Fly Fishing: Mixed Bag...
Yesterday we headed to the other end the county to check out a favorite brookie haunt...Found it even higher than last weekend (must got one a those ghost downpours we keep hearing about but somehow eludes dumping on Dillon?) Anyway with the crick really ripping we rigged a small black and yellow streamer and a #12 Wickam's Fancy wet on a short leader and sink-tip line...Not even close to Saturday's gangbuster event still we managed to dredge up a few...All brookies, all fat, all pretty as hell, some a might longer in the tooth so to speak, all in all another fun day in the mountains...can't beat it.
Big Hole spiked back up over 3000 past few days; leveled off again yesterday but nasty thunderboomers forecast who knows what the next several might bring? From what we've seen and heard not much fishing happening in either the Big Hole or the Beav...Like the forecast nasties who knows what that is all about? I hope to finish up the boat restoration today. Depending how the weather turns we plan to haul the camper and stay out several days...stay tuned.
