Dan great pictures.
It sure was a hot day out there. Thanks for the heads up on DC12. Rick and Brent(Hinton) and myself did DC10 the Bridge on Wolf Lake road. We had done this on before with little luck. We got started around 10:30 I was the only one that decided to wet wade glad I did. Water temp was at 17C so not much room for cutoff Temp. head up stream
As before lots of nice looking water but no fish in it. Saw ton's of Stonefly husks no stoneflies. It was getting close to 19C when were came up to a small log jam with maybe 4ft deep pool which looked promising. Rick chucked in a CFF and had a fish on. He got it in to where he was reaching for it and he threw the hook. Just a bit of cussing. I worked down a bit to a fallen tree crossing the stream. I was casting into seem with a Fat Albert and had fish taking a swipes at it on most cast but couldn't hook up. Finally one got tired of playing and smacked the fly really good. Fish on he put up a good scrap got him to net finally and measured out at 10inches. Brent meanwhile wonder up stream a bit. Rick did manage another 6incher maybe.
We stopped for a bite and then headed back up stream and came up to a very slow stretch and was surprised to see the odd rise. Come to find out the stretch was very silty but had some pretty good depth. Brent manage to hook his first which was nice to see. It to was around the 9inch range. We could still see fish rising further down but the water temp reached the Magic 20C so we head back to the vehicle. We got back at about 2:20 and the temp was up to 22C. All the fish caught had never been caught in the survey groups as all none of the finns had been clipped.
Too us it was a success as fish caught in a spot that we had fished before with no luck. If we get this spot again will fish it a bit different.
Oh guess what I didn't fall in unlike like someone else in the group Right Brent. We all had a good laugh once we knew he was alright.
Good day and Good Fishing Buddies
