Lower Kings River trout fish report May 1, 2019

May 1, 2019  Lower Kings River below Alta Weir

Check out the trout I caught on the Lower Kings River in the riffles just below the Alta Weir (when the flows were about 4800cfs earlier this month).  It was built like a salmon and was at least 22in….

The fly is what we call a “skinny PT” below a strike indicator.  I had been fishing down below the riffles where the sycamore tree hangs out over the water with various patterns and no love whatsoever.  Then I got to the riffles and switched out to the skinny PT and immediately got into fish.
