Stream in the Valley

The valley is silent in the summer heat-only birds, water and fish.

The stream is slightly high and discolored after the summer rains.

It never disappoints-fish are ready to play even in the mid July noon!

Recent bank stabilization...this spot needed it.

Wild browns are the prize for the patient fisher.

On the Water (Part III)


Today was mostly sight nymphing... small PTs and Kite's bare hook nymphs. Challenging fishing in the summer heat!

On the Water (Part II)


Another beautiful day on the stream... Today was windy, but trout didn't want beatles all the time. Most of the action was happening under the surface with nymphs and woolies, with just enough lazy sippers providing excitement on the top.
