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. 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.
