We launched the drifter and the guys went to work bringing fish to the net while I ran the shuttle. After that we pushed away from the gravel bar and pulled out the streamer rods... With flies sailing overhead we hit some high-value areas and after more time than I wanted to spend the tally was, exactly, zero throwing the groceries. The next best thing in this situation is to pull out nymphing rods and do some deep water nymphing
Vince was the first to strike pay dirt with a nice rainbow, then he bagged a brown and it was on. Cary wasn't about to be outdone, got his drift settled in and he was bringing fish to the net as well. Before we knew it the day was getting away from us and we weren't very far into the float, so we did something I do not ever like to do... We had leave fish to find fish.
Vince was the first to boat a fish after lunch too and again Cary wasn't far behind with another nice rainbow. The good drifts continued to pay off. We continued moving picking the better spots and even stopped to wade for a bit in some likely water. The day began to wind down and we slid into the ramp after a good day on the river. Cary and Vince were both very comfortable with the streamer rods and deep water nymph rigs and guys it was fun to get out on the river with you both. Hope to see you next time you get together in Nashville.
We are booking well into April and have openings in May. The weather and generation have been cooperating for most trips and if one river is generating we usually head to another to make it a good day on the water. So, if you want to set up a day on the river just email or call/text 615-796-5143.
