Hey folks, it's Mike Winkler here with your latest fishing update from the Little Red River. The Army Corps of Engineers has been keeping things steady with a consistent generation schedule, pumping out 40 mega watts 24/7 through the dam. 

This week, it's been running at just under one full unit, meaning we've got a touch less water than usual. But fear not, the fishing's still on point!

I've been having success with a Pink San Juan Worm, rigged up about 6.5 to 9 feet deep, under an indicator. Target the banks near moss beds and ledges, or try your luck around the docks. For those feeling adventurous, run the same rig deep down the middle of the channel.

Keep an eye out for caddis flies, especially on warm, sunny days around 11 in the morning. They've been making appearances, so it might be worth switching up to a caddis pattern when they're hatching.

Streamer fishing has been solid, especially when the clouds roll in. Give the Yellow Double Deceiver or Dungeon flies a shot, casting towards the banks. You might just reel in a beauty!

Tight lines and happy fishing!
