|The fishing train kept on rolling this weekend with Sage and I getting out on the water for a few hours on Saturday and Sunday. Although the sun was shinning, the temperatures stayed pretty cold (and the gusts of wind didn't help any). Despite this, the fishing was actually pretty good given the conditions.
Things started off slow on Saturday, but picked up mid afternoon when some nice trout started feeding under the surface. My dead-drifting nymphs went unnoticed, so I change tactics and started giving my flies a little movement. (this technique, whether with dries or nymphs, always seems to work when fishing slow deep water as the fish usually are keyed in on swimming/moving bugs.) The trout responded to this and I manage to land quite a few fish. Sunday wasn't as productive and I came in earlier after putting up with relentless cold winds. Still, a fish was caught so it wasn't a total loss (and it's never a loss when you're out on the water).
Looks like things might warm up a little this week here in Jackson Hole. If so, I might sneak out tomorrow with my friend Matt. Well, time to create the weekly cartoon..
