I went up north Tuesday to my favorite river, I haven’t been since the last week in May. I couldn’t sleep so I just got up about 1:30 am and hit the road by 2:30. I took my time and arrived just before day break. I was at the spot I wanted to be as the sun was making its way up and started swinging a olive soft hackle. I was pleasantly surprised to be catching quit a few smaller fish. Then the tricos made there appearance and I switched to trico spinner pattern, it was wonderful technical sort of fishing. I lost count of how many fish I caught, nothing big but I really like this fishing. It was so good to be back to my favorite river, And I try to enjoy every minute, and all of the wonderful things Mother Nature shares with me.

Good for you, Mike! Any action, especially with dry flies, beats no action any day! & I LOVE 3-WEIGHTS!!!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Trico fishing is the best! Glad you did well.
