Sunny 55* at the start...

Al gave the heads up on the spigot being tightened on the damn dam yesterday and today.

It was late when I saw the notice, but not having anything better to do I rode on up for an hour and a half of fishing. The sun was well behind the ridge when I got on the water and it looked cold and uninviting. The rod was rigged with a dry, so I through the BWO into the run, but nothing came of that.

I switched over to nymphing and worked the usual spots, but that wasn't working either so when I broke off that rig in the rhodos, I tied on a streamer and saw an aggressive brown chase it down and smash it.

after that I lost the fly on a snag and I din't have another small streamer with me.

That was the only fish to hand that evening. The temps plummeted after sunset and it was in the 30s when I got back to the car. I was great to be out on the "Home Waters" once again.

I caught 3, lost one, stung one and one missed through there.
You're welcome.

That's still stout for most mortals.

I'm no longer nimble like you young guys but even back in my prime anything above 150 kept me spending more time balancing then fishing.  Don't go in much above your knees and use a wading staff. Find some wide spots and you are ok. This time of the year I recommend going with someone else just in case you take a dunking - hypothermia will kill you even if you don't drown.
