Had a day off to get out and go fishing. I am itching to get my boat out on the open water but the cold nights have prevented the ice from melting, so I had to pull out the fly rod and head to the river. I met up with my friend Mikey Fries, he is the person who taught me how to fly-fish, so It always nice to spend the day beside him Hookin’ fish.
Plus, there is just something incredibly relaxing about walking a river. There are tons to look at; fish, bugs, birds, deer, water , and the sounds of the river flowing puts me right where I need to be- At Ease. We had a little storm blow in on us it was pretty windy and partly cloudy. The fishing was steady with little nymphs, Stoneflys, copper john, mini Bietis and phesient tails. I also got one Brownie on a black sculpin and turned a couple other bigger fish. We each caught a few browns and a bunch of whitefish . Fries also got a nice little spring bow who is most likely getting ready to spawn here soon. The Highlight of my day was catching a nice little brown that had the most Red tail I have seen. Super cool looking fish.
