Trip Report Window of Opportunity

Nymph fishing is a noble pursuit but it’s time to see what dries have to offer so I head to a place (not THAT PLACE) where skwalas should be out and about, maybe a March Brown or two, and it won’t cost me more that a quarter tank of gas.

They’re calling for showers/thunderstorms but what do they know (a lot, as it turns out)



The rain we’ve been getting the past couple days frosted the tops over here




Supposed to be decent; may have to bring the kayak over here some time




This will be legal in 10 days and there are some nice fish up in this stretch






Spot a dozen of these



No elk today but lots of these




This is where things get interesting




Water is up and chilly but clear; they may not be looking up right away, but patience is a virtue, yes?








Not much happening early on but the sun pops in and out between showers/thunderstorms and warms things up a bit.
Bugs get active (resist the urge to slap your neck)



The window opens up



And foam is back on the menu




It stays relatively busy for about an hour; not tight to the bank but definitely in the softer stuff





And then it shuts down. March Browns come out but no one seems interested; give it another week and things should pick up. Give it 10 days and the big bugs may be out.





Pretty spread




Pretty clouds




Pretty much done





Regards,
Scott
