With the weather being nice and all I thought I would try for a repeat of Friday.But first I had to stop in at City Beverage for the weekly beer tasting.Sweaty Betty, Blue Moon in the can, Kind Belgian Red Ale, and Brooklyn Monster Ale were the offerings of the day.The Betty was okay, the moon in the can was alright, the Kind Belgian was spot on and the Brooklyn Barleywine was a bit heavy for an early afternoon tasting.

The bright sunlight and low water conditions were also going to be a problem. Yesterday, fishing on the falling water, the river was up 6 to 8 inches higher than now. I saw some splashy rises as I approached the water and tied on a BOW dry, but the wind caused my casting to be poor and I promptly put the few risers down. The duns were getting blown all over the river as soon as they made an attempt to lift off. So the trout didn't have much time to grab them. Despite the few good long drifts that I had no trout rose to my fly.
Headed back home at dusk. Good day despite the conditions.
looks like a good day,that sweaty betty rates as one of the worst beers i have ever tasted.............
Getting out despite the wind..That's the way..but for the beer tasting on the way to fish I gotta say..
What was the bartender doing with his hands during that photo?

Keith, I fished it yesterday upstream of where you were and caught a few on midges. The wind whipped my rear. I might possibly could have adapted to the wind if it would have made it's mind up and blown in just one direction. It shifted in every direction and drove me nuts. It was nice to be back up there, though.
