Default Walker Camp Prong 06/08/10

I took the afternoon off from work on Tuesday and hit Walker Camp Prong for a while. The water was low and crystal clear, making for some challenging fishing. I started out with a Light Cahill without so much as a rise. I switched to an EHC and then a Yellow Stimulator, getting some slaps but no takers.

When you keep trying similar stuff without success, sometimes you just have to pull something different out of the hat. So I switched to a #18 Royal Wulff and started catching fish, all bows. When I lost the RW, I went back to a Stimulator with the same success as before - none. Sometimes it's just tough to give up on the old reliables.

So I took off the Stimulator and tied on an Orange Palmer. With the first cast, I caught the best fish of the day, a rainbow in the 11" range. I got a couple of pictures from the day but because my home computer is down, I'll have to wait and post those later.

It's fun playing hooky

Sounds good!
You know something completely odd I think from last week is that I tried a stimulator, Royal Coachman, EHC, and a couple of others by themselves and did catch a couple and got a few slaps like you said, but, I decided to try a dropper. I tied on a tiny midge and of all things they started taking the topwater more consistantly! They hit solid and I had more hookups. This could have been a fluke but for the fish I caught over a couple of days last week it worked better than a dry by itself. ?? I only caught one fish on the dropper itself, go figure.

I fished Walker camp prong on 6-5-10, it was raining and I only fished a few hours. I caught 8 fish 3 brookies, 4 bows and one very unusual fish. I want to call him a brookbow. He had a very orange belly, white fin tips trimmed in black just like a brookie, but he also had a very prominent rose colored stripe down his side like a rainbow. I know they spawn at different times, but i know what i caught and what i saw. I did not have my camera due to the rain.
