Keep Plugging Away

I still havent started my new job yet so im trying to get in as much fishing as i can before i start. went out today for most of it. fishing was a little better this time.with each week passing by the streamer fishing is getting closer to off the chain. the temps have been hovering around freezing for the past couple of weeks but today the sun was out which helps keep me a little warm. i came a crossed the same juvenile raccoon that has been in the same spot for the past couple of weeks. i shouldve brought some jerkey with me to give him but all i had was a butterfinger, so i gave him a chunk of that, which he seemed to enjoy. on my way back to the jeep i saw a small dead trout on the river bottom so i brought that over to his hang out spot but he mustve wondered off cause he wasnt home so i left it at his doorstep.

voodoo queen streamer

been restocking my boxes with some of these of various color combos but most of them have been the articulated version, which i actually prefer to fish.

An Old Friend

i hadnt fished with corey in a couple of years but today we had a chance to get out. we had planned on heading to wyoming but a snow storm had rolled in and the report on the roads were terrible so we just made it an afternoon thing close by. before corey showed up i walked down to the river and caught one fish but after corey did  show up neither of us got into any.

Mountain Stream

me, jerry and dbone went up into the mountains to check things out. the weather was great but the few were small, few and in between. i think the biggest was around 14" but the scenery was great. i managed a tri-fecta as well.......brown, brookie and a cuttie.

Out with Jerry

havent fished with jerry in probably a year and a half but today we were able to hit some water together. most of the rivers have been froze over for awhile but after a week of warmer weather (mid 30's)

some have opened up a bit. we hit of these mentioned sections. the fishing was decent and we got into some really solid fish, of course the bigger fish that we saw were just chases and swipes. the weather was good and so was the company

Heavy Snow and Depth Perception

I was reminded today with the heavy snow that was coming down just how much it can affect your depth perception. i seemed to be off on so many casts, more then normal, and was continually caught up in the over hanging shit that blesses are river banks. now obviously when you are casting to tight quarters your are gonna snag up from time to time but i had a really hard time getting my casts dialed in and i blame that on the heavy snow that was coming down. got into a good amount of fish but not much to hand.

Sometimes you get Skunked

and that is fine with long as its not a regular thing. i will say that sometimes though i just enjoy going out and getting some photos, even if they are not of fish. i will also say that sometimes i think that random photos are just as fun as fish photos.
