Lees Ferry has a few unique tactics to catch fish. These tactics are taught through our MCO guides. But, as far as getting started we recommend a 9ft leader, 5x tippet, midges, scuds and worms. Color and size are dependent on the day and Trout mood so have a variety. The biggest key that is over looked is the proper amount of weight on your rig. Can this weight allow you to drift down 50 feet and be on bottom? Lees ferry trout feed on the bottom of the river, if you are not down you are not catching fish. Lees ferry is a perfect place to learn how to fish and MCO is dedicated to making you a better fisherman. We look forward to hearing from you please give us a call.
