Welcome to the El Gallo Fly Fishing Lodge’s Muertos Bay Saltwater Fly Fishing Report for March 28th, 2023. Today’s
fishing conditions were excellent, and our anglers had a blast catching a variety of saltwater gamefish.
The weather conditions were perfect for fly fishing, with mild temperatures and clear skies. The water was clear, and the currents were moderate, which made it easier to target the different species of fish that inhabit our waters. The wind was calm in the morning, but it picked up later in the day, making casting more challenging. However, our experienced anglers were able to adapt to the changing conditions and land some impressive catches.
Yellowtail was the main catch of the day, and our anglers successfully used sardina flies in various colors, including chartreuse and blue. The yellowtail was biting aggressively and putting up a great fight, making for an exciting catch. They were found in depths ranging from 20 to 50 feet, and anglers successfully targeted them near kelp beds and rocky points.
Dorado was also present, and anglers reported seeing them chasing baitfish near the surface. These fish are always a thrill to catch, and our anglers successfully used heavily weighted fly lines and brightly colored Clousser flies. The Dorado was found in open water and near floating debris, so watch for anything that might attract them.
Skipjack tuna were abundant, and anglers successfully used small, brightly colored flies in tan over white and olive over white. These fish were found in large schools and were often seen feeding on the surface, and Anglers had success targeting them with fast retrieves and small popping movements.
Yellowfin tuna were also present but were a bit more challenging to catch. These fish were found in deeper waters, and anglers had some success using heavily weighted flies and fast retrieves. The yellowfin tuna were biting on sardina flies in blue and green colors.
Bonito were also present in large schools, and anglers successfully used small, brightly colored flies. These fish were biting aggressively and putting up a great fight, making for a fun catch. They were found in shallow waters ranging from 10 to 20 feet, and anglers successfully targeted them near rocky points.
Roosterfish were the highlight of the day, with several impressive catches reported. These fish were found near rocky points and shallow waters, and anglers successfully used heavily weighted flies and slow retrieves. The roosterfish were biting on Clouser flies in various colors, including pink and chartreuse. These fish are always a thrill to catch and put up a great fight, making for an unforgettable fishing experience.
Overall, it was an excellent day of saltwater fly fishing at El Gallo Fly Fishing Lodge. The yellowtail, Dorado, skipjack tuna, yellowfin tuna, bonito, and roosterfish were all present and biting, making for an exciting and productive day on the water. If you’re planning a fly fishing trip to our lodge, bring heavily weighted fly lines and a variety of sardina, and Clouser flies to target the different fish species.
That’s all for this week. Stay Salty, Amigos!
