|When the water is high and dirty, go dark and have fun!|
The water was higher and pretty murky compared to the previous days and weeks. The caddis were not hatching and it was too bright and windy for the BWOs to come out, but as the day went on, I caught fish. It wasn't easy, but when the water is dirty, throw streamers. It was fun and I moved a ton of fish. The thing with throwing streamers is that you see 2-3 times the amount of fish than nymphing, but the hook-ups can be scarce. I had enough fish on that it was not a bad day. To finish the day off, I was able to throw some #20 dries to some rising fish on BWOs as the day ended dark and cool. I didn't take any pictures today, and I apologize for giving you a story with no pictures, because I think blog posts are worthless without pictures! So even though the day was not perfect and I worked hard for fish, the day ended with rising fish and a G2 in my hand. I guess I can't complain.
