What a week.
It was a tough week of fishing.
Not for a shortage of fish, seems like there are good numbers of bright silvers, a fair number of good kings, plenty of sockeye, and a few (enough to spot a handful a day) steelhead.
But as for biting, no, not so good.
We did get some good fish, we got some big ones (not very bright) we got some bright ones (not very big) but mostly we watched tons of big strong bright silvers swim by without eating many of our flies.
WAIT, stop thinking that. I know about tight lipped Coho, I have caught them in a dozen rivers where I was told they just wouldn’t bite, but these fish, this week, were something different.
Anyway, I’m sure it will pass, hopefully by tomorrow. I am going camping for couple of days.
When I get back we will make them bite, or catch trout and steelhead.
Neil Strickland and Alyssa Halls packed up their fly shop a couple years ago and took it to Wyoming. For a couple of young people who only spent a few years here they left a pretty good mark. The shop is gone, but their flies are still being fished here.
You can find them now at http://www.owlcreekflies.com in Thermopolis Wyo.
