Another day out on the stream, but this time I
took care of some other business in the morning and headed up to
Oak Creek for that early spring afternoon bite.
Meanwhile Chromeseeker must have passed me on the
highway...as I was arriving we got our cell connection and I found
out he had left probably 5 minutes prior. Saw one steelhead taken,
but not much else going on. He was headed to Kenosha Harbor, which
turns out was all muddy too.
I personally was hoping for the sun to warm things
up...I hiked a good portion of the stream and then fished the upper
stretches where fish should stack up during a fresh run. All the
same I didn't see squat going on. Lost a bunch of flies in the rocks
and trees, didn't hook into anything. In fact, the ONLY fish I saw
was a small trout that whacked the surface in a slow eddy.
It was nice to once again get out, but all that
effort was for naught. Yeah, that's skunk #3 in a row.
