Fish perked up with weather change.

Posted on June 24 2020

The rain early this morning amounted to little more than a heavy dew.  The rivers didn't come up but the air changed.  It was noticeably cooler with a very nice breeze.  Spent the morning working on my trim painting project and didn't get serious about fishing until almost seven in the evening.

Drove up to Deposit and found plenty of room to fish (had a pool to my self).  There were a few stenos hatching and the fish were looking to eat. Most casts at risers got looks.  Refusals out numbered takes by at least three to one but there were plenty of fish willing to eat my flies. There were small olives on the water late and the fish got on them.  Kept my steno on as it was easier to see in the dark.  The fish didn't seem to mind.

Don't know if the  change in the weather was the reason but tonight was the best  fishing of the week - by far.

    I was in the gamelands last night, lots of bugs and rising fish from 7:30 on. Landed several fish but none were nigger than 15"

    I fished above Hales Eddy last night. It was very quiet till late. I had a private drift boat float 10 yds from me. He went in front of me instead of behind. It takes one bad apple to ruin it fo all.
    I did lose a great fish was using a iso emerger just before the drift boat incident and that didn’t help my mood!!!
    What’s your experience with private drift boats. guides are extremely polite and I haven’t had a problem with them.
    Great articles!!!! I read every day
    Take care and keep writing
