|Sin and Death have been defeated!|
Happy Easter everyone!
It's been a long time since I was on a small stream! Plans were made to meet Alan and Kirk on a small wild trout stream. When we made our plans we hadn't counted on the strong rains last night. When I met Alan the stream was off color and quite high.
|This freestone stream had an angry chalky look to it today!|
|Signs of spring!|
I checked the water temp it was barely 40F, not very encouraging but it did feel nice to be out especially when the sun poked through! Walking along the forest I did see a skunk cabbage here and there breaking through the earth indicating that warmer days are ahead. I started with small beadhead white bugger but thought it was a little too bright for the water and switched to a black one.
I had one brief hookup in some softer water and thought that might be it for the day. We finished up at a deep plunge pool and I thought I saw a quiet seam along the opposite bank. I had one fish follow the bugger and then turn away at the last minute but I kept at it and managed to land a pretty little wild brown. After that I called it quits and headed home content to spend some time outdoors with good friends.
