We walked further down, and I fixed my lunch and watched Dougfish swing soft hackles.Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login

It was a pretty good day with handfuls of fish caught.Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login
DSFK (it's a Drakian thang...)I was looking at the water and saw the otters playing (feeding) downstream, I watched them for a while, there were no fish rising.
Doug came down and watched from the bank and then we moved on down. He fixed his lunch after breaking off. I hit the run, lost one, caught one... streamer skunk off.Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login
Doug rerigged with soft hackles and I moved on down further, got some bumps and made a couple more connections.Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login
Doug wacked them swinging the flies. It was almost time to leave but I tried the dry fly thing but couldn't get the fussy sippers to take, it convinced that they were taking midges.
The Woolly Dougie show goes on. Good stuff. Having a like- minded companion on the river certainly adds to thefun (and safety aspect especially in the winter). Keep catching and reporting.
Like minded? Yikes!
#850s mostly sunny
with a winter storm approaching, I thought I would squeeze a trip in before things shut down.
I was hoping for some dry fly action, but the wind was wicked, and I didn't see any risers anyway.
Them some nice trouts. Fine work
Back for more in an hour.
That straight section you show in the photo is like a meat locker on cold days. Seems like sun never hits the surface there in winter..... A windy meat locker. I admire your toughness! A bit better downstream in the sun, or upriver out of the shade.Got a couple to cooperate yesterday up toward the dam, and had a couple risers downstream, but when the wind whipped up I took off. Glad you gents got out before the snows...Btw, saw a white Jeep with Roanoke handicap plates up there, but never saw the driver....
A solo trip. WB was preoccupied, Fin bailed on me.Nobody but me on the the cold cold water.And the feesh.
But I got stopped by the train before I got there.After all these years driving that route, I had never been forced to stop at that crossing.

Between the forecast and my schedule, I decided I needed to fish today.Upper 30's and about 2-3" of crusty snow.
Pacing it good for a fishy 2022
Did the taco blink an eye in the snow?
Taco has the mud and snow tires on it now. It don't care.
The snowstorm, Izzy, dumped enough snow and ice to keep me home for a couple of days and Thurs was booked so I took off and joined Dougfish on the stream.
It was a little crunchy going in, and my boots accumulated a fair amount of snow on the felt going in.
I was rigged with aa streamer from the other day so I went with that--- no dice.
That did the trick.
Dougfish stopped by on the way out.
I stayed for another hour hoping something would start up, but there wasn't much of a hatch all day.
I picked up one more fish and had a couple of grabs, but it wasn't really happening, so I split.
I had asked Dough for a beer, but he was out, with only a couple back at the truck, I told him to leave one for me.Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login
He didn't disappoint.
