I rowed back to shore, leaving Enlightened with a content smile on her face, to get more beer, and maybe catch a carp while I was waiting for a hatch. The slough beside the boatlaunch is usually full of em, but the water visibility was crap. I started just casting to swirls, hoping for the best(or at least a squawfish). The first fish I caught was a perch roughly the same size as my fly. Then a slimy squawfish. Then to my surprise, two decent bass.
When I finally looked up, I realized the hatch had started without me. Trout were rising everywhere out along the edge of the current. I saddled back up in my toon and was soon into a feisty eighteen inch bow. We both caught a couple before the hatch stopped as suddenly as it started. Enlightened finished with two species, I found four(some kind of slam, I guess).
