What a Soggy Day…
Fri. Apr. 19, 2013…..Today was soggy, but also a gift as I feel fortunate that we were able to fish at all. Things were high and swollen already and then the rains came. I guided Dr Ken Karb, Dr Hy Muss, and Ted Birke and we had a decent outing despite all the rain.
The guys were staying for a few days so they wanted to fish regardless. We caught a few before the color of the water got so dingy that yanking big streamers was our only option the rest of the day. We did well considering the high water netting about 25-30 fish total and Ted with the largest a rainbow that measured just under 22" at 21.5 ". We quit about 4pm when some extremely heavy downpours pretty much ended it as the water went past the threshold of the level and color that you can still expect to catch fish.
We are watching the water levels this evening to see if fishing tomorrow will even be possible since the heavy afternoon rain and resulting runoff has everything here high and blown out.
Have a great evening…and pray for a few dry days!
