I tried one spot right under the bridge and I started off with a stimulator. The day was a bit windy which made for some interesting casts but even the wind teaches me lessons on how to be a better fly fisher.
|matched the hatch a bit too late|
Last but not least I pulled out the old thin mint. It and woolly buggers in general were not on the list but I figured why not?! It also did not produce. Another fly i tied on but did not produce was a brownstone #6 because it really resembled something I saw on a rock walking over there. On my walk back to the car i found another one. upon closer inspection, it seemed that this "thing" was dried up and the top was missing. I took that to mean that something (possibly a mayfly?) had hatched out of this a few days or weeks earlier. It was still cool to compare the two.
On the way back to the car I had an older lady take a picture of me all waded up for the Facebook. An old man walked up with a big grin on his face after I had taken the picture and asked, "Aren't you supposed to have a big fish in that picture?" to which i responded, "Catch and release!" He didn't have to know I got skunked! haha
Well anyway, that was my first experience on the lower sac. I fished from about 3-5 with no results and I also forgot to take a panoramic picture for you guys which i have been doing on my other posts but I did take this one for your enjoyment.
This trip concluded my fish catching streak but it was still a good time. A bit of an update, spring is in the air but in the valley it's already summer! the air is warming up and that means that my winter season is up and a winter report will be coming soon.
