Goldeye on the Fly


What a beautiful afternoon to go fly fishing for goldeye. We headed east of Red Deer and we were wondering if the skwalas were 40 km downstream of Red Deer.  Well there were good numbers of skwalas upstream of the Joffre Bridge and the goldeye were on them as they hit the water trying to lay their eggs. Interestingly enough, the foam fly, the orange crush was a better bet than a foam skwala pattern. I think the fish in the Red Deer River have a stomach ache from eating so many skwalas!

Oh yes, there were hopper everywhere. That should make for some interesting fly fishing during the season!
