Title: Trouts are for lovers
Post by: terrestrial on July 12, 2021, 11:14:12 AM
Not much fishing has been had the past few months due to work, life, and other bullshit like that. So, when the wife said that the dog needed to get out of the house for awhile, I took one for the team and took him out.

Usually when I fish, I know the night before that I'm going and have ample time to study all the details (like it matters) of where I'm going, stream conditions, etc. Not today. The dog and I packed up and hit the road before she could change her mind and tag along with us.

I hit the road out of shittown northbound  still unsure where I would land. I usually try to keep day trips to 1.5hr or so drive to self justify the fishing/drive time ratio. This section of creek barely fits inside my drive radius and has been interesting to me for awhile. Glad I picked it as we didn't run into anyone else while we were there.

Doggo usually runs face first into whatever water he can find. He'll enjoy the hell out of it for about 3 minutes, and then is back to doing doggo shit on dry ground. He doesn't give a damn about fish, but he usually stays within sight and doesn't high hole me as I move upstream.

I started with a dry/dropper and landed a fingerling brown. Promising. But no love was being had on the dry. So I switched over to my ghetto-redneck version of euro nymphing for the rest of the day. I found cookie-cutter rainbows in just about every good hole the rest of the afternoon. Rainbows are kinda like fat girls, good when you haven't had any in awhile, and better than nothing at all.

Then finally, what I came for. I cast my redneck euro rig into the head of a pool, let the stonefly get to the bottom, and dredged back out. A couple of good casts with no results. One last cast paid off and I'm still not sure why it was different than the rest, but I'll take it.

Not sure that this warranted a separate post.

Finally got out again and hit up a sister stream to the first TR from back in July. Had an excellent day sight fishing to risers. A good change of pace from Chuck n duck nymphing and streamer fishing. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Rainbows don't suck so bad when they eat a dry fly, but brownies are always the shit. Finished the day with another good bourbon purchase to boot.
