    Default First day of a hucho season

    After many seasons of more or less exclusively flyfishing for hucho, i have decided to start the season with a spinning rod and not a flyrod.

    First ever...i managed to film an underwater hucho attack, but did not hook it as i underestimated the weight and resistancce of underwater camera and had a rood that was too light...basically i did not even move a lure in its mouth.

    Are the hucho stocks in good shape in your rivers, B ?

    Please keep posting as your video’s are always a breath of fresh air. Just make sure you know the water release times before fishing the power turbine again!

    John, yes we managed to improve population, however, the problem which we have is that due to a weir that gave up above and was a part of a gravel holding pool, we have a disater as gravel has filled the river and considerably degraded habitat so majority of big huchos went down into the accumulation lake.

    Vermontdrifter, thank you for kind words, perheaps some day we shall fish together, who knows, actually met a great friend through this forum and flyfishing for hucho together Regarding the videos, i shall be adding them to the channel, so you can check that too
