    Default Little Su

    I was thinking of heading to the Little Su and fishing below the launch at Burma Road. I have never been there before and was wondering if it can be fly-fished or if I would be better served bringing my baitcaster. Also, wondering how the water levels are. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Default Little Su

    Thanks

    Is the water still high and murky or has it come down?

    Default fish

    Sent wife, daughters, aunt and father-n-law with guide yesterday on the little su. They went toward the mouth and everyone limited out. They did use most of the 6 hours, but they mentioned fishing was good.

    Default Slow

    My Family and I spent a majority of Sunday there. We fished downstream past the last platform. We tried orange, pink and chartruse (sp) vibrax and purple egg sucking leeches. My wife snagged a spawned out king It was pretty lame.

    Default Very Slow

    We walked even farther than the last platform, down to a beach that looked like a good spot and only caught one humpy. Only saw one silver caught from 5-9:30. Hopefully it picks up as the fish move upstream.

    guys the fish are all over that river right now, down and up stream. ive been going up lately (as much as 7 miles or so) and catching lots of fish my partner prefers his downstream holes and is catching lots of fish.

    Default It is still fishing...

    They are everywhere, I agree. But, getting them to hit is an entirely different matter......My brother and I spent hours going up and down stream in the boat in all the traditional holes trying to get them to bite. It just wasn't happening. Finally, we just went home. It was however, a very warm and nice day on the water and it is so much better not catching in the sun than it is in the rain.....

    Default We spent all day Saturday

    there and got skunked. There were 4 of us in the boat. We went down and worked methodically. We cast, back bounced, used the fly rod, worked from shore and nothing. We personally saw 1 fish caught. Saw some people at the landing with fish. As we pulled the boat out, I talked to a guy who had just finished his float down from the parks. He said they didn't catch any fish until they got about 5 miles upstream of the landing. He said everyone up there were catching fish. I guess I will try up next time.

    i dont know what to tell you guys. here is a nice 12# buck caught monday night. he was an awesome fighter! went after work for a couple hours 4 people 6 silvers and a couple chum and pinks. there was an old old guy and his wife parked up the bend aways and they limited out while we were there. his wife was funny, she was netting his fish from inside the boat without even getting up. she just sat there and you saw a net come out and swoop em up. i think the board count was around 192 when we left at 9:30 or so.

    The bad thing is there are wrecks there every year.

    My boat is very fast but I can slow down by dropping the throttle it is amazing how that works.
