"Come and join the party, dressed to kill..."

J and I were itching to get out. Big streams were bloooown out.

We headed to a local that has fished well when flush with water. Always runs clear. Might knock you on your ass, but good to go.

A little chilly to start.

But it is an east sloper, and the sun kissed the water and us from the get go.

We were catching, but it was hard fishing. We mainly fished the seams, back eddies, softer water. And you had to get the nymph down, fast. Tungsten time. If I caught 10, J caught 20.

I only reached for my net once, and watched the best fish wriggle off at my feet. Most fish did the same.

Meh. I was having a good time.

We fished up to the approach of the "big" falls by 1pm and hiked back down to the truck. The sun on our faces, a bounce in our steps.

Nice report. Glad to see someone was able to fish after these downpours. But, beer and coconut....... don't think so.


Dougfish

That beer is shockingly good.You boyz need to sleep around on your regular brews.

Jacob has already bitched me out for pimping the stream out before.

Success! Good work, dudes.

When you add the video from YouTube, how are you posting the link? The last couple times I've tried it hasn't worked....or, at least, the method I've used in the past isn't working.....thanks.

Rain rain rain.  Needed to get out Saturday morning after a week with kids not sleeping, one getting the stomach bug, me getting the stomach bug from them, and busy work week on top of it. Decided to hit a stream in our backyard that half of the board and TU knows about because of Doug (he is a nicer guy than me).  Stream can take a load of water and still produce.  Lots of plungy pools with back eddys and pocket water. Really enjoy high water on this stream because it gives you a good shot at some of the nicer fish on this stream.  Fishing was slow but not bad.  LDR'd some decent fish.  Brought one fun sized one to hand. Can't beat the February day though.  Did almost go swimming though when and slipped off a 80 degree rock that was under water and went into a 4 ft pool.  Luckily I caught myself on the ledge of the rock with my hands.  Some water in the waders, 1911 needed stripped and relubed, and Cellphone and Wallet transferred to Doug's pack.

Good colors on most of the fish.

And for all the pink weenie haters, I pulled apart a leaf pack in the tail end of a pool and this guy was in the leaf pack still alive.

The road going up this stream is worse and worse every time.  It has eaten a few oil pans and bumpers I'm sure.

I just copy the video url and paste it into the message body. Don't use the link tool.

My favorite The Who song, btw.

In what world is this oligchaeta pink?!?!?  Sure it was alive, there are several kinds of aquatic and semi-aquatic worms, but none of them are bright pink, nor do they have a weighted bead for a head!!!!!!

The weenie flies I have seen are nothing more than counterfeit powerbait without the taste.

I trust you skewered the little wriggler on a bare hook, and went au naturel.  Wait, let me guess!  You've never mounted a live worm on a hook?

I've seen lots of worms alive and well lately. Pink weenies, green weenies, etc....I have some, know they work, or have heard they work, but have yet to tie one on. Soon, maybe....

Where the hell is all of the rhodo?  Very nice trip for February.

Duder, lots of Kalmia, lots of native azalea.

Rhodo is up higher.

One of these days I'll figure out the reasons for this distribution.

Or not. :Dance

I would suspect soil PH is a factor both in overall canopy, and the Rhodo itself.
