I finally did some trout fishing this evening....owning the boat has kept me away from wade fishing so far this season. The sky was grey and water temps were still in the low 60s.
Three smallmouth took my beadhead caddis pupae imitations, and I could have sworn that one of them was an 18" trout. It came to hand and may have been 11" long....one of the hardest fighting smallies for its size that I've caught in a while.
Towards the end of the evening I finally hung a rainbow on a conehead streamer swung through a deeper hole. It felt good.
Not much going on in the way of insects coming off of the water, hence my nymphing and swinging streamers. Maybe I won't wait until next season to do this again.
