A new species

Got invited to go out and target some wipers. although the fishing was slow i did manage to land one so i was pretty stoked about that. there were a few more caught in the group as well but i guess it is also still a little early for them so i am looking forward to getting after them again in the near future. the weather was decent but a storm was brewing as we were leaving.

Getting after them

Still not sure what to expect on our local waters with run off still going on. most everything is still really high and murky and occasionally the flows will be dropped in a particular section but it will still be muddy. i drove to 3 different sections the other day and did find one that i hadnt fished in over a year the the flows were up but the water clarity was good. i had only planned on fishing for maybe a couple of hours but with each bend there continued to be good looking water above so it was hard to stop. the fishing was fairly slow. i did get into a dozen or so fish and managed to land 3 of them. a white streamer got a little attention but when i switched to olive it picked up.

A full day on the water

Logun and Aaron were in town for the fly fishing or tying expo, cant remember which. the 3 of us and dbone went to try our hand at some stillwater. the wind cooked all day and for the first hour and a half it poured on us, making a very cold morning. after the rain finally stopped the sun, mixed with some clouds, blessed us for the rest of the day. unfortunately the wind did not let up. dbone had to leave early and shortly after he left we chose to move on since the lake hadnt produced anything for almost 2 hours. we made the drive to some moving water to finish out our day. we all got into some fish but i ended up with the only catch. it was the first time meeting aaron, he's a stand up dude.

Back at it with the streamers

After work i headed to the river. the flows dropped pretty low but the last time i had checked it was to muddy. well its still murky but fishable. it wasnt spectacular but i did get into a few fish and landed 3. i fished an olive/yellow voodoo queen for the couple of hours that i was there.
