well.... i went to the spot that i had previously mentioned and there were swimmers there.... so i went to a different spot....
there's a fire near town right now.... it was on my way to that fishing spot.... i took a coule photos:
this helicopter was getting water right from the river.... the very river that i was gonna be fishing in... it was pretty cool to see up close:
now for some scenics:
such awesome water..... you could see the fish flashing in the water... some huge suckers in there too.... they'd be fun to foul hook...
oh my.... what a nice section....:
some more nice water...:
there weren't much bugs in the air and the fish would only rise every 5 or 10 minutes... but they were looking up. i'd cast and i'd see them come up from below just to turn away at the last millisecond... i probably said "cmon cmon cmon DANG" a dozen times....
but not all fish turned away from my offerings... :
a little guy. maybe 10 inches:
the following fish were all over 15 inches... all came up for a size 14 elk hair caddis.... supposed to mimic spruce moths this time of year...
i know, i know... they all look the same. sort of:
this was the biggest. 17 incher:
not bad for 35 minutes of fishing.
