Skok is a joke, but I guess I should have known that going down. The allure of sight fishing to Kings fresh from the salt was too tempting so I decided to give it another shot. I hadn’t fished the Skok for a couple of years as it changes year to year based on the higher water. Today I was armed with my 11 wt. RPLXi, Galvan T-8 with new Airflo multi line and big nasty rubber legged stoneflies.
The result: 7 hooked, 5 landed, none kept as they weren’t legally in the mouth and a couple were wild fish. The tug is the drug, but I’ll probably pass for next time on the Skok as its turned to a bit of a free for all. I would estimate that from my observations, 99% of the fish of killed fish were fouled, snagged, or otherwise taken. I may end up passing on the Skok, but at least got to see some nice fish swimming around.
