Friends of mine fished Roche last week and did very well on rather large fish, fishing midges on 35' leaders in 40' of water. Go deep for the BIG BOYS! (chromies)i'd like to head up that way next weekend (sunday/monday). aside from staying shallow, and trying in the no motor zone (does this mean no electric motors as well?), any other tips on where and how to start? i've never fished roche and really want to give it a try. i'm planning on tying some chironomids and leeches this week. any suggestions as to styles and colors? thanks.
sounds like a plan. will do. it's always nice to meet and greet on the water and in camp. i usually pick up some good tips and share a few of my own. i actually met my fishing buddy this way.Ruger-Roche isn't really all that hard to figure out. It is a very popular lake, so the best approach is to look for where all the boats are and head on over. After the May long, it is quite busy, so rather than try to pick up information on line, I recommend taking a few extra brews and offer up some to the folks at the next campsite, and you'll get all the info you need.
thanks for the tip. i'll be sure to bring along extra tippet.Friends of mine fished Roche last week and did very well on rather large fish, fishing midges on 35' leaders in 40' of water. Go deep for the BIG BOYS! (chromies)
