We had a pretty substantial amount of rain yesterday up this way. I knew this and I knew what it had done to the streams that are close by. I almost talked myself into staying away. Just couldn't do it.

This tree is usually beside the stream and the path is to the left side of it.

I swung streamers and dredged heavy egg patterns. I LDRed to average sized rainbows. I also landed a new one. Most of us set the hook on a lot of these and usually they break off or come un-hooked. This one was hook firm and came all the way to hand.

Cleaning the damn things isn't too bad, it's cooking them until they are tender that's a bitch! :o ;) :mrgreen:
