Hello everyone, sorry it’s been so long since my last report, its been a wild start to the new year, as some of you may know, my father Jon “Rocky” Lovett passed away on January 15, 2011. I want to start by saying, the business is still operating.
I have been on the water pretty regular and the fishing is getting better and better everyday. The midge hatches are getting to be bigger and bigger, and as soon as the winter weather breaks, and the nights stay above 50 degrees, the midges will come out in full force and mark the beginning of the great spring fishing.
The fish are still in great health coming out of winter and are already looking for their spring midge feast.
I have been catching fish with a couple different techniques; of course the standard nymphing rig, the midging rig, and have had good success as well with a dry-dropper rig in curtain places.
San Juan worms in live colors, zebra midges, the occasional scud in live colors, and of course egg patterns in multiple colors are all producing fish.
The spawn is still going, as it will until usually the month of May. Spring is a great time to come to Lee’s Ferry, the canyon is exceptionally beautiful this time of year, the slopes along the river are already turning green, and the Tamerisk trees have started to bloom.
I encourage you come see M.C.O. for a great time, and the thrill of chasing the beautiful, wild rainbows of the Colorado river.
Look forward to meeting and fishing with you all, thanks again, and as always keep your rod tip up….Mick Lovett-owner/operator, M.C.O.
