Waiting on some rain

Last year we in the PacNW complained at the lack of summer it seemed we had. It was cool the whole time, and there was some appreciable rainfall to boot. This year has been a different story. It’s been a more typical PacNW summer with comfortable (mostly) temperatures, plenty of sun, and next to nothing when it comes to rain.

Which sucks for fishing.

I spent the day on the Wilson River yesterday, just scoping things out and throwing flies to some of the resident cutthroat.  The water levels were low, but not devastatingly so. The water was still moving, although just barely in some areas.

What really sucked was seeing fish, big steelhead to be exact, just hanging out in some of the slowest moving holes. It’s agonizing to see only because these fish are crazy tight-lipped right now.

Until the rains come. Then they’ll be on the bite again, and guess where I’ll be…..
