I haven't been able to go fishing lately due to the wife's health problems and also taking care of a new puppy. Lots of home caregiver responsibilities of late. I finally got out for three hours (including drive, rigging up, and fishing) earlier this morning. It hasn't rained in over 2 weeks, so I knew the water would be low, but this very small stream has really turned skinny. Extremely tough conditions.

Looking down at the creek, I knew I was in trouble. Low water!

This is the first rainbow I've ever caught in this stream. It's a native brookie section. No idea where this feller came from --

All in all, an OK quick trip. Beautiful day, but piss-poor catching. We need some rain!

Glad you were able to get out Phil. Looks like you made a pretty good day out of those tough conditions.
