The clarity of the stream looked much better than last week, but the water level is still a bit low. Hopefully rain will pass through our area this coming week.
I started the day off with a bead head rubber leg bugger. This is the same fly I have thrown for years. Not much luck. Slow start to the day. I finally convinced one smallie to take the bugger as I was swinging it off a rocky bank. Average size; nothing to write home about.
I switched many times during the first half of the day. At least eight different flies: popper, foam cicada, couple different streamers. Not much excitement.
I then put on the D&H Clouser (purple & white to mimic Ted's larger purple & white streamer). First cast...BAMM. Nice take and we are off to the races!
The rest of the day I stayed with the D&H Clouser and it produced ten fish with three being above average.
Moral of the story..."If it ain't happening, switch it up!"
