Fished last night from about 5:30 pm to close to 9 pm, Red's to Slab. I fished a stimi with a caddis dry dropper and even tried a hopper, although it proved to be a bit too early for them yet. Lots of little fish pecking the caddis and every once in a while would pick up a decent fish. By far the best fish though slowly sipped the stimi on a cut bank while I was engaged in PBR and discussion. Ran under the boat and required an extra set of hands to net him. Pushed close to 20". One odd thing about him though was the gill plate appearing to be cut. I've seen mention of it here before...I believe it's a genetic thing. First I've seen it. The fish put up a good fight and took a bit longer to recuperate from the fight and warmer water temps. Just a reminder, fight the fish fast and cut em loose. Ended up getting off the water before dark due to the winds and flows, but still managed to get into the evening caddis hatch which allowed us to net a few more fish. For those looking for big fish on a little flies, now's the time! Before too long they will only be looking for hoppers..........AND I CAN'T FRIGGIN WAIT!
