Solo

The water had dropped enough for me to give it a shot. the water was still higher then i like and wading was a little challenge but it was fine. busy couple of hours with a streamer, only landed 3 but man did i get into a lot of fish, they just wouldnt commit. i also saw some really big fish, but of course those big fish would just swirl and chase me.

Boo Yah!

Today was a good day. i woke up 40 minutes late and i missed my ride, guess they didnt want to wait an hour for me, but they were nice enough to wait at the bridge for me. the water was in great shape but the weather was a bit wet. it rained on us for about the first 3 hours and then finally the sun came out to dry us out a little. the fishing started a little slow but the second half of the day picked up nicely. we had a 26, a 24, 23, a couple of 20's and a handful of 17 to 19 inch fish. all in all it was a pretty damn good day.

The canyon

Hit the canyon for a couple of hours. saw a lot of fish including a lot of big fish, but only landed 3 fish in the mid teens range. the water was still a tad high so it made for some really slow wading.

Perfect weather

went out for a couple of hours in a slight drizzle. the temps were comfortable and i only got a little bit wet. the water is still way low but it shouldnt be to much longer. caught one skinny buck

First fall hike of the year

Took a solo trip to the mountains for some fresh air and cardio, well and of course fishing. it snowed the night before so there was a small layer on the ground and the chill that occompanied the snow will take some getting used to. i think wet wading is over for the year. it took me 2hrs to get to the first lake i was gonna fish. i managed a few nice brookies out of the lake but man my fingers hurt so damn bad from the cold. i need to start remembering my gloves i guess. after i fished around it i continued up the trail to the next lake, although i had hoped to see all the lakes, that did not happen as the 2nd lake was the largest and just ran out of time. the 2nd lake surrendered a few tiger trout, a couple of them were real nice, and a cuttie. i did see a few other hikers passing by but other then those few, it was extremely quiet and peaceful in the area. my back and shoulders were on fire and i didnt have enough pain pills so i pulled chocks at 2:04






















pm and made my way back to the trailhead
