Great afternoon on Rapid Creek below Pactola yesterday. Saw a couple fish rising, but not enough to switch to the dry fly. Fishing was best with small midge larva droppers behind a heavily weighted scud pattern. Forecast looks great for fishing today and Sunday. Then a few days of colder weather to start the week.
Small midges fished deep were the ticket. We used the new Corqs Indicators with a jigged Boat Anchor Scud and small tungsten Zebra Midge. To help the rig sink more quickly we shortened a tapered leader to 4′. Then added 4′ of 5x fluorocarbon tippet to which the scud pattern was attached. We attached 12″ of 6x fluorocarbon to the scud and tied on a #22 zebra midge.
