Weather is still toying us. Lots of "supposed to be" but no consistency or accuracy. Anyway I head to DePuy's on Saturday. First in the morning, I observed a group of trout in "sight-nymphing", if not "dapping", distance!! Very first cast with my own L.L. Beads,
Nice bow! I had to be happy!!
Everyone who has been fishing the creek for a long time agree that it's strange that we are not seeing Spring Baetis hatch. Barely a few to none. Winds didn't cooperate as always so I did soft-hackle swings. Little one did take a baetis soft-hackle!
Today, Easter Sunday, it started like this. I was doing some experiments!!
Folks, take a look!! This is a split-wing case nymph!! Again crawling on my wader!! C'mon hatch & fly!! BTW, we experienced very cold winds from E or NE, which is very rare. And it caused waves that made the creek look like flowing backward........
Nice rainbow came to the surface and took it confidently!!!
What a surprise!!
I was happy enough to go home. But I need to do the same for new baetis patterns!! That's why I need hatch & rise!! 6 more days of Winter Pass!!
