Where did you fish today? (This week?)

I was fishing the stream shown in my earlier photo today, catching a lot of hybrid bluegill, which were very aggressive to the dry fly. Suddenly, things completely deadened. I know that usually means a predator (other than me) is in the water, so I decided to hop out and go to another spot upstream. As I walked towards shore, there was a massive snapping turtle resting in about a foot of water about 4 feet in front of me. It reminded me that I should always be looking down when walking the stream.

My wife was out of town for over a week. I took advantage and fished 6 out of the last 7 days. I fished a mountain lake and several different stretches of three different rivers. I explored some new water, put a few miles on my wading boots, caught lots of trout, and never had to put on a nymph (except on the lake). It was a good week.

One stop along the way, looking up;


I took that from right beside the boat then walked up to the big tree and shot one downstream.


Giving them a rest for a while now, I've been out every third day since the end of June. I figure 48 hours between my visits gives even the ones that got away time to forgive and forget.

I failed to carry the camera as the day went on into evening and I another ten miles into it but I did snap a shot of a favorite spot on the drive home.

I got out to the Nahe River twice this past week. It was the first time I have ever tried Euro Nymphing and it wasn’t until the second outing that I felt I was getting the hang of it. The Contact II is a fantastic rod and when I get the tippet length and weight of fly correct I can really feel the fly ticking along the bottom of the stream. However, I am starting to think there are no trout in this little stretch of the river. Caught several Döbel (chubs) and one type loach, but no trout. I will try the Euro method on a different stretch next time. On the plus side, I did see a few reasons to return to this location, but with a 7wt rod….these two might have been a bit much for a 2wt Euro rod. 7EA81B33-DEF7-4EA6-9E79-FABBB954E687.jpeg

Peaceful morning, interrupted only by trout rising. Though the water is a bit low, Cool evening temps have brought water temps down in the low 60s. The trout were active and healthy. 8-for-8 now in my trout-a-month mission.

I fished a stream in the Bighorns which shall remain nameless. Not a lot of fish but they were big. I started the morning out nymphing. I took a few on the BFM (black brassie) and about noon I started seeing caddis in the air and fish rising. An Elk Hair Caddis produced nothing so I switched to a tan CDC loop wing emerger. That did the trick.

One was pretty close to 20" and put up a good fight. I'm glad I had my 5 weight.

This past week I went on a little road trip through Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Here’s some pictures of the highlights. I would love to have gotten more pictures of the scenery, but the smoke was pretty bad the majority of the trip.
