[report]Got out for an evening fish with my pal, Taco.
Been catching browns, 'bows, brooks & cutties on streamers in this creek in the last week or so.
Between moon phase, hot days, & unsettled weather (thunderstorms) all trout whose name started with the letter "B" had lockjaw this day.
Never got a touch on streamers, but scratched out a handful of cutts on dries.

Dark clouds rolling through...
Image

Cleared up pretty quickly...
Image

Representative cutt...
Image

Pulled this one out of an 18ish" wide space between two logs where the arrow is pointing.
Set the hook, yank it over top of the log all in one fell swoop...
Image

Fishing was slow.
Company was good.
Evening was beautiful.
Image

Image

That is all.

Since you know the car so well, you should have flagged me down. I had beers in the back this time.

This probably belongs in the "almost an Unlimited Almost a TR thread"

After an atypical sh*tty week at work I got home late Friday to hear those lovely five words from my wife: "You should go fishing Saturday". Of course there was the caveat that I had to be back by 3:30 but I figured I can work with that, so I did what any self respecting fisherperson would do and picked a stretch of river that I had never been on that could be floated in under five hours. With the kayak, bike, and fishing essentials loaded, I headed north at 3:45 am.

Found a bridge, unloaded everything, set up shop, drove the car to the next bridge, biked 3 miles back, locked up the bike, and pushed myself off. About 3 hours of casting, stripping, and popping I had nothing...these weren't finicky trout, these were smallmouth and pike, you know, creatures of opportunity that pounce on anything within 10 feet.

Then the clouds parted and a miracle emerged from under a log. A single, 16 inch smallie, possibly the most beautiful fish ever, for no other reason than it was the only damn slimy thing I touched all day.

The water looked good.

A couple of bucks in velvet were out and about...shot about two hundred yards away with a TG-2, so not the best

Everybody got a shot today

And then this

So I photo-whored her out

And then I celebrated my lack of achievement

Hmmm...a good trip to a promising lake.

Image

Image

A healthy one for my friend....
Image

....the skunk for me.
Image

I washed off the slight stench of skunk in the lower lake with some runner-up 12 inchers.

Image

Ah, well, it was all good despite watching too many healthy cutts ignore my flies for an afternoon in the upper.

Cheers, bitches.

Great photos
frustrated. After a few "what the fucks?" "i suck"s and a break on shore I convinced her to get back to casting. I clearly remember this question/statement "so you actually think this is fun. These fish are fucked"
