As the sun began to set the air above the stream became filled with insect swarms of egg bearing females and mating pairs. I've rarely seen so many bugs in the air, they were everywhere. I only wished I had stopped to take a video! I targeted the first riser and hooked a healthy brown using a smaller an egg sack spinner (one that I had tied based on my observations two nights previous). The Mike hooked into the biggest brown of the evening that took the spinner in water a lot of people walk through. At that point a couple guys from Maine stopped by, we chatted with them for a bit and ended up helping them target some fish. I was pleased to see one of them land a good brown on one of the spinners I have him.
Walking back to the cars we saw a few fish rising very close and I managed to land another decent rainbow at close range in the fading light, and so ended another beautiful spring day.
