I got out on the river this morning before sun up again to try and get some redemption for the other day with Nick. I tied up some streamers yesterday with crayfish colors in a pattern I borrowed from Andy Burke. The first fish this morning was a nice brown that lept clean out of the water for my fly. The second fish was an 18 inch rainbow that tried to wrap himself around my legs. In an attempt to keep that from happening I tried to horse him away from me and my rod broke. Luckily Cabelas will take back anything and I got a new rod out of the deal. I take pretty good care of my rods but this break may well be the product of a bullet head streamer hitting the rod one to many times. All in all a pretty good hour but the clouds rolled in and stayed until 10am, could have been a really good day. Some pics from today.
Finally got some fish in the net today, its been a while. The water is crystal clear right now due to the flows being down. I landed 7 fish today including this nice brown and had another 5 or so bump and run. Usually out at pyramid by now but its been so slow out there that fishing the river sounds pretty good.
