Fly fishing for Sunfish – Medina River, San Antonio TX – McFly Angler Fly Fishing Episode 74 by McFly Angler

Fly fishing for Sunfish – Medina River, San Antonio TX – McFly Angler Fly Fishing Episode 74
View on YouTube

Last week Paul and I went out to kayak fish the Medina and had a blast. The water was super clear though and we could not get any fish to bite. So I decided to head out on my own, wading the river and see if I couldn’t get a few. The water clarity was slightly off color comparably, so I was able to get a few to nibble. Quite a few sunfish, and one really nice one. Then also some bass. What a fun time!

The fly that caught most of the fish was something I came up with. I called it the panfish delight. Here is a link to that tying video on how you can tie the same fly. https://youtu.be/AbdUmeNTABQ

I also caught quite a few on a hares ear fly. I tied one on video a while back as well, Here is that video’s link. https://youtu.be/en_VYtmY_xY

Kayak Fishing the Medina River – McFly Angler Episode 73 by McFly Angler

The Medina river was filled with fish, beautiful, and had amazing structure. It had the makings of what could have been an amazing day fishing! And I know we would have caught tons of fish if the water temps weren’t so low. We had a cold front come in 2 days prior and stayed for the weekend, so there was not much chance of that water being warm enough to get the bass to strike. They just were not interested at all. But we saw lots of fish. In fact I was very surprised at how many fish we could see. Catfish, bass, carp, panfish, and shad. All of which were schooling thick, but none would eat. In a way it was a frustrating day, just watching fish not pay attention to your fly, and some scattering at the slightest kerplunk of the fly hitting the water. However we did get a few, and had a nice time just kayaking around. It really is a beautiful river, and very enjoyable to kayak. I will be returning to try my hand at the Medina once again.

The 20 Incher stonefly is a great pattern for mimicking large stonefly nymphs. If tied smaller it can also mimic baetis as well. Its just got everything that makes trout bite. Biot tails, ribbed peacock body, and active legs that move around like crazy. Just really one of the best stonefly patterns out there in my opinion.

Pattern Recipe

Hook I used: Firehole Sticks #718 in size 12
Alternative Hook: Daiichi 1270
Weight: .015 Lead Wire
Thread: Veevus 6/0 in Black
Dubbing: Natural Hares ear plus
Tail: Brown Goose Biots
Ribbing: Silver Tinsel
Abdomen: Peacock Hurl
Wing Case: Pheasant Tail
Legs: Hungarian Partridge
Cement: Solarez Ultra Thin “Bone Dry” UV Resin
