, micro jigs and little Ozark jigs are tearing the trout up.

Good luck on the water.
