Brad, Ben, Joe and I headed off for a day of hiking and a little trout fishing on a warm sunny 50 degree day. We all used Joe Fly spinners with Gold blades, silver didn't seem to work at all, except Joe who used mostly mini tube jigs. Joe caught one on tubes, Brad caught 6, Ben caught 4, and I caught 6. All 17 fish were rainbows and we didn't catch anything bigger than 18 inches. The water was gin clear and a lot of trout could see us and just would not bite well. Most of the fish we caught were on the lower section of the stream. We had a good time and plan to go fishing again when the opportunity comes around.

Joe Yancey & I headed out on a 30 degree morning for some trout fishing. When we left the house there was snow flying and wind blowing. But after we got on the water at 11am the snow stopped and the wind died. The eyes on our fishing poles were constanly freezing and there were huge ice chuncks floating in the river. We used Joe fly elit spinners with gold blades and caught 20 total trout by 2pm. Joe caught 11 and I caught 9. We each caught 2 fish that were over 20 inches. For a cold snowy second day of the year we had a great day. At one point in time I caught a 20 inches back to back with a 22 inch fish on consecutive casts.
