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
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
