Smile Christmas Eve on the Thompson

Hi all,

I'm heading down to Clinton for Christmas this year to spend the holiday with my wife's grandparents.

I've managed to "acquire" Christmas eve to chase some steel so I plan to head for Ashcroft and fish that area.

I have tied a bunch of squamish poachers and GP's as well as some Spratleys. Can anyone suggest any additional flies?

Thanks,
Len

I think the fly you fish will be the least of your problems. Good luck.

That sounds rather ominous...is it not worth a fish?

Don't listen. Its always worth fishing the T if you get a chance. Remember the wading staff/cleats and you will be fine.

If you get cold, you can go the Log Cabin and John and Laurie will provide you warmers...

Father-in-law got back a week ago from a quick trip up there. He said he rarely got his feet wet, unless it was to land a fish (he got a couple and his fishing buddy got 3), so the slime on the rocks might not be much of an issue if you keep your toes dry. I'd be more worried about ice...

Much different water than I'm used to but if I had the chance to explore that river in any season, I'd not hesitate to give it a go. Just be prepared for cold and wind. If it's too nasty to cast very far, then try your luck nymphing for trout. I hear they are much bigger and more numerous than in past years.
