Drove on up to the Shit Ridge on Thursday afternoon and visited with my friend Al, shot the shit and drank a few beers. Gofisher came along after a while and we were entertained by the old sage for a while before heading down to the river to set-up camp. Time Temperature sign read 103, damn that's hot! After setting up the shelter we cooled off in the Jackson. Gathright dam was releasing 279 cfs @ 59 degrees, that puts a pretty decent current down the river, as a matter of fact I think that this stretch of the river fishes better with a little less water, say around 200 or 225. We rigged up with nymphs and caught a few rainbows before sunset. Hot dogs and beer for dinner, clear skies offered excellent star gazing and the fog from the river cooled the evening air.

I enjoyed the trip WB and Beetle. Thanks for having us up FatAl, it sure was a grand time. I have a couple pics I'll toss up here in a bit but it looks like Woolley and Beetle captured it pretty well. Jeez, with the Tilley on, I look like I stepped out of a photo shoot for Fly Fishing Magazine! Can't wait to hit it again guys.
