Default JB 8/16 Baby Catching Afternoon

Made a solo trip to JB today, pretty weather, decent stain, and few anglers in the river when I arrived and only saw 3 or 4 the entire time I was there. Started off below the stairs around 3pm and eventually made my way all the way around the island and above before I headed out around 7. Began with a bow and baby brown in first 10 minutes, so I thought cool gonna be a good day then I went in a dry spell for about 45 minutes. Swapped flies quite a bit in between and finally got it going with regular pheasant tails and Frenchies. Caught a 15 ish inch brown that I believe Dillon caught about 1.5 months ago which was the highlight of the day. Ended the day with 19 to hand about an even mix browns and bows. The odd thing about today was I only caught 5 fish above 8 inches, caught 8 little browns about 4 inches each and 6 bows 5 inches or less. Catching such small fish gave me some practice in setting the hook softer, because anyone who's fished with me knows I'll send a few small fish flying each trip lol. Since I realized everything I caught was on the small side I started being a bit more gentle and I was able to land most of my takes. Caught fish on a variety of flies, Walts worms, frenchies, pheasant tails, tungsten torpedoes(RScott variety), prince nymph but the only constant was the torpedos late evening when I believe BWO was coming off.

Haha. I've thought about bringing a baseball glove when I go out fishing with you!
Sounds like you had a great day.

Yea I'll probably never completely get away from the hard sets, since I do still spin fish for bass and crappie in spring and fall. Baseball glove might help but you better be on the warning track!!

That's awesome. Getting 19 and a brown like that in such busy waters is impressive.

Also I don't know if this is a result of the recent drownings on the river, but this is posted at JB on the Barnwell Rd side now.

That sign is very vague...but if they will try to inforce this for all persons on the river that is complete and utter bollocks. Just found out another one died at Settles today. I don't want to be insincere but these kids are going to ruin it for the rest of us.
