2018 – 1

Finally a day well above freezing and no other obligations to keep me down. The slimy hooker had been up to the river the other day and reported a very tough day with the lower reaches not producing any fish at all, very discouraging to say the least. Water temperatures are running below 40, and we suspect that the fish are literally chillin’.
Waited a bit for the morning chill to wear off then headed up the road, most of the snow has melted off but there is still plenty on the shaded north slopes.

I was the only one out enjoying the bright warm partly cloudy day. I hiked in on the snow covered trails and fished the lower reach. I was a very discouraging two hours. Not a bump or follow, didn’t see any fish at all. Those high summer temps with the low flow must have had a disastrous effect on the fish population. By contrast, in previous years, we were catching many fish in the 20 inch range. It may take years for this river to heal.

Working up to the middle section I was saddened to see this DSFK.

Image

Nothing came to hand on this section either.

Image

The thaw continues.

Image

Moved on up the road and dropped in to a favorite run. Worked it hard to the end and then came back and rigged up dirty and did it again, the extra weight got the job done and the first fish of 2018 came to hand. Despite its diminutive size I was happy to finally hook up.

Image

The activity started to heat up and I caught a number in quick succession.

After wearing out that spot I hiked in for one more chance at the end of the day. I had an evening date so I needed to leave before sunset. I got into the best fish of the day and it was difficult to have to leave.
