Default Life Is Good

Fished with a friend yesterday and this morning. I let him have holes first and gave him pointers on where to cast and what to use. His wife revoked his "Man Pass" at noon today and I was left to flounder and trudge through the snow alone this afternoon. 37 trout later and my legs are really tired and my back is killing me I am happy and satisfied. Very good opening weekend.

rain and warm temps are forecasted for my area so went out for 2 hours today....12 to hand.

The rain and overnight temps above freezing will cause some serious run off.

Must be nice, I'm stuck tying a few thousand flies and doing stuff here to get ready for opening weekend. Nice fish by the way.

Andy Kurth and I fished today. The major rain and runoff made it hard to find clean water today.

We had to do some serious searching for clean water but it paid off and we fished a nice long stretch.
We both got about a dozen to hand. We each lost about another dozen.

The trout just weren't hitting it. They were timid and only rolling on it or mouthing it.

Andy and I each caught one brookie and the rest were browns.

Some were right up in the fast water. The water temp was 48.

Hi Len,

Thanks for sharing your pleasure. It is getting so I know that stream from your pictures. As Molly once said to Fibber, You are a lucky man McGee.

Fished with my friend Bruce Ristow this morning. He talked me in to going to an area with lunker structures. I dislike lunkers and did not expect much and I was not surprised when we caught 6 trout between us in the silted in made made Petting Zoos.
We changed locations and went after some tiny stream brookies. We each caught about 15.

Stopped in on the way home at one of my favorite streams and picked another 15 or so.

None were big and the stream is know for the light colored browns.

Fished with my buddy Bruce for 4 hours this morning.
Early the action was slow due to cold water. Water temp was 38.
When the sun came up we did better in shallow slow areas with
the sun warming the water. We each had approximately 15 to hand.
