So far this September it has been like this.......
9/4 Kempfield Pool - 1.5 hrs fished, 2 browns both on dries
9/12 Rezendes Section - 1.25 hrs fished, 1 brown on dries
9/20 Lower Trestle Pool - 1.5 hrs fished, 7 browns on dries (great night)
9/24 Kempfield/lower trestle - 2 hrs. fished 4 browns on dries
All of the above took place from 6pm and after. I fished a size 16 olive or brown emerger but switched to a size 16 olive comparadun when the light began to fail. It was great every time except for the beavers that began to ruin things around nightfall.
One might say that I didn't spend a lot of time on the river and that was because of a few guiding gigs (guides don't fish) and because of three trips to the Swift where fishing has been VERY good and a weekend on the Farmington where I chased and actually caught a lot of nice browns on sub #20 emergers. It was heaven!!!!!!! I hope (maybe against hope) to make it out before this weekend which is totally committed to non-flyfishing activities. Yes, there is a life beyond flyfishing I guess.
