Summer Trout Bliss
It is truly hard to describe how amazing some of our local fisheries can shine when they are in their prime. If you are a core fly fisherman you know that special windows throughout the season present themselves and when they do you hope you are there... it is tough to just hear about it, it pulls at you. Well, as of lately is one of those periods you need to experience every so often as an angler... it keeps you searching for that next window.
Last week was a Green River Tour, this week I have launched 4 of 5 days on the South Fork for good reason... its a dam fun river to fish and guide! I hit the lower and canyon alternately and found amazing dryfly action off the main channel from the boat and on foot... just enough work to keep it interesting but very gratifying, often sight casting to large, happy trout. Hatches are holding steady with golden stones, sallies, pmd's & caddis.
Bob King & Dave and I weathered the storms on Wednesday to find a late afternoon insect explosion. In 2-3 hrs. we released 30+ trout up to 20" all on small dries.
