I waited too long to go hit this section of river.
A front came through and cooled things off a bit, so I got to take it easy hitting the road, and grabbed some machacado and horchata.
Being a few miles from the headwaters, I figured it would be skinny, but there was even less to it than I expected
Don't matter, the fish were plentiful, even though the top half was all sunfish,
And then the bass showed up hungry, and some were quite pretty
A little river can still cut big rocks
After fishing down a long curved section, I had a long straight walk back to the car. It was a little unnerving to not see my car until I was almost back to it. (wasn't 100% confident in the legality of my parking spot)
But, I decided I wasn't done yet, grabbed two beers, and hit the section upstream from the crossing I parked at. The best bass of the day was all of 80' from the car.
That ended up in a big swimmin' hole pool pretty quick, but was a gorgeous little section, and still produced 30 fish or so.
Even though I did break off a 5lb+ catfish, it was still a damn fine day of head clearin'. 80+ on a 3wt is a fine time.
