I was fishing 3-4' of 3x flouro all day. Started out with the bling, pink worms, eggs etc. The second those pink items came within sight of the fish, they would spook. After that, I switch to more "natural" fodder and basically threw my fly box at them. All I did was tie tandem setups in an attempt to find something they would take. Also went through a series of streamers and baitfish imitations. The first time I fished spring creek is a good comparison to today; I was totally lousy in the super low conditions of feb/mar and then killed them whenever the stream finally had some snow melt and rain. I think I will give it another shot this week after some serious rain has fallen.

Sure, we can assiduously three-quarter our wets down stream, mend, and wait out each fly swing, which to my way of thinking, anyway, relegates to the angler to role of butler, rather than nemesis.

Looks like there's finally some water in the streams...for now, at least.

Tomorrow could be perfect in the AM and low again in the PM (at least on Elk):

The very best thing you can do to convey trustworthiness is be genuine. And if you can't, just fake it.

I'm kind of curious of Pacofranciso's first picture - why is it that his thumb and index finger look almost as big as the reell? It makes the fish look to be about 11" long - I'm not demeaning the picture or fish just trying to understand the size relationship of his fingers to the reel and cork grip - looks funky like it is a micro rod and reel.

Dude, look at his paws in the second picture. Meat hooks!

Ran into Bing today on 20 Mile. Great to meet you man!

Hey we got out of there just in time. We got across a few times as the water was rising but we had to climb the west bank and walk up to Route 20 and around. I think a lot of people got stuck there today. Hopefully everybody is safe.

How did you do? Did you get out before the blow out?

Was good to meet you too, always nice to meet other board members.

We crossed right as it was still coming up.

About 6 of us mule trained across and made it. Scared the heck out of us it came up real fast.

Not sure what the fellas in hip boots below us did.
Hope everyone made it out safe.

The Miles fished nice this morning. Hit 16 at day light and swung up 2 in less than 1/2 hour. Initially they were slamming big white streamers. 16 quickly got too crowded for my pleasure. Moved over to the upper 20. Lower 20 was jammed with folks. Much quieter on the mid and upper. Everything was working on 20. If you put it in front of them they were hitting it. Caught them on streamers, eggs, and nymphs on 20. Nice flow and stain. Started raining hard again by 1:00 and called it a day. Todays conditions were ideal IMO. Be safe out there this week. Headed to MI for steelhead on the PM and kings on the Muskegon this week. Should be fun.
