Beautiful day on the breeches

Today is my 40th birthday, so I took the day off to fish the Yellow Breeches.

Started by helping the PFBC stock, which was not only fun, but also a good way for a newbie to find more water to fish. Lots of help float stocking, although when I can back to fish one of the float stocked sections, I did not have much luck. Still I had a great day and really am seeing some improvement in my catching and hit detection.

Ended the day back at the same place I missed a big brown my last time out. Coaxed a nice rainbow to take my white BH bugger. I am convinced it was a combination of adequate weight, a decent cast, and a good hook set as I took the scrappy guy out of a fast riffle.

I didn't catch a ton, but enough to really enjoy. And even better I feel like I am making progress.

Not a riser to be seen today and only a few bugs coming off - light colored mayflies. And for you birders, today's treats were an Osprey near the end of the Run in Boiling Springs and a beautiful hooded merganser downstream of the closed arch bridge. Wildflowers everywhere. Spring is in full bloom.

Sounds like a great time Laurel. I am heading up on Sunday to hunt turkey and fish the YB next Monday and Tuesday. If you head back out, save a few for me.
