|a pocket water brown|
With the hot dry weather lately, I figured the fish might be up in the faster moving, more oxygenated water so I headed to a stretch of pocket water that I have wanted to explore but hadn't until last night.
My hunch proved accurate as I worked up through the faster water, I found fish in almost all the pockets like the one pictured to the left. The wading was a bit slippery but I managed to stay mostly upright and in two hours I had found close to a dozen fish. Some took a Walt's Worm and the rest a small DDT nymph. Hopefully the 2 inches of rain predicted will bring some new life to our local streams.
