Mixing in some trout

With winter fishing winding down and having to stay close to home, Bernie and I hit the local waters for some trout action. We had some good action below the surface, but the bright sun kept the marchies from coming off. The caddis, though, did come off, and in blankets. The trout were happy to let most of those bugs pass by without a glance.

With everyone and their mom pimping the mega prince, we used standard stones nymphs and various droppers to mix it up. Most of the fish came on the stone. The best fish of the day took my dropper, ran straight for the middle and broke me off. Later on, Bernie had a nice fish break him off as well. Great day to be on the river.

Bernie here with a nice bow.

Grilling some brats streamside. Bernie is trying to look tough, but ends up looking like he's pissing on the food.

Another nice bow.
