Trying to get a feel for the fishing in sections 2 and 3? I know it can be hard to access/fish with higher flow conditions but is it worth it if fishable? Do the fly shop guides ever do these areas? Thx
I somehow got the idea that Zone 2 (It's "Zones", not "Sections, by the way) wasn't being stocked this year, but I don't know. I haven't been down there this season. I've concentrated my fishing more at Spillway Creek. I would think, though, that if people are fishing for trout down there that it's almost done for this season. The water will start getting awfully warm the further downstream you get. There are other species, though.
Zone 2 was my favorite place on the river for many years. There are some big fish in the hole downstream of the old Irish Run. The Oklahoma state record brown trout (as of 2008) was caught there. If they aren't stocking there anymore you won't catch alot of fish but there may still be a population of browns in the deeper holes near the Islands-Irish Run section.
