They were to start generating at 7AM so I got up early and hit the river at 6AM. I fished what has become my favorite spot,  down in North Bassett. As soon as I walked into the water I spooked a fish near where I walked in and saw large flies coming off the water with rising fish. I wish I could tell you what they were but I dont know, they were large though size 10?.  There were also a lot of very small flies coming off too.  I started out with a foam beetle with a nymph hung from it.  On my first cast I had a nice brown grab the beetle and I was thinking it could be a good day. As it turned out, it was!

  Here is the first one of the day:





Just a short time later I had this one on the line.  This time the fish took the dropper.



And for his closeup:




It really love being on the water in the  early morning.  I should probably get out early more often.  Most of time I dont get there till late morning.  With the fog and sun coming through I took time to get a few pictures.





Here is one of the better rainbows:



I caught 12 fish total by the time the water came up a 9:30AM and I was forced to leave the river. I got more rainbows than browns, probably 2 to 1.  I had a few LDRS and missed strikes too. It was one of my better days on the Smith. Not bad for a few hours. I thought about how a lot of people on here like to finish up a good day with a good cold beer.  Well, since I only had some warm PBR in the car and it was only 9:30AM I passed on that. :)

No fishing tomorrow.  They wont shut down now till 12 midnight Friday.  Hopefully they wont generate this weekend. Ill be in town for once on a weekend and will try to get out again.  Anyone want to go fishing?

I'm most likely headed to the SoHo on Sunday - with the Smith as a back up plan...

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!
