Sorry for the delay in getting this out, I have been digging out from the work I left. My friend Doug and I arrived at the Bone Valley site around noon on Thursday, set up camp and were off to do what we came for. We fished Bone Valley Thursday afternoon and many fish were brought to hand but mostly small browns and bows. The tail of almost every pool brought a strike to the Neversink Caddis. We were both pretty tired so we called it a day so we could get up early on Friday. Friday was more of the same and I caught plenty of small rainbows and browns. It wasn’t until I got back to camp around 6 that I figured out that I had been fishing behind Doug all day so I went out for a few more downstream of camp. All of the fish were bigger than I’d caught all day. Finally in the last pool I caught something with a little more muscle.

And then the last cast of the day this one fell for the green weenie.

It rained about 2.5 inches Friday nite and into Saturday, blowing out the creek. We tried to fish a little but chickened out. I would say that it was up between 2 and 3 feet at the crest. We even walked up almost to 82, but the water was still way too high for my liking. Still a great trip even though we lost a day of fishing. I wish I lived closer. The guys at the marina said they were going to draw down the lake next year to work on the dam so they won’t be running the shuttles like they have.

If you have the time, my partner made a video of the trip.
