FLY FISHING REPORT BY BAJA ON THE FLY
Oct. 15, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing Report:
The Magdalena Bay fly fishing area had clear skies and no wind. That’s something different. The past few weeks seem like a broken record of threatening weather. The few fishing boats have been out at Magdalena Bay this week found some warm water which was holding a few dorado and yellowfin tuna.
No one was really targeting the marlin or wahoo, but there were rumors of some of both being spotted at the lower end of the Thetis bank. Before the storms hit, several yachts found enough action to get their scores up in the double digits; hopefully those fish are still hanging out and can be located again.
Fly fishing inside the Magdalena Bay esteros, slim picking persisted, with cabrilla, a few corvina and even fewer grouper. There was a flurry of action under the bridge at the entrance to San Carlos at gray light several days last week producing a pretty good corvina bite for about an hour each morning.
Magdalena Bay water temperature was 70-81 degrees; Air temperature 68-82; Conditions clear.
