On Sunday, I decided to hit the same stretch of water I hit last weekend because I had so much fun with rising fish. I headed up solo, and to be honest, it was pretty much identical to last weekend, only about 5 degrees cooler.
I opted for the sloppy-tied CDC n' Elk Caddis I posted on here the other night. I found fish rising in the same stretch, but due to increased fishing pressure and a lot more people wading, they were really hugging the opposite bank. With the current moving fast about 6 feet out of the bank, the only shot I had at the consistent sippers was a long really sloppy roll cast with a lot of extra line stripped out, to give the fly a few extra seconds near the risers. I had my first fish on in about 10 minutes after I got there, and proceeded to land 4 more, and lose about 5, including a monster brown that slammed my caddis so hard that he broke off my 8x tippet after only having him hook for about 5 seconds. Nick joined me for about 15 minutes before I headed out, but I won't say how he did. (If you read this blog often...you can probably guess)
