Fathers Day Fishing
Posted 22 June 2015 - 01:28 AM
Landed this wild boy in the first 1/2 hour on the water, good start to a great morning. My net is 24" overall, so you can get an idea of the size he was.
A few more....
Got a bunch of 10-14"ers in between, and one unusual looking brown with a big hump over his shoulders like a sockeye salmon. Its the second one I have caught like that over the years...wonder what causes it?
No mayflies on my stream, but then again I don't ever see many at 6:00 in the morning. Lots of lime sallies though.
Looking forward to some other reports too. CJ

Very sweet Brown CJ....definitely wild. I myself hit a local croton river tail water only 25 minutes from my house Sunday morning from about 7am to 11 am....and as its close to the cold water reservoir release there were both caddis and sulphurs coming off between some light rain and receptive browns eating them. I landed a very nice number of them in the 8" to 11" range .....mostly wild - and of course there is one pool that the "lunkers" hang out....when I say pool its really a puddle compared to the pools we normally think of as this is a small stream. After landing a couple at the tail end on sulphurs....I knew by the rise form that the boy at the head of the pool was sizable......he ignored my sulphur so I tied on a black CDC flying ant and immediately after his last rise I cast right over his head. He took it...I set the hook and it was fish on....however like a shark I immediately saw the hump of his back charging upstream through the water and within 10 seconds he was off. My estimate minimum 16" plus ......but...I'll be back for him as I know his haunts.
