I haven't been to the park to fish much this year but something told me to go give it a try. There was a chance of rain and I had a feeling maybe I could catch a nice fish under the overcast conditions that Monday was set to provide. I headed out and made it to the river just after lunch as the rain was just starting. I slid on the rain jacket, tied on a olive bead headed wooly bugger and made my way down to the river. I picked my spot and let it fly. As soon as the bugger hit the water this guy came from the depths and nailed it!
He measured at 16in. and is my best park fish. I ended up cacthing 6 fish in about 3 hours of fishing between downpours. The rest were in the 8 to 12in. range as shown below.
It was just one of those days where I could have packed up after the first cast and gone home happy!!
