I spent the last week tying about 50 dry flies and figured I'd test them out today.
When I pulled up to the stream I saw a bunch of fishermen sitting around and talking. That's never a good sign. Yep, no hatches were going on.
Even though there was no surface activity, I was still able to fool a handful of trout on top by smacking down a furry foam beetle along the edges of a typical feeding lane.
I'm glad I got my fishing in today. Looks like we're gonna get a much needed few inches of rain in the next 36 hours. That will hopefully ensure the stockies behind my house at least have a chance. Right now, it's looking bad for them!
