A few hours with Jerry

Jerry was on limited time so instead of making a lengthy drive we just fished a little local water. the fishing sucked, didnt move a single fish with a streamer, jerry switched to a nymph and caught 1 smal whitey. blah!

A slow time of season

But i did mustered a couple of hours a few days ago. the river has done some changing since the last time i fished this section (pre run off). the fishing again was slow with the streamers but i did manage a fish or two.

A short day with Chris and Jerry

Hit some familiar water with jerry and chris. i handt fished with chris in  about a year. the weather was perfect and the flows were a little low and the fising did not go very well at all. i threw streamers, chris nymphed and jerry did both. nymphing got most of the fish. some some really nice deer rubs as well

The big water

Headed to some big water with some of the boys. me and jake threw streamers while the others nymphed. it was pretty even in the catch department but the bigger fish came from the nymphs. the temps were pretty nice for a november day but the wind got brutal.

For a few hours

The wife had some stuff to do so i was able to disappear for a few. as i was working up river i ran into a land owner as he was checking his fences. a very nice old man who talked my ear off for about a half an hour. i fished up to a small river diversion. i did move a good number of fish on my streamer but only mustered 3. on the way out someones groceries were floating in the river so i loaded up the net with packs of carrots and ranch dressing, orange juice, chip bags, but i did not grab the cauliflower

A little reckon

headed down to the river for a short few to see if maybe the fish were off the redds yet. for the most part yes but there were still a couple on them. the river has gone thru some changes since the spawn started so there are

some new holes to fish

Uintas are done for the Year

Was hoping to get in one more fishing trip to the mountains before everything froze over. i picked a lower uinta elevation lake to up my chances of open water. looks like i was a weekend to late. after the long drive up the very rocky dirt road and a short hike in, i got there and the lake was froze over 100 percent. on the way in a came acrossed 2 sets of mountain lion tracks which put me on edge a little bit. i had a quick lunch then headed back to the jeep.  on the way back home i stopped by a more local lake and fished for about an hour with no love. the only positive on the day was that on the way out from the local lake i saw 7 bucks all along that road.

Long time no fish

Got a call from Jerry last week to fish, we hadn't fished together in a couple of years so it was good to see him again. we did some still water and although it wasn't spectacular, it wasn't terrible either. the wind was kickin from the  time we got out of the jeep to the time we got back in it. it made for some tough casting and made it awfully hard to to a hold of the line while stripping streamers. we both were rigged up with 2 rods, one with a streamer and sink line and the other for nymphing chironomids. the only one that produced was the streamers. we ended up with 10 fish to hand between the 2 of us and both had some missed opportunities as well. all in all is was a pretty decent day.
