The temperature this morning was 17 degrees this morning so I decided to wait a few hours before hitting the creek. At my arrival, I noticed all parking lots were almost at capacity up and down the creek. Everyone is ready for spring and out to enjoy it.
I checked out the lower sections and the action was spotty at best. I saw a few fish caught but nothing exciting.
I headed upstream to my C water as my A and B spots were populated by the masses. This can be a good thing at times and a learning tool as it forces you to think outside the box and try areas you would not normally fish.
Luckily I kept on the move and found some relative solitude and got into a few fish. The water was a perfect green but fish were sprinkled in here and there as you sent out your presentation into every pool, pocket, riffle and run. I noticed in my travels that fish were pairing up in the shallows in two's and four's. The highlight of the day was another small birds nest. As I untangled the mess and looked up to located my float,I could not find it. I started to reel in line to find a small male attached to the other end. HA HA!!! I wonder what Brian would call a birds nest with a fish on the business end.
That is all for today..... Tomorrow may be a break from the water to celebrate Dad's birthday and stay away from the people on the stream for a bit.
