Easter trout

Friday I went home for the weekend for Easter. I went out and pitched some streamers friday evening. With the air temperature at a brisk 33 degrees, the trout fishing was hot. I landed 5 chunky rainbows on marabou leech patterns in only an hour. The stream I fish gets heavy fishing pressure and with no significant spawn, they are dependant on stocking. Since stocking ended in September I am targeting the holdovers that actually act like real trout . I also went out yesterday before the easter dinner, and despite the turbid water from the spring run-off, I landed 3 nice rainbows on a grey zonker pattern. Simple pleasures of life.

Rivers were all blown out here in the N.W. (8" of rain in the coast range, 2+" in the valley) on Easter. Glad that Mr. Bunny was good to you Travis! I sure could go for a "Chunky" Bow right now, but the weather gurus are calling for more rain and up to 2' of snow in the Cascades
But we need it to come back from this dry spell.
