Man, the best thing about this outing was the sunset and BOTH batteries for my camera were DOA. FN Battery Packs...you can't just go get them at the gas station.

I was headed up to see my folks, just a couple folks were fishing off the public pier when I got there around 7:30. I fished 'til about 9:00. There was a massive caddis thing going on...didn't look like a hatch, probably a fall.

I could've saved myself from the skunk by switchin up to ANYTHING little enough for a bluegill to eat, but to be fair the bluegills were so small my fly was bigger than some. I did have one bite, whatever...a tug that just as easily could have really been a weed. KINDA DISAPPOINTING folks. But it DOES count as a day I fished ;)
