Yesterday morning I guided a half day trip for a fella who had great skills and a younger angler who is just starting. He progressed well over the day! Both landed fish but the newer to the sport angler landed the most.
He did well fishing a San Juan worm deep. Shortly after this fish was caught he lost a much larger one that pulled him quickly into a deep undercut. A learning experience!
The stream had a light stain but fishing was a little tricky. We spotted very few rises and got very few swipes on the streamer.
One of the guys texted me later in the day. He fished a bit further upstream. He ran into the land owner who told him that the stream has seen a ton of pressure since the catch and keep opening day. On my way home I heard a report that this year saw the highest fishing licenses “in a generation”. Lots of pressure. Streams remain low and clear-tough conditions.
