Decent olives get some fish up.

Posted on September 12 2016

The crisp, dry air felt nice, mid forties last night cooled the rivers and there was "space behind the hills" for the first time in two months. The bright sun was still with us, however, and the frontal system didn't bring enough rain to fill a tea cup.

As promised I tried the Lordville riff this afternoon. The bright sun probably didn't help - then again it might not have mattered- never saw a fish. If they have moved back they sure don't want anyone to know about it. If anyone tries to get you to float from Buckingham to Long Eddy this week - don't go.

Stopped at junction pool and watched two guys in pontoon boats casting into the foam line. Saw no risers. Then drove up to Deposit and watched some Yellow Drakes float unmolested the length of the Men's Club pool, never saw a rise or a fisherman. Went down to the gamelands where two empty parking lots were to much to resist. Fished for two hours without even seeing a rise then rose and hooked two ten inch rainbows on consecutive casts. As the sun went behind the hill the number of olives on the water increased and a few fish took notice. They never fed steadily but if you marked a rise and made good casts, the fish would give you a careful look. Got my share of refusals, hooked five more fish and landed four. A 17 inch male rainbow with beautiful colors got fish of the day.
