    Default Fly fishing murky muddy water

    Anyone have any flyfishing tips for catching Silvers in the murky water?? The water I am fishing is really muddy and you cannot see the fish moving at all. I have also used a lot of flies and cannot find the right one that the Silvers will bite on to in this condition. I cast downstream and strip my line the correct way but still no Silvers grabbing my flies. I have caught a lot of salmon on flies but this water condition is really different. Any advice would be great.

    A few times in muddy water I have had luck standing back from the waterscedge and fishing within inches of the bank. You can't see the fish and they can't see you. They move right next to the bank. You will be amazed how close. Usually this is in high muddy conditions. Hope this helps. Good luck

    Good advice MTguy! Silvers swim in the least current they can find and still be safe. They must feel safe in murky water because you can see their wakes they swim so shallow.

    You asked the same question a while back, but I was the only one that answered. Good to see another response, but you can read what I said too in the the original thread.
