Window of Opportunity (TR)

Nymph fishing is a noble pursuit but it’s time to see what dries have to offer so I head to a place (not THAT PLACE) where skwalas should be out and about, maybe a March Brown or two, and it won’t cost me more that a quarter tank of gas.

They’re calling for showers/thunderstorms but what do they know (a lot, as it turns out)

Image

The rain we’ve been getting the past couple days frosted the tops over here

Image


Supposed to be decent; may have to bring the kayak over here some time

Image


This will be legal in 10 days and there are some nice fish up in this stretch

Image

Image


Spot a dozen of these

Image


No elk today but lots of deer

Image


This is where things get interesting

Image


Water is up and chilly but clear; they may not be looking up right away, but patience is a virtue, yes?

Image

Image

Image


Not much happening early on but the sun pops in and out between showers/thunderstorms and warms things up a bit. Bugs get active (sorry for the blurry pic but the little shit wouldn’t hold still for a decent pic)

Image

The window opens up

Image

And foam is back on the menu

Image


It stays relatively busy for about an hour; not tight to the bank but definitely in the softer stuff

Image

Image

And then it shuts down. March Browns come out but no one seems interested; give it another week and things should pick up. Give it 10 days and the big bugs may be out.

Image


Pretty spread

Image


Pretty clouds

Image


Pretty much done
