  • Cold rain and hungry fish

    Rainy days normally slow my work down enough to sneak some extra time in on the river. Pulled in the parking lot around 9:15 this morning. Most days I take a pretty good hike before getting in but today with steady rain and an empty parking lot I got in much closer to the truck than usual. It was in the high 40s and raining pretty steady, I thought about grabbing a pair of gloves but decided I had enough rain gear, etc on and left them on the seat. Started out euro nymphing and the browns were hungry. I had 2 before Id even made it out of the creek and into the river.

    Wading down stream it didnt take long to hit double digits. They were spread out and feeding. All browns except one really good looking bow.

    Retraced my steps on the way out and continued to catch fish. 90 minutes later I was back at the truck struggling to get numb fingers to work well enough to untie my boots.

    I love fishing in the rain so much. Like not torrential down pours or thunder storms but just normal rain. Lots of confidence in those situations. Something about being in nature that way, too. Id take it over a day of sunshine anytime.

    That bow is very pretty, too.

          News is out man. You are the Settles King. I guided a young man recently who said he sees you there all the time catching big browns.

            Couldn’t agree more, and it’s another excuse to buy more gear!

            One of my best memories is fishing in a cold rain with my Dad catching all the flounder we’d ever need.

              gau16 and richf7, I grew up and still today work in weather related environments so from a young age rain days were always when we went fishing. Big T, I can't predict a time yet but it's a pretty good guess I'll get out at some point tomorrow, I'll most likely be pretty close to where you normally see me, you know that spot at S*t*l*s B**dge. It is flat loaded with big browns and rainbows right now so leave that skinny tippet at home.
