April 4, as I walked to the intended spot, I realized I forgot my landing net in my truck. It was a bit too far for me to get back, plus afternoon baetis hatch time was coming. I kept on. I practiced hand-netting, which I'm not bad at.
one of my neighborhood anglers on the creek and shared a stretch. Les snapped several action pictures!
An accidental catch!
Day started with some spot-holding-confrontation on the creek.....
Winter Pass on DePuy's Spring Creek has been my staple, shaping up my body and fishing senses from the fall through spring. Then I'm always learning something from the creek, trout, and other anglers who are also enthusiastic to the spring creek fishing.
There's no particular reasons to make 50 rods (or less or more) but it just sounds good and I've been hitting the mark for the past 5 seasons, which have been positive impacts to me as a guide and an angler. Thank DePuy's family to answer my compulsive phone calls and random visits!!
Also, ending Winter Pass doesn't mean I'm done with spring fishing!! There are more waters available by now!!
