Good Morning

Fri Mar26, 2010…..Foggy, Drizzly morning here in Linville, also much cooler than it has been—lows in mid 30s, high today low 50s lows tonight in the high 20s as a cold front pushes through. We did not get the heavy rains they were calling for, so things look better than anticipated. Will be on the water again soon in a few minutes with Diane and Scott Bertrand. Have a great day and weekend….

What a Great Day

Thurs Mar 25, 2010 …..1100pm….just in after having dinner, what a great day and the rain didnt set in on us until 500pm, tons of Bwos hatching, some egg laying black stones, a few March Browns too, lots of bugs. Guided Adam Harman today, we got 4 citation fish 2 rainbows and 2 brookies, the rainbows 20 and 25" respectively, the brookies one 18" and one 19", and caught about 40-45 fish altogether. The largest bow was Adams personal best to date. Water temp was 48-49F, and the nymph rigs were the way to go. We cast some dries to rising fish but they would not come up for them. Hatches will be in full swing soon and if water levels drop that will mean some excellent afternoon through evening dry fly fishing. It was raining when we called it a day and hope it doesnt rain too much. The ground is saturated and it wont take too much to cause significant runoff. Got to get up bright and early again tomorrow for a trip so time for some shut eye! Check out our YouTube Channel for some neat clips of today’s action http://www.youtube.com/flyfishingkat. Hope your day was terrific.
