198 c.f.s.

 Josh caught a fish on the first cast right after we left the boat ramp.
He used a yellow stone fly and the A.J. all day. 
The caddis appeared above the Wellsville bridge.
I pumped a fish's stomach.  It had eaten a leech, snail, sowbug, and some misc. moss.

A Trip Into The Abyss

 Stacey caught this fish right after putting in.
 Caught most of the fish on the A.J.
 This fish cost him the privilege of buying dinner for Stacie
We ventured below Vallie Bridge this morning at 168 cfs.
That was a mistake--had to drag the boat through the boulder gardens.

Stacey is now a member of the 20" club.

Today was VERY COLD, but the fish were biting.  The A.J. worked in the morning and the red 2-bit hooker in the afternoon.

Down Stream WIND.

The red 2-bit hooker was the fly of choice today, when we could keep it in the water.

The blue wings were hatching during the afternoon so the fish were hitting
the parachute adams.  We need warm weather!!!

Cool Day

The snow pack is up from last week.   The river needs some water.  This morning the U.S.G.S. reported a mere 170 cfs.

Nice rainbow!!  The "A.J". was working along with the yellow stonefly.

My Last Day on the Slopes

The group skinning up a slope at Monarch Ski Area.
Checking out the edge at the top of Mirkwood.
The wind was gusting to 27 mph
Darlene joined me to look at the view.
I was second one down the slope.  Heavy snow but lots of fun!

Tied up 3 different versions of the A.J. fly.  Caught fish on each one, but it's still in the refining stages.  I'll give it a test run again tomorrow.

R & D Day

This fish was caught on the Naked Hooker (a new fly).
This rainbow was caught on the A.J.  I only had tied 3.  Guess I'd better tie some more.
My good buddy, Brian, rowed half the day so that I could fish. 
That makes for a good time!!!
