I tried to get out of the drive yesterday to go fishing but got stuck. Today I finally did get out and fished for 3 hours, till my feet started getting numb.

I started out with my usual setup, a #14 nymph and #20 or #22 midge dropper. I fished areas where I can normally get a brown or two but couldn't get a strike so I pretty much decided to target the stocked rainbows by fishing in and just below the fast water.  I ended up catching 3, LDRed 3 others and had a lot of hits that I completely missed.  I was getting a lot of strikes on the swing and also while just letting my fly sit for a minute downstream before I made another cast.

Used a green wooly bugger and #18 beadhead nymph as a dropper.

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!

I left it at home and figured I would just use the iphone.  BUT.... when I got there I realized I left the iphone at home too.

My best dry fly fish ever came on a no camera day,  it can be good luck

Stalk softly and carry a green stick.

At least you got out!  How much snow did ya'll end up with?  I have about decided that Beetle and Flatlander must have frozen to death.

We got about a foot and a half here in Fieldale.  Its melting fast though.

Pretty much the same results as yesterday.  Generation went an hour longer though so I only fished 2 hours. I took the camera this time. I had competition though today.  This bird came up and to about 10 feet away from me.  Ive seen these birds on the river many times but they have never gotten this close.  Maybe they recognized me since Im down there so much :)
