Housatonic 6/24

Looking at the forecast I thought this week-end was going to be a bust. Then I checked the river report and it seems the big downpours missed the upper Housy and it was running clear. So, I packed the 7wt and headed up to a spot I havent fished for a couple of years since we got "run of river". When I last visited the entire stretch was dry but now has a good head of water and an even better head of fish. I managed the thread the needle between a bunch of big boulders to tempt this one:



Several more bronzebacks and a few rock bass rounded out the day. Plus I got some shots at a few huge carp but couldn't connect today. I'll definitely be back there when the sun eventually comes out
