Little Fish

August 6, 2018

August 5, 2018

Rush River.  Here I come.

Long time since I gave trout fishing a shot.

Hoped to maybe catch the trico hatch.

Water low and crystal clear.

Not many risers.

Caught a real little fish on a pheasant tail.

Caught a bigger fish on a BWO a few minutes later but that was the only one I could manage.  Switched to Trico spinners and caught two other little ones.

Saw one other fisherman on my way out.  He was landing a nice sized brown on a soft-hackle, BWO.  A smoker, his lighter was on the fritz so I gave him the pack of matches I carry with me in case of emergency.  Note to self: replenish matches when I get home.  Long tippet he advised.

Cobbled together the following Haiku from the various road signs on the way.

Go Forth and Fish

Too busy working

I’m sprinting, bye bye baby

Go forth and fish more

I went up a way and found some similar water.  Tied on a BWO emerger and lengthened my tippet.  Caught 1 brook trout, busted off a real nice fish, missed a couple other strikes, and caught three others, two of which are pictured below.  When they decided to hit they were really crushing it which is always kind of fun.  Good solid fish.  Too bad I didn’t figure this out way earlier in the day.
