Sunshine on my shoulders

Posted on April 16 2016

Heavy frost at day break quickly gave way to bright sun and warm temps. I drove around from 12:00 'til 2:15 when I saw the first splashy rise.  Got in the water but didn't hook my first fish until 2:50

The water was lower and warmer. The bugs hatched better but got off the water quicker with the warmer air temps.  There was better feeding (still mostly subsurface) but it was over quick.  A one hour feeding frenzy after which you had to look hard to find a feeding fish.

When the first Hendricksons are on you don't need to go fishing in the morning. Tie flies, rake the lawn, was the car, the fish know when dinner is served and they don't come to the table 'til it's on the water.

BTW- I counted 15 trailers at Buckingham (no doubt a record for (4/15).
