I yesterday fished the Swift River for a few hours. Finishing my taxes was pretty stressful, and I didn’t have any afternoon meetings scheduled. So, I decided to take a half-day of vacation time.
I chatted with some anglers along the path, and everyone was in a great mood. It was a gloriously sunny and warm day. One of those Top 10 Fishing Days.
Fortunately, I came upon a pod of rainbows and landed about 15. I know, I know, they’re stocked fish. But, after this winter, I’m agnostic as to whether the trout are wild or stocked. Two videos up top.
I’ve heard that the stocking has been sparse thus far, as DFW I presume is working as fast as they can to stock as many spots as they can. So, I think the mode should be that you should walk along the river’s bank until you see fish. I think they’re still clumped up together this time of year.
Tight lines, everyone!
