Day 75

First time fishing with Jason and we started the day off early.  It was sunny but cold and the fish were not really feeding when we first started( I got a "I told you so" from my brother ), but Jason managed to land a couple of fish on the killer bug.  We fished until 11:00am and then took a break to get a drink and some food and do a little video project Jason had set up.

Round two of fishing we start just above the parking lot and work our way down to it.  Jason pulls out a few more and I finally get on the board and catch two before Jason has to leave.  Both of mine were caught on a olive RS2 and not sure if Jason was still using the killer bug or not.  He did say he caught one on a Sakasa Kabari.

Not fifteen minutes after Jason left the clouds rolled over and the hatches went off.  I sat at the same area for a couple of hours just watching blue winged olive hatches getting crushed by rising trout.  Of coarse I caught my fair share of them along the way.  It was not nearly as easy as I thought it would be, having to switch out flies half a dozen times trying to get them to take something.  The biggest thing seemed to be the twiching of the fly if I wanted to get bites.

Had a great day meeting everyone and fishing with Jason, even if most of the fish were after he left.

  1. Your blog is still awesome. Your pictures rock, and it is great that you have been catching so many great fish. Send some my way; my rod is still a virgin! Dax

    1. Thanks. Have you been fishing? I have had a great early season of fishing, including new rivers for me(blue, upper arkansas, and eagle rivers along with waterton canyon and eleven mile canyon).

    2. I have been getting out sporadically. The season opens on the 28th, so I'll be able to explore a bit more than the lower Truckee. And the lakes are melting! 72 degrees today.
