Water conditions good, took the day off from fishing. Reports I got today from most anglers fishing slow the last couple of days.

Condition again top notch today. Had a fish tear the roe bag apart, would not come back.  ??? Maybe he or she will still be in the run and I will give it another try after lunch.

Water was still holding when I looked a couple of hours ago, was miserable out there with the rain we had for a good part of the day. I felt more miserable by breaking off my third fish of the year  ??? ::), felt like a  good sized one too but of course the ones that get away are always big. ;D

I think I better get away from my 8 pound test leaders, especially when I have a nick in the one today. :-X :-[

Hope it remains clear for you tomorrow and you tangle with one of the good sized ones that are out there.

Remember to check your leader and not be so careless like I was today. :'(

Even if its not so great it still will be good to get out! I am thinking  12lb leader for the fast water.

finished up in the lower (peach) at 6:30 pm today and the water was still mint with about 3' of vis so you never know. I thought it would blow at any time today as is came down in buckets but even Tam remained very fishable. The only reason I say this is I am not fishing tomorrow or sunday :P

 Any word on how it looks today? The graph indicates the river is on the rise.
