Their husbands are going to have to step it up if they want to keep up with Julie and Nell. The ladies did well today fishing dry flies and catching some nice wild brown trout, even though the fishing was a bit slow at times. Nell did an excellent job her first time out with a fly rod. And Julie did really well chasing a fish down the river as it ran out in the current. She fought it to the bank and into the net. Nice!
We are experiencing some of the best dry fly fishing of the season right now. I’m looking forward to getting my clients on some nice fish.
I caught some fairly large brook trout on the East River today. The upper river was flowing pretty good and was a little stained. It took some streamer action to move fish.
Mike fished a size 10 Green Drake dry fly for nearly 5 hours solid today and caught a lot of nice fish. It was an excellent day of dry fly fishing!
Chris got this really nice rainbow trout during the Green Drake hatch today. The hatch started late but the Drakes and PMDs came off in pretty good numbers by about noon.
Julie and Stacey both did well today on the East River nymphing early and throwing dry flies later in the morning. The hatches kicked in late and were spotty, but they both caught fish on dry flies during the PMD and Green Drake hatch. Thanks for a fun day ladies!
Had a really fun day with Brian and Marcella today fishing big dry flies on a small creek. It was their first day out this season and they both did great. Now they’re ready for summer!
The small creeks are really fishing well now with some very good dry fly action. This is a great time to get out there with short rods and big dry flies.
Small creek fishing has really turned on now. I headed up to the mountains yesterday to throw dry flies on one of my favorite small streams. And I met a new friend. We pretty much scared the crap out of each other on the river.
More fun on the Taylor River with Matt, Walt, and Roger. I really enjoyed it guys!
