Well they're back to generating so a lower river float is possible

While daydreaming at the office, I thought I'd run up to the Smith and see
if I could steal some of Doug's beers, but he was missing in action, so I tied
on an ultrasmall black slumpbuster and hit the river while the water was down.
Might shoulda changed over to nymphing, but refused  'c;
I may have arrived a tad to late and missed the falling water bite, but I still
caught a few pune brows, and a stocker rainbow, which, by the way, is the first
bow that I've caught in this section. Almost threw it up on the bank. Maybe they'll
keep the water off on the weekend and we can get a whole day up there

This is beautiful. I'm so ready to get back up there. My first and only trip was successful and hopefully the water subsiding will correlate with my work schedule some day.

Thx for sharing Wooly

W.B. - Glad you got to hit it. I know you been missin' that river. So, we can still fish it while not generating as usual, but there's just not much time that they're not generating.....correct?

Woolly Bugger

That's it, it's always a bitch in the winter, and with the crazy generation schedule, you got to ask yourself is it worth the drive for a couple of hours

After months of work,  broken generators and high water, I finally got on the Smiff for 2 whole hours. In the cold rain.
Bammer messaged me and we met up and got to work. Streamers were the choice of the day.
We caught the water on it's last 6 inches of fall and started in. I had one roll on the fly on the second cast, a tug on the 4th and 5th cast and a decent fish on the 7th.







After that, we grinded on with little success. Bama had some bumps, I rolled a couple more and had some more tugs. One small fish with a big appetite was my only other catch. We had a scotch break and climbed out as the water rose again. Try, try again.

WB - I've done far worse than a little drive to scratch the itch.

Dougfresh - Nicely done.

Who's Bammer? The new dude? No fishes for him?

Yeah, got my skunk on. First time in a while, left a bitter taste but the scotch helped with that

I enjoy that river. It could be more scenic, that's for sure, but I like the challenge. At least you have to actually fish there instead of just throwing any random fly into a small creek and having the natives go to town on it (I enjoy this as well). I haven't been skunked there yet, but maybe I'm jinxing myself now. In my opinion, those bigger waters, with more pressure, and more water to contend with, will make you a better fisherman, and that's what I'm shooting for nowadays.

That's why I like the old special regs section, not a fan of fishing in town (Bassett) even though good fish are caught through there.

Indeed. I need to spend a little more time down that way.

Maneuvered around the generation.
Slung big stuff with old glass on old and new stretches.
Hung with some Carolina guys.
Drank.
Enjoyed a black caddis hatch.
And stuck a few meh fish.

These guys were coming off the water like crazy yesterday but only saw one fish rise about 3 times.  A little disappointing but fun to see the hatch.

Best fish of the day caught  a couple others smaller than this
