Decided to meet up with a new buddy from this board today. Kevin from Maryville. We decided to hike up a ways and we got to our starting spot at around 8:30 am. The weather was warm but not muggy at all. Water temp an amazing 60 degrees. We began to pick up small specs fairly quickly and proceeded with a good pace all day up until about 3 pm when we decided to call it a day. I didn't really see a whole lot of bug activity but did see a few Light Cahills in the afternoon. We caught and released about 45 fish between us today. No lunkers but a few 8" brookies came to hand. On our way out we got our bonus for the day when we ran into a black bear yearling strolling along on the trail. All in all a very good day and my friend seemed to enjoy the day as well.
