Default Re: fishing after a rain

I do better after rain fairly often as well, at least in the warm months. Some of my best days have been when the water is up and stained. That's when all the larger fish come out to play. Last summer, I caught a 14 inch brown on a large nymph when the water was very close to resembling chocolate milk. I don't know how they see the fly but I'm not complaining. On the other hand, I don't seem to do as well after the rain during the cooler months... :-/ High water in the summer usually equals great fishing though!!! 8-)
