For the last day of fishing I hit the San Joaquin river in devils post pile national monument.... Woah, what an amazing place. The hiking and scenery were jaw dropping, and the dry fly fishing was phenomenal - my best day of dry fly fishing ever. They weren't big- 10" browns and 8-10" bows, but they were rising like mad and targeting different hatches which made things very fun. I'd fish a run with a larger pale mayfly dry - size 12- and pick off the browns, then switch over to a size 16 Adams and catch the bows. I am a steelheader and saltwater fisher primarily and have never seen a scenario like this before. I fished a single 50 yard section of river and caught maybe 13 or 14 trout- mostly browns. Never experienced trout fishing like this before. I was bridge spotting risers and then picking them off - but the meadow section above the bridge was by far the best, most amazing trout creek fishing I've ever seen. So so so happy with my Sage SLT 389 - the perfect small trout dry fly rod. Paired with the Rio Grand 3 wt line it's the most effortless rod I own now and it's definitely my new go to trout rod. My Sierras trip is come to an end but I will be back many many times. Sorry for the lack of pics here, I was too busy CRUSHING it.
