Went for a stroll plus on Sunday. Finally got to wet a line. Still wore the snowshoes with 10'-18" snow still in the woods,and very loose. The weather gods decided to pull a cruel prank and furnish plenty of air and temps barely 40*. The forecast called for 15-25 mile winds, but they didn't say what the gusts would be. Old oak leaves were flying along with sticks and branches riding the currents.
Tried a few obligatory initial casts with winter caddis dries. As the wind ramped up I switched to a couple nymphs. Broke off a nice fish on a #20 black stone fly nymph. Try as I might couldn't drum up another hit. Had a fish take a fluttering/emerging stone just in front of me while I was having a break. Couldn't entice anything there either.
It was nice finally getting into the river and throwing some line. Off course today was warmer with diminished winds and work.
To be continued...
