Rainy Day Success
 
Managed to get a day off from work, so I decided I should probably hit the trout waters. Went to a stretch that I have never fished, but I knew there are good fish lurking. (I saw a rainbow that was a 2 footer) Started off pounding the bottom with a couple of nymphs and picked up a few. Started to see a few risers, so I switched over to a #16 BWO with a #20 brassie dropper. Picked up my best two fish on this combo. Finally my soaking clothes forced me back to the car.

Nice fish, and looks like great place TO fish! Is that an Orvis Encounter reel on your Scott?

all of the browns I fish are wild, hardly any browns get stocked in SD, just rainbows. And as for the reel, it's a Cabela's RLS II

I've had PLENTY of good days in the rain! So long as it's not downpouring I keep fishing and catching just like normal...I guess the fish don't know when it's raining. Looks like a nice day out, glad you got to enjoy it!
