Default Dukes Rainbow on Steroids

Vance and I were fortunate enough to be able to fish Dukes New Years Eve. Finally getting around to uploading a small video. Congrats to Vance for catching his personal best. It was just over 20 degrees when we entered the water and we were fishing the treacherous section 4 which isn't for the faint of heart. I think I am getting too old for section 4 lol. Anyway, it was cold but we still had a blast. We didn't catch big numbers but we did catch a couple nice uns. Here is a short video. The rainbow I caught on the video was all jacked up on mountain dew or something. He refused to submit! Strong as an ox. Good way to put an end to 2017. Nice fishing with you Vance.

Pulling in a few quality fish like those will make you all but forget about the temp...nicely done!

It was a blast as is every trip we have. Although we didn't accomplish what we set out for it was (for me at least) the most successful trip I've had when you take in account the weather we braved and the terrain, the hard work payed off. I think I may have finally broken the curse and look forward to many more adventures in the future.

Prowler, great video. Congrats on finishing the year on a high note! 20 degrees, wow, too cold for me, but good for you guys. Congrats to Vance on breaking the curse. Maybe one of these days I can break the curse of Dukes. I have not fished section 4, but I intend to. Again, as always a great video.

I’m getting curious about Dukes. I believe I have a way to fish there in my style but follow the regs. Would y’all recommend trying to schedule in a weekday vs weekend as I’m sure they are booked out?
I’m blaming all of this on Prowler and his good videos. Nice fish guys!

Phil weekday would probably be easier but I've had good success walking on and taking a spot of a no show. I've been able to walk on the last four times I've tried.

Awesome video and fish. I'm heading to Duke's this Sunday, the 21st, for the first time. Any tips on what they are going after. I was told black zebra midges, rainbow warriors, and red zebra midges are working best up there at this time. Thanks.

That is really good to know! Thanks for the heads up Kevin! I keep reading up on section 4 but I had someone mention that the section downstream of that in the gorge has a bunch of wild bows and some big browns that have gotten washed down. You ever venture down that way as well?

I知 going this coming Saturday so I知 curious as well. When I went back in November, red and olive zebra midges were working. Wouldn稚 touch a black body midge. Seemed to be more receptive to black beads rather than the shiny silver ones. I was told bubble back midges were fooling them pretty well...
