Trip Report Three watersheds, three streams, three pups ...

So got up at about 1:00 AM, did a few hours works then packed up the truck, loaded the pups, and were off by about 4:30. We made our way over to the wet side, and arrived at a small stream that I won't name at about 6:30. Given the beauty of this particular stream, it's amazing it doesn't get more attention, but I'm thankful it doesn't. We saw no one and few traces of others.

The waters were low and the feesh spooky, but we did fool a lot of these on small PMDs (#18s-20s):

What's down there?

'Bout 11:00, after several miles downstream and back, hopped in the truck and went over one or three passes (I won't tell) to a second stream, this one a little more famous. We stopped for 1 hole in particular, access for wading is generally tough on this stream, much better suited for floating:

There wasn't the hatch I was expecting and only got a few small ones, not any of the larger feesh that I often pull from here:

After about an hour, went back over to the dry side and a favorite local small stream:

Maggie loves to lay in this stream, well, she loves to lie in any stream, or a puddle for that matter

Home by 6:00.

Now, we didn't catch anything big, biggest was maybe pushing 12" and that could be stretching it, but it's not the size of the fish, but the quality of the day. We ran into virtually no one, pups could run free and splash about (I'm sure they spook all the big feesh) without worry of them bothering others, or spooking their big feesh. We had a great day on our three streams.

Cheers
