Los Caneros
May 23rd, 2006, 8:05am
 
Went to los Caneros yesterday on monday the 22nd, used black wolly buggers with crystal flash the whole time and caught 6 sun perch in about 2 hours. Talked with other people at the lake and appearantly there are sun perch, bluegill, largemouth bass, and catfish in the lake. People tell me the biggest fish caught out of Los Caneros was a 9 pound bass. What flies will catch Largemouth Bass, im new at this and just graduated from the Academy.

Keep using that Black Wooly Bugger!  Give us a little time and maybe I can find out what has been a good fly for Los Carneros. Try fishing in the morning before the water heats up because thats when the bass feed most in the shallows.  Remember to look around and see what kind of things are swimming around that a bass might eat like miinnows.  And don't bend your wrist!

I've had the best luck on sunfish in the spring and summer when the fish are picking bugs off of the surface using attractor flies (Royal Wulff, Coachman, Humpy etc.) Gnat's and mosquitos work as well. Sunfish are not to particular. Getting their attention is the key.  The WB is always a good failsafe. Smaller sizes for sunfish and go big for bass. For larger fish, try stepping up sizes on your WB. Bass like a big meal. I've dressed some very large WB's in olive, brown and black using maribou tails that the bass just love. You should try the V-worm (easy fly to tie) and clouser minnows for bass as well.

I've only recently started tying my own. The wife gave me a kit for Christmas last year which included a book, video and a number of supplies. I've also pulled several recipies for various patterns off of the net and created a few of my own. There is much out there to learn from. I will say that catching fish on your own fly, enhances the satisifaction and the art.

Does anyone know if float tubes are allowed on Los Caneros?  I never even thought of it as a fishing option.

Fish_Whisperer, if your an Academy graduate just contact me. As I posted in the general Fly Fishing section, I have made arrangements to purchase kits and instruction books along with some extra donated materials. E-mail me and I will send you the details.
