Today was my first day at the fly shop and it went great. After work I decided to go fishing since the weather was so nice. I first headed up to warm river to see if any caddis were coming off. They were coming off like crazy but there werent a whole lot of fish on them at all. I drove down to the take out at Ashton and spoke to a man who had floated the river and fished all day. He said the fishing was very slow and he only saw two fish up on bugs all day. I was disappointed that none of the fish were keying in on the bus but expected it a little to the rivers rising flows. I decided to venture further downstream and hit fun farm, which turned out to be a good choice. I pulled up and watche for some rises and found one fish rising pretty regularly. I got in position and casted and he hit the fly pretty quickly. Unfortunately for me I got a little excited and pulled the hook straight out of his mouth. Needless to say he was no longer interested when I casted again. I decided to move further upstream and check out a flat that I like to fish. No fish were up on it so I decided I would swing a wooly bugger dropped with a rubber legs. This was the ticket. Just a few casts in I had a nice trout on the end of the line. I didn’t realize it was a fish until it was too late though and it got off. I managed a couple trout and missed a few others as well. I saw one whopper of a fish rise that I hope lives in that stretch of river so I have a chance at him next time.
