It's time to fess up. I fished the park about 4 days between May 12-17, saw some fish, got a few nibbles and got real wet a few times in the rain, but caught nary a trout.
I fished Greenbriar and Tremont up and down around the Institute with no luck. Out at Greenbriar I pulled into a parking area not far up from the hq that looked like a perfect spot with real easy access. It was a wide run with plenty of casting room, but just wasn't my lucky spot.
Tried everything yellow I had in my box and experimented with some nymphs too.
The flow was pretty fast, I thought, and I struggled with my drifts. Maybe that was it.
Admittedly, I am a beginner and didn't get frustrated as it was only my second full-fledged fly fishing excursion.
What I got was determined to come back and fish some more.
I will return!
