On which day would you rather fish?

Posted on May 27 2018

You get to pick: 

                              #1  Sunshine in a cloudless sky, temp in the mid 80's, with afternoon thermals and a windless evening.

- -or - -
                              #2  60 degrees temp, heavy overcast skies, intermittent rain or a light drizzle and little or no wind?

FYI-

Last Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were #1's.

Last Tuesday and today were #2's.

Please vote in the comments section before reading "the rest of the story" (apologies to Paul Harvey, God rest his soul).

Well, on M, W, T, and F,  there were Caddis in the morning,  Hendricksons in the afternoon, bank sippers in shady spots late afternoon and every fish in the river up eating spinners or caddis emergers in the evening.

On last Tuesday and today, there were next to no caddis, (they like sunshine and warm temps, both to hatch and to lay eggs), the Hendricksons and the rainy day olives were "no shows" (where I was) and a fog covered the water quelling the spinner fall. 

How'd I do?  Had wonderful fishing on #1 and got my tail kicked on #2. 

You won't know unless you go, or read about it here.

Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day!

    What ever the weather is on the day I can get away to fish. I have a love/hate relationship with the weather on my day off
