Regular Season Wrap

Post by Deerhawk » Thu Nov 02, 2017 8:17 am

It was the last day of regular season on Tuesday. There are still opp's out there... 2 to 4 hours away, that I can access if I really get jonesed out, but the hood is essentially closed for business for the next 7 months, give or take.
I'm a Trout guy...5 WT, Dry for the most part... but I've been known to keep company with some nymphs now and again. I also don't rule out Angling below the surface. I don't bother much with the "tug of big fish"...I know, I know, I can hear the Steelies and Salmos groan and I shake my head when I see them rolling their marbles.
"What's wrong with him?"
I grew up back East, New England to be exact. I had my fill of Muskies, big Picks, Blues from the jetty in Hyannisport, Buckets that Mom would fry up, baby Tarps in Fla 40+ years ago...and all before it was the "cool thang to do"...nuff said.
I went back and forth as to the "where"... ended up on the Wilson this afternoon for a couple of hours. It was more about getting the fark outta Dodge than trying to land that last slab, it was more about remembering to breathe, to drink in the surroundings, to establish that cornerstone of connection to help get to the end of May.
Some tie to that end, I don't... it's not in my DNA... yet. There was an exceptional Caddis hatch about, but the 25,000 cfs "flood" of 8 days ago scoured everything, cut a ton of new channels, and took 90% of the residents on an all expense paid vacation to Tillamook, from which they have not returned.
Snow levels are dropping in the Cascades as we begin to build a base, I have to dig out the chain box and make room for it in the mutha shit. Clocks go back Sunday... that's all I got

more later...
