I after work fished a very local freestone and have never seen water so low at that body of water. Thankfully, water temperatures are still doable for trout, but I am growing more concerned that this is going to be a tough summer for the fish.
I’ve noticed that the trout are hanging out more and more in riffles. I think they’re hiding there, since the usual runs and pools are getting pretty shallow. I also learned that they wanted very simple and small flies. Nothing garish, nothing too bright. So, a #18 black Sexy Walt’s was the ticket. Nothing else worked.
Landed over a dozen fall fish and panfish. And, landed some trout, too.
A Happy Friday to all!
