Decided about 11 PM last night that today seemed like a good day to go fishing. Left the house this morning at 6:55. Returned home at 7:05 after forgetting to retrieve my fly box from upstairs. Finally got in the water about 8 AM between the Institute and the first wooden bridge. I had never fished this stretch until today. I usually fish between the first and second bridges or even higher. Anyways, the water temp was 66 and the fish were hungry this morning. Got quite a few bites on a hi-vis Ant but couldn't get hooked up. Finally switched over to the green weenie and ended up landing 8 'bows from 5-7 inches. I missed at least a dozen more. No snakes, bears or yellow jacket nests today but there were a whole lot of black flies and some sort of blueish looking fly. Water level was better than I had seen it in a while. Hopefully, the rain will come through this week and keep the levels up. If it does, I know what I am doing next weekend!
