Since the beginning of March my two days off, Wednesday and Thursday, have been the worst days of the week, weather wise. This week seems to be no exception as 2 inches of rain are on the way. To be honest, I am really getting sick of the current weather pattern. It seems I just have to get out there and fish through it, which I did today.
Streamers were fishing really well. My guess is the area got visit from the hatchery truck in the last few days. Top fly was a white Marabou streamer, but the old Mickey Finn was a close second.
I did get a few fish on nymphs as well, but the action was not as hot and heavy as the streamer fishing. I did get a nice Tiger trout which I retained for lunch. On my way out I did some exploring and found a few ramps growing.
After being out in the weather today for a few hours I got home and cooked my trout. I just baked him with some spinach and a chopped up ramp. The fresh fish hit the spot. I also made a hot cup of coffee.
Despite the sub-par weather today, it was a pretty good fishing day. I beat the heavy rain by about an hour, and I got a bunch of hungry hatchery fish. As I am writing this post it is raining harder out, and I am sure the rivers will be up by tomorrow morning. So I am sitting inside enjoying the last of my coffee trying to plan my next outing. I can only hope the weather improves during my two days off, so I can do some exploring.
