In the Evening

Stayed at work late and then had to get Alanna from school so i didnt get on the water till about 5:30 this evening. it was a beautiful evening and the water  looked perfect. it started off slow but picked up a bit towards the end. i caught one fish that had recently, either eaten some thing big or a few of something. the fish had a big knot towards the front of its belly. ended up netting 4 fish so it wasnt to bad of a short evening.

My in laws were in town for the funeral and my father-in-law wanted to see fly fishing so i took him out in the morning for a short hour. he just walked along the bank and watched. i landed 2 fish and then we headed back home. the end.

A Little Color

Me and corey hit some water. most of the waters had a stain to them but we did find a section that was fishable and nobody there yet. we chose that spot but it didnt fish very well. im certain had the waters been clearer and probably would have done a lot better. we got up above 2 little feeder streams and the water cleared right up. apparently we should have fished the clearer upper section.

After my Dr. appt i headed off to the river with thoughts of the water being up a bit from all the warm weather and a little stain as well. the water clarity was perfect in my book but was disappointed to see that the water level was actually down and down a lot more then i wouldve expected. almost seemed like summer flows and there was a bit of an algae problem as well. bummer! only moved 4 fish but ended up with one.

My new company sent me to Hartford, Connecticut for a weeks worth of training. unfortunately mon-thurs were full days but friday we were let go around 1:30, so knowing this in advance i made sure that all my gear was already in the car. as soon as we were done i drove straight over to the river. its a good looking river in some spots but most of what i saw on the drive up, was wide and slow. this dude that follows me on instagram is from the Hartford area so he was kind enough to point me in the right direction. i was only on the river for about 3 hours but was able to get into a few fish vut only landed 1. doesnt matter to me as long as i got 1 so i could say that ive caught fish in Connecticut now.
